The Steam Deck already figured to be one of the most popular pieces of gaming hardware this holiday season, but now Valve is taking a page from Nintendo’s book by releasing a new iteration with a larger OLED screen. The Steam Deck OLED will boast other improvements, too, including a slimmer form factor, enhanced thumbsticks, longer battery life, and more. It will be available to order starting November 16 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Let’s take a look at everything you need to know before the Steam Deck OLED is available to purchase next week.

Steam Deck OLED availability and price

Though Valve hasn’t announced exactly when orders will be shipped, the “preorder” date of November 16 is essentially a launch date. Initial orders are expected to ship in the days following release.

The Steam Deck OLED will be available in two different storage capacities: 512GB and 1TB. The 512GB and 1TB models are largely the same, save for two key differences. The 1TB model is fitted with an anti-glare etched glass screen; the 512GB model does not have an anti-glare screen. Additionally, the 1TB model comes with a carrying case with a removable inner shell.
