Nintendo's Portable-only Switch Lite will release this September
 
Is handheld-only Switch really a Switch?

so its a DS?

Yeah this is because the 3DS line is essentially being deprecated, 3DS's are only still in manufacture because of customer/retail demand but Nintendo arn't making any more games for that platform and want Switch to be their main handheld line too, which means they need a model that's cheaper and more rugged for the young 'uns or people who want a pure handheld.

with how many video's on YT repairing the joy-cons on these I think I'd rather pay the extra for the proper switch

To be fair most of the things that caused issues have been removed entirely, or were there because of the re-movability, Switch's OG design was fundamentally kinda fragile in a few aspects which doesn't seem to be the case with this chunky little thing with no detachable parts.

Nintendo Switch 5C.

It's a shame they got rid of dual screen handheld consoles...

Watched 1 the other day 18 joy-cons and the amount that had the bumper button inside broken off, at least with the proper switch you can replace them

These seem to have different, chunkier bumpers though, I doubt they'd stick with a known design flaw, the bumpers in the JoyCons were really light, clicky and a little loose compared to say the WiiU because of how thin they are.

As much as I want a Switch, I'm still gonna wait for a more powerful one.

Yep same, spent a lot of time with them but not committed to my own one yet, personally I think it's the only console with anything too interesting for a PC gamer, the exclusives on there are on a completely other level of quality and polish to what you find elsewhere imo. BoTW is going to be the benchmark for open world adventure games for quite a while, without a doubt my favourite game of all time, and lots of other charming gems on there.

Its BotW alone that has me tempted to pick one up. Will be nice to play on a 15hour flight to brazil next month.

Digital foundry did a recent tech analysis where they conclude that the new T210b version of the Tegra X1 used in the Mini is a 16nm die shrink of the original, and uses its power savings to significantly reduce battery size/weight while still giving a moderate battery life boost. It seems like a new revision of the original Switch model is coming which switches to the new SoC(Likely because of the major security flaws in the original X1 too) but there's no indication whether that'll stick with the original battery for much longer life or use the new smaller battery(Though seems to avoid making any use of the extra clock speed headroom confirmed for this revision). Apparently a "Switch Pro" or anything with performance gains won't be this year by all indications. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfkcYxsI4x8

Well didn't take long to solve that
