On one of the Chinese forums user fj8885, claiming that he is an employee of one of factories of Foxconn, has revealed details about Nintendo Switch. These details he learned through what works on the Assembly line that assembles the device.
According to these data, a docking station, which holds the console, is a rather primitive device. It is equipped with USB 3.0 ports, USB 2.0 (x2) and HDMI. On the housing there are holes for access of air to the console. And they need because the Switch is equipped with a cooling system with a fan and a heat pipe length of 120 mm.
