While we are celebrating the reveal of the switch lite, Nintendo has quietly made a request to make some changes to the original Nintendo Switch. These new changes include..a new chip and processor that could theoretically improve the performance of the original Switch. 
According to The Verge, Nintendo submitted a new filing to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requesting permission to alter an existing device. In this case to make changes to FCC ID: BKEHAC001, which refers to the original Nintendo Switch. 
Nintendo requested a Class II permissive change in order update the system-on-chip (SoC), NAND Memory type, and CPU Board. This means Nintendo is looking to at least update the Nvidia Tegra processor, or the Switch’s SoC, for a newer one. While we continue, have a look at the switch lite below if you haven't seen it.
