SteamOS 3.5.2, Steam Deck OLED Support

A new update for the SteamOS Preview branch was launched today, and while it doesn't offer immense improvements, it does add support for the upcoming Steam Deck OLED. This means when you get your new device, and decide to go on the preview branch to try out the benefits of 3.5, you will now have the support required to do so! Valve also removed a fake splash screen that happened during reboot and shutdown, which is a nice addition to an OLED focused update!

If you want to try out this update, you will need to go to your System Settings and switch the update channel over to "Preview". Otherwise, you will be on the stable version, which is 3.4.11

SteamOS 3.5.2 Preview Update Changelog:
