Microsoft Unveils Next-Gen Xbox, Project Scarlett, Launching in 2020
Microsoft has taken the wraps off the next generation Xbox console coming in 2020. Codenamed Project Scarlett, the next version of the Xbox is going to be a BIG update, bringing with it a faster, more powerful processor, more RAM, and Solid State Drives, which Microsoft says will make the system 40% faster. The company says this new xbox will be 4X more powerful than the current top end Xbox One X and will be capable of supporting 8K gaming and high frame rate 120FPS gameplay. No word on pricing or even an official name, but Microsoft says the new console will launch in the Fall of 2020.
We’re getting an early look at the next Google Pixel thanks to some leaks, and boy, does it look a lot like an iPhone. Renders were published today of what is believed to be The Google Pixel 3 based off of internal documents, prominently showcasing the phone’s rear triple camera set up in a square formation, eerily reminiscent of what’s being reported for the upcoming iPhone 11. I do want to make it clear - both phones have yet to be announced and all of these renders are just speculation at this point - so we’ll have to wait for the fall to see what happens. The upcoming Pixel 4 is expected to launch with a Snapdragon 855 processor and 6GB of RAM before the end of the year.
Apple has updated Beats 3 headphones with new colors, but unfortunately, that’s it. The Bluetooth headphones, which have gone almost 3 years without an update, now sport some new colors in the Club Collection, giving customers new color choices like blue and yellow, white and red, and blue and white. For its $200 price tag, many hoped Apple would update the line with the company’s custom W2 audio processor and maybe some noise cancelation, but that did not happen with today's update.
