Created and owned by Microsoft, Xbox is basically a video gaming brand which represents consoles that are designed and developed by Microsoft. Its three consoles have already been launch in sixth, seventh and eighth generation respectively.

First, the brand was introduced on November 15 in the year 2011, with the release of original Xbox that crossed 24 million units in the month of May 2006. Competing with Sony’s PS 3, the successor Xbox 360 was released in November 2005 reaching 78.2 million units across the globe. Next arrived, Xbox One, which was launched in 2013, November and competing with Play Station 4. Now comes the best part for the gaming freaks. When it comes to the discussion of Project Scorpio/Xbox 2 (i.e. the successor of Xbox One) every gaming guru’s heart skips a beat for that very day when Xbox 2 would get launched.

Xbox 2 Specs

Perhaps the biggest question of the gamers worldwide now is about the release date of Xbox 2 (Project Scorpio). Well, to be honest, now we can do just one thing! Predicting the future and setting the stage! For the time being, we can just hope to have the ultimate gaming system sooner than to be thought of! But right now, let us have a look on the speculated specifications which are predicted for Xbox 2 or Project Scorpio.

Key Specs

Memory / CPU / GPU / RAM

Undoubtedly, Microsoft is on its way to create benchmarks in order to boast the key specs of Xbox 2 (Project Scorpio). With the following Xbox 2 specs, Microsoft is ready to show their goals in creating the most powerful console till date. Mentioned below are the final speculated specs for Memory / CPU / GPU / RAM. Let us have a look.

  • Memory: 12GB GDDR5, 326GB/s bandwidth
  • CPU: Eight custom x86 cores that clocked at 2.3GHz
  • GPU: 40 customized compute units that clocked at 1172MHz
  • 4K UHD Blu-ray optical drive

Xbox 2 Controller

When Xbox One was a rumor, some predicted that it might do away with the classing controller. Instead, it would replace some other device and rely completely on Kinect in order to control the games. However, Microsoft released an improved classic controller so that it can go with Xbox One. But the designs were quite similar to that of Xbox 360. Physical motion controllers have never been done by Microsoft. Recently, Windows 10 headsets actually don’t need any for the purpose of tracking. While rumors suggest, Kinect can actually offer a VR to Microsoft which would offer hands-free experiences of virtual reality. But as for now let us wait to witness its release date.

Hard Drive

Microsoft launched Xbox One S, where they offered a model of 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB. According to an interview Phil Spencer said something similar Xbox 2 (Project Scorpio) by stating, “That said, the opening price point of the Xbox One S, and the different hard drive sizes, that is a critical part of this whole product. When I think it as a product line, you should expect the pricing to kind of be in line with that.”

So, we can expect Xbox 2 to arrive in different hard drive sizes along with an emerging hard drive technology to be known as Shingled Magnetic Recording.

Xbox 2 is expected to get released in this year, but as we all know rumors are better to be followed and not to trust. As of now we have to wait for more updates.

iOS 11: Predicted Screenshort Alert Feature Might be Dispiriting

A Smartphone or probably some other device would be dead with its Operating system as it is the heart of a particular gadget. OS kick-off with its functioning right after a device gets switched on and then the icons of the apps which are downloaded on the Smartphone or other device starts appearing on display. And even the access to the apps is given after that. Therefore, a developer always gets extra conscious while working on the operating system.

Whenever we talk about OS there are only four operating systems which come across our thoughts, and that includes iOS, Blackberry, Android and of course Windows. These four are competing with each other to a great extent in the market, but iOS manages to take the cup away most of the times as people hardly come up with any sort of complaint regarding the operating system developed by Apple.

The first OS by the American technology giant was highly overwhelming and optimum, and then the other generations kept winning over the hearts of every user. Even iOS 10 still resides in the good books of critics and users because of the spectacular features which the OS was bearing. The photos section of the iPhones was changed totally with the introduction of iOS 10 because people got exposed to a really cool feature.

The user just had to choose some of the pictures on his/her phone and then just make a photo story out of it. With beautiful background music, each video looked absolutely mesmerizing. One the other hand, the feature related to 3D touch was also great and highly amazing, and there was also an upgrade in the lock screen of the iPhones. And even now the next OS in the series, iOS 11 is predicted to sport great and innovative features which would be quite optimum yet again.

Most of the time, Apple has rolled out the new versions of iOS in September, even the iOS 100 got the same month for its release and even the next operating system in the series is predicted to be available for download from this year September. However, a particular speculation associated with the iOS 11 has been raising questions among the avid Apple users.

Reports highlighted that the users could expect a screenshot alert feature to get equipped with the next generation iOS. And it says that the feature will right away send a notification to the person whose text conversation screenshot has been taken by the other person.

This surely sounds a little unusual as many people might not end up liking the screenshot alert feature at all. However, on the brighter side, the avid users might beam with happiness if they get introduced to the group video calling facility in FaceTime as a maximum of them are in dire need of it. Therefore, it would be a huge sigh of relief if the developers actually introduce the facility for iOS 11.

Nevertheless, the forthcoming operating system by OS has the probabilities of emerging as an enormous game changer. I am waiting for iOS 11 beta to release.
