Microsoft introduced its upcoming gaming console, the Xbox Series X in December last year with a rather conventional design, something people had not expected from a gaming console of 2020. Given the boxy design, the Xbox Series X soon became meme content, which led many folks to compare the new Xbox design with a refrigerator, trash cans, sky scrapers, and more. the corporate has, however, taken the criticism very well as the official Xbox Twitter handle shared an image comparing the dimensions of the Xbox Series X with a fridge as an effort to ensure that there's no chance the Xbox Series X are often mistaken for a fridge.

With the post, Microsoft is assuring those that even though it'd seem like a fridge, the Xbox Series X is nowhere close to the size of a true fridge. "Fridge for scale," the Twitter post says, while comparing the size of the Xbox to a fridge. within the tweet, Microsoft has listed the height of the fridge at 1,778mm, as compared to the Xbox Series X's short 301mm height. The width and breadth of the Xbox Series X stands at 151mm only, while the fridge Microsoft has teased is 635mm in width and 762mm in breadth. Hence, the Microsoft Xbox Series X is closer to the other gaming console than it's to a fridge. Though in fact , how this dispels the notion the design seems like a fridge is uncertain.

The new Xbox Series X has been at the centre of many jokes due to its simple boxy design. People on the web have compared the gaming console with not just refrigerators but with skyscrapers, trash cans, PC cabinets, and even things like SpongeBob SquarePants and bazooka among others.

The Xbox Series X is the next generation gaming console from Microsoft, which is slated for a commercial launch somewhere within the season in 2020. the corporate had recently revealed most of the specifications on the Xbox Series X, which revealed the super-fast storage on following Xbox, a 16GB GDDR6 RAM and an octa-core AMD Zen 2 CPU, coupled with a 12 Teraflops RDNA 2-class GPU.

Microsoft is additionally reported to reveal more about the Xbox Series X at its Game Stack Live event scheduled for today and tomorrow. the game Stack Live event will be an online livestream event.

Fortnite's makers may have finally listened to gamers who have been inquiring for improved mobility within the game. the game has finally added helicopters for the players to get around within the map. The helicopters are a part of the game's season theme, spies and will be called 'Choppas'. This comes after gamers had been witnessing helipads shooting up within the game's map every now and then. The 'Choppas' come with Fortnite's v12.20 update, which introduces several other minor changes also , and just rolled out on Tuesday.

The 'Choppas' are helicopters that are big enough to suit an entire squad, according to a report in EuroGamer. The Helicopters in Fortnite aren't armed with any weapons, but players have the option of shooting at opponents from above. The v12.20 update was released on Tuesday, the official Fortnite Status Twitter handle revealed.

'Choppas' may be found on helipads dotted round the Island's secret bases. The helipads started appearing within the map since the beginning of the current Fortnite season. Hence, the addition of these choppers doesn't come as much of a surprise to the gamers.

Now, this is not the first time Epic Games has added an aerial vehicle in Fortnite. Earlier, the developers had added planes during Fortnite's Wintry season. The planes however, didn't receive an honest response from the gamers due to their ability to break structures and deal significant damage with their onboard mini-gun. This time, the corporate has learnt from its past mistakes and let go of any weapons on board the vehicle.

Fortnite has introduced helicopters rather later in its gameplay as other battle royale games like PUBG and therefore the recently launched Call of Duty: Warzone already have helicopters to let gamers move around within the map.

Riding on strong demand for iPhone 11 and other models, Apple logged a huge over 55 percent growth in iPhone shipments for the India market in January and February this year compared to a similar period in 2019, a new report said on Friday.

There was no impact of Novel Coronavirus on supply within the first two months on Apple shipment in India and industry experts are still assessing the full impact.

"Apple iPhone shipments in India grew over 55 percent within the first two months of 2020. Will got to assess March and beyond for full impact of coronavirus," Prabhu Ram, Head-Industry Intelligence Group (IIG), CMR, told IANS.

Apple iPhone 11 and XR continued to contribute the most to the iPhone shipments within the first two months of 2020.

The Cupertino-based iPhone maker has seen a dramatic shift in its fortunes in India since mid-2019, with increased 'Make in India' manufacturing giving the impetus required for iPhones.

"Apart from increased local manufacturing, Apple found favour with customers, with its prudent pricing and refined channel strategies. In 2019, Apple's shipments grew 17 percent (year-on-year), on the rear of the successful iPhone 11, and therefore the iPhone XR," Ram informed.

Apple is taking nascent steps in India market, specifically looking at not just its attractive domestic market but rather as an export hub, shipping iPhones to other markets, including Europe.

To recall, Apple supplier Wistron assembled low-end iPhone SE (now discontinued) and is now assembling iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 at its Bengaluru facility. The highest-selling iPhone XR is now being manufactured at Apple supplier Foxconn's facility in Sriperumbudur, Chennai.

For the year 2019, Apple's India shipments grew by a healthy 17 percent. Local manufacturing, prudent pricing and refined go-to-market strategies helped Apple attain market success.

Meanwhile, the uber-premium smartphone segment (Rs. 1 lakh and above) in India grew 23 percent (year-on-year) in 2019 and Apple which actually created the uber-premium segment in India, contributed 85 percent of the shipments with iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.

Given that the smartphone is an extension of one''s lifestyle, today's affluent consumers, and mostly early tech adopters, are seeking the newest and also the best.

"For instance, Apple iPhone loyalists have embraced the newest iPhone 11 Pro Max," Ram noted.

Thrust on manufacturing high-end iPhones locally along side the first-ever flagship retail store would give Apple a booster within the price-sensitive smartphone market in 2020.

Samsung Galaxy M11, expected to be the follow-up to last year's Galaxy M10, was reportedly spotted on the Taiwan's NCC listing with model number SM-M115F/DSN. The live images of the phone show the rear camera setup and a hole-punch design for the selfie shooter. There are images of the battery also which suggest the Galaxy M11 will have a 5,000mAh battery. The charger and therefore the charging cable also can be seen within the images. The alleged Galaxy M11 variant in the listing features a bluish coloured back panel.

A number of images from the purported NCC listing were shared by MySmartPrice and they hint at a couple of specifications that the Samsung Galaxy M11 might accompany . For starters, the phone features a 3.5mm headphone jack on top, a triple rear camera setup on the rear along with the flash, also as a fingerprint sensor, and what seems like a USB Type-C port. there's also a single speaker grill next to the charging port. the pictures of the battery point towards 15W charging and a capacity of 5,000mAh. one of the pictures of the back of the phone features a sticker thereon that shows the variant has 32GB of storage.

The alleged Samsung Galaxy M11 is placed next to a ruler which tells us the height of the phone is between 160mm and 170mm and width is around 70mm to 80mm. Gadgets 360 was unable to independently verify the listing, thus we urge readers to take the leak with a pinch of salt.

Previous leaks have suggested the Galaxy M11 will run Android 10 out-of-the-box and have single-band 2.4GHz Wi-Fi connectivity. A render of the device recently popped up on a Google Play Console listing showing the front of the phone with a hole-punch display for the design selfie shooter, which is in accordance with the NCC listing. The Google Play Console listing stated the phone will have a screen resolution of 720 x 1560 pixels, a Snapdragon 450 SoC with Adreno 506 GPU and 3GB RAM.

Horizon Zero Dawn is finally coming to PC. Hermen Hulst, Head of Sony's Worldwide Studios wing, revealed in an interview that the critically-acclaimed action RPG by Guerrilla Games is finally making its way to the PC platform on Steam this summer. However, a final release date is yet to be decided for Horizon Zero Dawn's release on PC. Hulst, who was a part of Guerrilla Games himself until recently, noted that Horizon Zero Dawn was a great fit when it involves porting a first-party AAA title to the PC ecosystem.

In an interview with the official PlayStation blog, Hulst made it clear that Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to the PC. “Yes, I can confirm that Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to PC this summer. there'll be more information coming from Guerrilla, from the new studio directors [Michiel van der Leeuw, JB van Beek, and Angie Smets] pretty soon,” Hulst said.

Horizon Zero Dawn crossed the milestone of 10 million copies sold in precisely over two years since its release, and is now one among the best-selling games for the PlayStation 4 platform. While the summer 2020 release on PC is still some time away, the Steam listing of Horizon Zero Dawn's PC port is now live, if that's any consolation for excited fans. But before you're taking the new developments as a symbol that more acclaimed PS4-exclusives like God of War are coming to the PC, there could be some bad news.

Hulst made it clear in his interview that “releasing one first-party AAA title to PC doesn't necessarily mean that each game now will come to PC.” In his own words, Horizon Zero Dawn was just a great fit for porting over from the PlayStation 4 to PC, emphasising that the corporate remains 100% committed to dedicated hardware. Nonetheless, it's definitely a move within the right direction, especially for PC gamers who don't want to jump the console bandwagon and are left looking for console-exclusive AAA titles.
