PUBG Mobile may soon be getting a major new addition with a new map to play, as well as a new weapon and vehicle. A new Classic map has appeared in the beta version of the game, and it could make its way to the regular version of the game in the near future. It is called ‘Secretmap' in the beta version but a report suggests that the name of this new map could be ‘Fourex'. This new map was teased by PUBG Mobile on Twitter as well with some postcards showing four different areas of the map.

PUBG Mobile 'Secretmap' details

The new Classic map in PUBG Mobile beta is relatively smaller than an average map like Erangel. The total number of players in this map is also lower than what is allowed in Erangel and Miramar. It comes with some new buildings that have some similarities to the ones in Sanhok, which is another relatively smaller map, as well as some buildings taken from Erangel. The terrain is a little different and includes both snow areas and grassy areas. It also has a drivable Monster truck as a new vehicle, as well as the P90 sub-machine gun. There is also a new shotgun called the SPAS-12.

There are some gameplay changes as well like enemies being automatically marked when you shoot at them. Interestingly, there are some areas with treasure chests but they do not open as of now. Additionally, the new secret map is the first map that has come to the mobile version of the game first.

As per a report by Dotesports, this new secret map could be called ‘Fourex'. It has four main parts that are similar to some areas in Erangel, Miramar, Sanhok, and Vikendi maps. These four areas were previously teased by PUBG Mobile on Twitter in the form of four images of postcards with stamps showing one area each of the new map.

PUBG Mobile is getting a major update on June 1 along with a “mysterious jungle” mode, but that might not include this new map. As of now, there is no information on what the official name of the map will be and when it will come to PUBG Mobile. Also, since the new secret map is in the beta version of the game, it is not the final build and may see changes when it does officially launch.

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.

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.
