For all the Xbox freaks, here’s what you need to know if you have that huge question mark on your mind about the release date of the second Xbox or Project Scorpio.

HISTORY

As known to us from the very beginning, Microsoft has created and owned Xbox. Xbox is gaming brand (video gaming) which represents consoles which have been designed by Microsoft itself. At first, it was introduced on November 15 in the year 2011. With the launch of the original Xbox, the console crossed 24 million units in just a month which, precisely on 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. Every gaming guru is perhaps looking forward to the key specs of the upcoming Xbox 2. Well, for that, you need to check this article. Predicting the future and setting the stage, that is what exactly we can do, at least for the time being. According to some speculations, Xbox 2 has some key specs which are mentioned below.

Xbox 2 OR Project Scorpio- KEY SPECS

Combining incredible horsepower with cutting edge design, is Microsoft’s way of building consoles. Here’s the final key specs for GPU/CPU/RAM and memory.

  • Reports say Xbox 2 is expected to have a memory of 12GB GDDR5, 326GB/s bandwidth and 4K UHD Blu-ray optical drive with a GPU of 40 customized compute units clocked at 1172MHz. A CPU of eight custom x86 cores clocked at 2.3GHz is speculated to be designed in Xbox 2.
  • In an interview Phil Spencer said, “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.” Expectations offer us to speculate that Xbox 2 will have different hard drives sizes. With that it will also be provided with merging hard drive technology, specifically to be called as Shingled Magnetic Recording.
  • While Xbox 2 was just a rumor some speculated that it would replace some other device and relying completely on Kinect for controlling the games and would do away with classic controller. However, Microsoft launched an improved and new classic controller for Xbox One. Similar one was designed for Xbox 360.

FIFA 18 Might Include a Number of New Leagues

The ongoing season in the world of football is approaching its end. And the news feed from that section is now slowly getting filled up with transfer news. There have been quite a few in the recent past, and it is more than obvious that it is going to rise in number. Amidst this real-life football, there are updates coming from the virtual world as well, the world of video games that is. And to be very frank, many are expected to turn out to be true once the new edition in the game releases.

FIFA 18 Release Date

We were talking about FIFA 18, and that is quite clear as we were talking about the changes that are going to be brought in the new edition. Before going into the elaborate discussion of the new additions that are going to come in with the unveiling of FIFA 18, we need to take a look at the release date. And it can be safely predicted that it is going to be in the latter half of the month of September this year that we would be able to come across the first looks of the game. For the last three edition Electronic Arts (EA), the developer of the games in the FIFA franchise (in case you are unaware of that) went on the third Tuesday in the month of September to launch the latest edition of the game. So it is believed that there isn’t going to be any exception this around as well.

Now as we finally move on to the changes that are going to take place in FIFA 18, the first thing that comes to our mind is one of the in-game things. And that is the inclusion of a new league in the game. As of now, there are reports that the Chinese Super League is somewhat confirmed to make an appearance in FIFA 18. Among the others, we have the Indian Super League. So that comes as great news for the Indian fans of football. There are also talks going on that the third division league in Germany is also going to be a part of the upcoming version of the game.

Moving on from the new leagues that are going to appear in FIFA 18, we focus on the Journey Mode which has been a big hit among the fans. The general question that has popped up from the fans concerns the return of the Journey Mode. And all those who are worrying about the presence of the Journey Mode in FIFA 18 should be informed that it would be a really gutsy move to remove such a big hit. In fact, it would be too much of a risk on behalf of EA to remove The Journey Mode from FIFA 18. Hence, the fans can stay somewhat assured of the fact that The Journey Mode is going to make a comeback into FIFA 18.

Definitely, there are more questions which are making rounds regarding the inclusions and the exclusions in the game FIFA 18. And it can be said that all these will be answered once the game gets uncovered in the month of September. Till the release date of FIFA 18 you do not have any option other than relying on the leaks and rumors which come up frequently from various reliable sources.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8: When Can We Expect it to be launched?

galaxy note 8

All eyes are struck on Samsung since when they announced that they have started working on their next Galaxy 8 earlier this year.So we are quite sure that the Galaxy Note series is not yet dead after the fiasco with Note 7. The expectations of all the Samsung lovers are already high on Galaxy Note 8, since they believe this time the phone will definitely be superior and most importantly safer from its previous version. There are many rumors already in the market which say this Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is going to be the best phone that Samsung has ever produced till now.

Galaxy Note 7 Fiasco

We all know the battery disaster incident of the previous version of the phone i.e. Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The battery of the phones was getting caught by the fire and eventually burst. Samsung needed to call off all the Note 7 smartphones from the market due to this incident. Even Airports had banned these phones in aircrafts. Samsung had lost billions of rupees due to this debacle. Sales plunged like hell for Samsung, and the company was down and out for a brief period of time.

Also Read: LG V30 may not launch on time-know why here

Samsung, later, mainly blamed the structural integrity of the phone for the mishap. But a lot of others analysts mention that this was not the complete story. Putting a bigger battery in Galaxy Note 7 and try to launch it before the Apple iPhone 7 series were the two main reasons of the disaster.

Galaxy Note 8: Probable Launch Date-IFA 2017

Most of the experts are expecting that the Galaxy Note 8 Release Date is scheduled for IFA-2017 which is all set to take place on 1-6 September 2017. Even IFA Executive Director, Jens Heithecker, himself said in a press conference that he would want to see Galaxy Note 8 in IFA 2017 in Berlin. He said ““My personal perspective is that IFA would be the better place (to unveil the new Note smartphone).”

There is a reason why everybody is expecting the Note 8 in IFA, as Note 1 was first introduced in IFA 2011 followed by the launch Note 2, 3, 4 in the years followed. Only for Note 5 and Note 7, Samsung had a standalone launch between which Note 7 was a disaster. Hence it’s pretty easy to expect that the next Note 8 is going to be introduced in IFA-2017.

Regarding the launch, The Korea Times also said “The big advantage is that we have a lot of media and journalists from all around the world in Berlin. It is not possible to bring them all together in other cities wherever it is, in August. That’s our offer.”

Last Word: iPhone 8 vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 8

It is almost certain that Apple is going to launch their next dream phone iPhone 8 in the middle of September 2017. So once Samsung launches their next big project Galaxy Note 8 in the first week of September 2017, it would be a great thing to see who wins the customer trust at last. It will be an interesting battle to see who wins the last laugh-Samsung or Apple.

LG V30 may not launch on time-know why here

lg v30

The Korean giant LG will look to continue its triumphant run with the V series of flagship smartphones. With the V20 being lauded in all quarters, the next-generation V30 will consolidate it market to an even greater extent. Reports have now emerged that the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, known in tech jargon as a SoC, will power the new LG V30. The new chip is several times more powerful than its previous iterations. The 835 Soc was first displayed in full public view at the recently concluded Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas only a few weeks ago.

lg v30

The new LG V30 also has one unique feature which will continue to wow audio buffs and even common users. It will feature an ESS-designed 32-bit quad-DAC system which will improve the audio system exponentially. This new feature, in conjunction with the Bang and Olufsen headphones. will make the new LG V30 one to watch out for. The new LG V30 is expected to arrive soon. The Korean giant has sought to change its perception from being a white goods manufacturer to one which manufactures a specialised device like a smartphone. the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor is ample testimony to the fact that LG is dead serious in creating a splash in the high-end smartphone market with the LG V30.

The other features of the new LG V30 are also very interesting.  Unlike the preceding LG V20, the LG V30 will ditch the secondary display which had endeared the V20 to many users. The reason for the decision is not known, also it must be mentioned here that this snippet of news is more rumour than verifiable fact. The new LG V30 is also a competent phone with a  6GB RAM which is coupled with decent, if not overly impressive, internal storage options.The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, although an excellent choice, may prove to be the chink in the armour for the new smartphone as Samsung, the other Korean giant, has exclusive rights over the entire SoC supply until the month of March. This means that only the new Samsung Galaxy S8 devices will come equipped with the new SD 835 processors, although LG too may look to power some of its own V-series devices with underclocked variants of the same chipset.

This is precisely the reason why we believe that the new LG V30 may be delayed. Considering the fact that the average lifecycle of the V-series smartphone is one year, we were well within our rights in estimating a September or October 2017 release. However, with the fate of the new chipset hanging in the balance, this might well get delayed by some time. Interestingly, yesterday Samsung announced that it would soon launch the Exynos 9 series processors. Whether or not it will power the new Galaxy S8 is something only time will tell. The new LG V30 would do good if it followed the example set by Xiaomi, with its indigenous Pinecone processor or even Apple with its own Fusion Chip or the A10. The LG v30 is compatible with all the best selfie sticks.

LG has already labeled their device revolutionary and it might just be on so many levels.

The home-button embedded fingerprint scanner is slated to be replaced by one on the multi-touch screen. Also, a second fingerprint scanner will be present on the rear panel of the device. LG’s attention to detail and design for the LG G6 goes further in depth as the new device is touted to feature a glass and metal body making it slightly slimmer though all the more delicate.

The new processor from the chipset manufacturer guarantees a 20 percent ramp up in speed and performance at the minimum also offering Qualcomm’s Quickcharge 4.0 battery retaining capacity which is twice as efficient and optimum as Quickcharge 3.0 making the new processor miles more powerful than its earlier variant.
