Microsoft Reportedly Working on New Xbox Elite Controller

A new Xbox One Elite Controller could be on the way this year

New leaks show off next-gen Xbox Elite Controller

Images have surfaced on Reddit, as well as Chinese site Baidu, via The Verge, potentially showing an early version of an update to the fan-favorite controller. It was also mentioned that the new controller will have an Apple MagSafe-like charging connector on its back and a built-in non-removable battery. The poster claims that it has a USB-C port for charging, 3-level Hair Trigger Locks, Bluetooth support for Windows 10, and a 3-profile switch. In addition to this, there seemed to be an adjustable tension mechanism for the thumbsticks. Microsoft filed a patent in December with an adjustable lock design for the thumbsticks, and the images match it exactly. Rumors are circulating that Microsoft is revamping the Elite controller for an improved second version.

One of those pictures posted on the internet shows the whole controller with the new designed model with its new features. The battery that was reportedly coming with the next Elite controller was a rechargeable one, but players supposedly wouldn't be able to remove it as most Xbox controllers allow.
