Do these leaked pics show Microsoft's new Xbox Elite controller?

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

Sources report to The Verge that the controller images are apparently genuine and there's even talk of the updated 2.0 version of the Xbox Elite Controller coming with a carry case that will enable you to charge it on the go, which would be rather useful. The original controller, the one now available, was first introduced back in mid-2015. The rumored alterations are: Windows 10 Bluetooth support, a USB-C port, a built-in battery pack, adjustable thumbstick tension, three-level hair trigger locks, a switch to swap between three preset profiles, longer key travel for the paddles, and new grips that are allegedly more resistant to wearing down. Microsoft filed a patent in December with an adjustable lock design for the thumbsticks, and the images match that exact design, alongside three LEDs that could indicate battery life or the extra profile support.

Alleged photos of the new 2018 Xbox Elite Controller have been published over Chinese website Baidu. Considering Microsoft has a patent for this technology, it is hardly surprising that the new Elite would have this.

Brazil legend Ronaldinho retires from football, says his brother and agent
During his global career, he won three FIFA World Cups: 1958, 1962 and 1970, being the only player ever to do so. The announcement brings a definitive end to the former Brazilian and Barcelona midfielder's celebrated career.

Following the Baidu leak, an image was posted to Reddit depicting the entire controller. Perhaps with this redesign, Microsoft has been able to solve that particular issue.

Overall, it looks like the new Xbox Elite Controller improves upon its 2015 predecessor while keeping most of the same basic features. It details new grip sections, which are Microsoft's response to concerns that the current controller's grip sections wear down easily. We reached out and received the stock reply "Microsoft does not comment on rumor or speculation".
