Xbox Series X Dashboard Will Reportedly Be the Same as That of Xbox One, But Much Faster

According to some unofficial sources, Xbox Series X will be using the same UI and dashboard in Xbox One with significant improvements in performance.

It’s been over six months since the announcement of Xbox Series X at The Game Awards 2019, and still, there are more to be revealed about Microsoft’s next-gen console. While some footage of the new Microsoft Store has been leaked recently with some big changes compared to the current version of the store, it seems the UI and dashboard of Xbox Series X will be similar to that of Xbox One.

As Tom Warren, senior editor of The Verge, claims on his new tweet, Xbox Series X will be using the same UI and dashboard that is currently available on Xbox One. According to Warren, there will be some minor changes to add the new console’s unique features to the current design, but generally, don’t expect a big revolution in how the new UI will look like. That said, thanks to the addition of SSDs and Xbox Series X’s powerful hardware, the next-gen version of the current UI and dashboard could be significantly faster.

While Tom Warren believes that the changes will be minor, Jez Cordon from Windows Central claims that the dashboard will be redesigned to look similar to the new Xbox Store. Probably, we won’t have a better understanding of those changes unless we see them ourselves in action.

Xbox Series X is slated to launch in Holiday 2020 and Microsoft will be holding a new event in July to reveal the first-party titles coming to the new console. If the rumors turn out to be true, Microsoft will probably unveil a low-spec version of its next-gen console which is assumed to be called Xbox Series S. The price tag for both devices could also be revealed during July’s event, though some believe that Microsoft wouldn’t reveal the price for its next-gen platforms unless Sony sets the price for PS5 consoles first.
