Those of you with Quad HD displays that own an Xbox One X/One S system should be quite pleased with this recent announcement from Kevin Gammill. He’s the Group Manager for Microsoft’s Xbox Partner Group. Gammill recently sent out a Tweet , teasing that support for 1440p for both Xbox One X and Xbox One S will be coming soon. Those who are a part of the Xbox Insider program (basically user beta-testing) will be the first to experience it.
Many questions recently around the timing of our 1440p support. Those of you in our early preview ring should be pleasantly surprised very soon if you have an Xbox One S or Xbox One X.

Clearly an exact time was not given, but Gammill’s Tweet suggests it’s right around the corner. Sounds good!
If you don’t know what 1440p is, it’s the resolution that sits between 1080p and 4K. 1080p is called ‘Full HD’, 1440p is called ‘Quad HD’ and 2160 (4K) is called ‘Ultra HD’. There are a 2160p gaming monitors out in the wild, so that’s who this feature will appeal to.
Having been introduced to video games at the age of 3 via a Nintendo 64, A.K has grown up in the culture. A fan of simulators and racers, with a soft spot for Nintendo! But, he has a great respect for the entire video game world and enjoys watching it all expand as a whole.
