Microsoft confirms QHD rollout for Xbox One S and Xbox One X

The Xbox One S and Xbox One X will soon output native QHD (1440p) on supported monitors.

Kevin Gammill, Program Manager for Microsoft’s Xbox Platform Partner Group, has announced that the firm will introduce support for QHD in the near future – with the feature set to arrive first for those enrolled in the Xbox Preview Progam.

Right now, the Xbox One S and Xbox One X downscale QHD to Full HD, leaving those with a QHD monitor out of luck. But the introduction of support for QHD will allow next-gen console owners to play their favourite title in the 1440p resolution.

There’s no word on when Xbox will start rolling out the feature, though Gammill did note that it will reach customers participating in the Preview Program “very soon” – though that could be anywhere from a couple of weeks to a couple of months.
