Sony and Microsoft with the latest iterations of their gaming consoles have been focused on providing support for 4K resolution. In a step forward, Microsoft’s Xbox One S and One X both will soon start supporting 1440p (QHD) display resolution. The feature will first make its way to the users who are enrolled in the Xbox Preview Program. After which it will slowly be rolled out to others.

To make this possible the company will make use of the supersampling technology which is already available for displays with a resolution of 1080p. Supersampling provides users with a much more clearer image with smoother edges and shadows.

Microsoft during the launch of Xbox One X promised that they would be bringing support for 1440p displays soon. However, they didn’t provide a timeframe for the release. The announcement was made by Kevin Gammill, Program manager for Microsoft’s Xbox Platform Partner Group on Twitter.

As of now, there is no exact date when Microsoft will start rolling out the feature to its users. In the Twitter post, Gammill said that users in the preview program will get it soon, which if you ask me, can range from hours to months in case of Microsoft.
