The Xbox One Phantom White controller first appeared in a leak this week, showing a white version of the Phantom Black controller Microsoft introduced back in August 2018. The Phantom White Special Edition is described as "the optimal blend of luxury and sci-fi, embodying a new slant on technical beauty", and the description goes on from there. From top to bottom, this controller transitions from a high-tech translucent white with gold mechanical components underneath to an opaque matte white. The Wireless Display app offers a variety of latency options to best match the type of content that will be streamed from the PC to the Xbox One, with the lowest latency option being best for games, especially those that require precise, timely inputs. The buttons, triggers, thumb sticks and bumpers are then covered in glossy white with light grey accents.

As it's based on the latest revision, it sports a 3.5mm headphone jack and, importantly, Bluetooth connectivity for gaming on a PC. The Phantom White will be available at retailers worldwide beginning April. 2 for $70 Dollars.
