Microsoft has suddenly announced that a new generation of windows is on the way and we think it is going to be Windows 11. Microsoft to launch Windows 11 on June 24. We here will discuss all the features, the pricing, and the leaks.
Name of the Next Windows
Here the name of the next-gen of OS is discussed;
Will Microsoft even call this next upgrade Windows 11?
We have heard many leaks and rumours that Microsoft will likely stick to the name Windows 10 and keep on improving the final version of the product. But, more recently numerous leaks have appeared regarding the naming of the next windows and many of them point to the fact that Windows 11 is around the corner.
Is this the Sun Valley update?
You might have heard the term Sun Valley tossed around for the last few months. That’s the codename for the big UX overhaul that’s coming with Windows 11. It’s not the codename for the OS as a whole though, just the new UX. It’s meant to make the OS more touch-friendly, something that Windows 10 has struggled with. Most likely this update will merge if with Windows 11 if it makes the debut.
A leak in the logo?
ITHouse has found a little leak/easter egg in the new logo that is probably hinting at the next windows being Windows 11. In the new logo, we all see a different shaded streak along the bottom left. If you see the streak is at an angle and upon measuring the angle of that streak they have found that the angle formed on that streak is exactly 11°. Now this may be intentional or it may be just a coincidence but anyhow it’s a huge finding.
New Windows, New Features
New Windows means new features, and that’s what we are going to discuss. While we won’t go too deep into the new features here is an outline. However, if you want to read them in-depth you can read the “this” article.
One thing that Satya Nadella said at the Build keynote is that the new OS will “unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators”. That leads us to a new Microsoft Store. Make no mistake; this is a big part of the update. Other than the App store, other native applications will also get a big redesign overhaul, the whole of Windows will be getting a cleaner and simplified look. Other applications will feel more connected to the UI and feel natural.
A big visual overhaul
This is the big thing that Microsoft is going to show off at its event. Windows 11 is going to be visually different from Windows 10. Because as Windows 10 has had some subtle changes to the design over the years, it hasn’t gotten a whole new look, like the kind of new look we typically get from a new version of Windows.
And yes, there will be rounded corners. Windows has been focused on sharp corners ever since Windows 8, and those squared-off tiles made their way into Windows 10 as well. Windows 11 will follow suit with more modern operating systems like iOS and Android now. There are also new, more colourful icons throughout the operating system. You’ll find these in File Explorer, Device Manager, and pretty much anywhere else. These are available in Windows 10 previews, and they make for a pretty big visual change on their own.
Windows 11 release date
Microsoft has not given an exact release date for Windows 11 but does have a live stream planned for June 24 at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT, & we think it is where they will announce the next-gen of Windows.
Windows 11 Price
We expect Microsoft to follow a similar pricing strategy with Windows 10. Back then, anyone who owned a PC with either Windows 7 or 8 would receive a free upgrade to Windows 10. For PC builders, they would need to buy the operating system separately for $100. We think that with Windows 11, users will be offered a free update as it’s important to get more people on the platform.
If all the leaks & rumours are true then, Microsoft will launch Windows 11 on June 24. We are really excited to see a new version of the OS we use daily. So, what do you guys think? Do you have any expectations with Windows 11 or any problems with the current Windows that you would like to be fixed? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
