Microsoft has unveiled the "Phantom Magenta" Xbox One controller, the latest limited-time colorway headed to the wireless gamepad. The third entry in its special edition Phantom design series adopts a dark pink outer shell, retaining the signature translucent gradient and exposed internals. That couples with similarly-toned buttons and thumbsticks, making for a regal spin on the stock peripheral.

Lock down Phantom Magenta early.
This vibrant Xbox One controller revives a translucent design exposing internals, now paired with a deep magenta finish. With the latest Xbox One features and compatible with Xbox Series X, it's a future-proofed pickup and headed to stores this spring.
In addition to the new magenta-infused controller, Microsoft also revealed a new entry in its camo series. The Arctic Camo controller offers a new take on Microsoft's white camo design, pairing it with a translucent effect that gives a peek at its internals. Microsoft says that Arctic Camo controller will launch exclusively at Walmart and the Microsoft Store in May, and it's available to preorder for $70 starting today (opens in new tab).
As with all modern Xbox One controllers, the Phantom Magenta and Arctic Camo designs feature the standard offering with a streamlined, textured design and onboard Bluetooth capability. And while Xbox Series X lines on the horizon, Microsoft has confirmed all Xbox One controllers will remain compatible with its next-generation hardware, future-proofing your purchase for years to come.
White and grey all the way.

I like these!
But the real question is do they have USB-C?
What for???? They are the most standard USB precisely for use first with the console and also with PC. Not a lot of pcs have Type-C. Besides, what would be the gain, other than easier plugging? A game controller doesn't need higher transference nor better power delivery.
Because it's 2020 and micro-USB should have been completely replaced years ago. My Xbox controllers are the only thing I own that uses micro-USB, everything else is USB-C or USB-A. It's nice only having to have one kind of cable.
