Redesigned Paddles for the Xbox One Elite Controller?

Recent images have surfaced on Reddit showing what appears to be redesigned paddles for the critically acclaimed Xbox One Elite Controller.

At first, many brushed aside the controller due to its US $149.00 price, it went on to achieve commercial success and fanfare causing lengthy shortages for months.

The Elite Controller offers various features and customization options for your gaming experiences. One of the features includes attaching up to four removable paddles to the bottom of the Elite Controller and mapping them to any button you like.

However, as some of you may know, it’s very common to tightly grip your controllers during tense gaming moments and mistakenly press the bottom paddles if they are attached.

The Reddit images reveal the redesigned paddles intended to improve comfort for tight grips and side-by-side comparison of the current and supposed redesigned paddles.

What do you think gamers? Is this legit? Is the Elite Controller becoming more elite?
