Earlier today, Microsoft officially confirmed its cheaper next-gen console, the Xbox Series S and will retail for $299. In another tweet showcasing the official trailer, the company confirmed a November 10 launch date and also showcased some of its specifications.
Microsoft has yet to release pricing for the flagship Xbox Series X nor confirm its launch date, the console is expected to be launched together with the cheaper Series S come November 10th. The Series S is an all-digital console and is nearly 60% smaller than the Series X. In the official trailer video, Microsoft confirmed a 512GB SSD of internal storage which may not be enough considering how large the size of games is these days, it is not clear yet if the storage will be expandable via an expansion slot which is similar to what the Xbox Series X has.
Other specifications are 1440P resolution up to 120fps, 4k streaming media playback, 4k upscaling for games, DirectX Raytracing amongst many more. Microsoft didn’t reveal the full hardware specifications yet.
Microsoft is expected to share more information on its next-gen consoles as the launch draws nearer.
UPDATE: In a first look at the console, The Verge confirms two USB ports, an HDMI 2.1 out, an Ethernet port, the same Xbox storage expansion slot found Xbox Series X, and the usual power port.
