Background and Identification ¶
Released in August 2016, the Xbox One S is a major revision to the Original Xbox One (released in 2013). This model of Xbox One S is identified by the name Xbox One S on the top right hand corner on the backside of the device.
Notable upgrades include a 40% size reduction, an integrated power supply, and native 4K video output for Blu-Ray playback and online video streaming.
The standard Xbox One S ships in white alongside a redesigned Xbox wireless controller. It features a frontside USB 3.0 port, IR blaster, and controller sync button. Connectivity options are similar to the previous model, however the Kinect port has been replaced by a standard USB 3.0 port.
The Xbox One S, unlike the Xbox One, has holes and dots on one half, and not the diagonal line and slits. The Xbox One S also has a large circle section beneath the holes that is used as the air vent to cool all the internal components.
