Released in August 2016, the Xbox One S is a major revision to the Original Xbox One (released in 2013).
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 Connectivity options are similar to the previous model, however, the Kinect port has been replaced by a standard USB 3.0 port.
This model of Xbox One S is identified by the name Xbox One S on the top right-hand corner of the backside of the device. 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.
