Microsoft's new, next-generation mainstream console, Xbox Series S, will be white, disc-less, and cost $299, according to a report. The more powerful Xbox Series X is rumored to cost $499.
Xbox Series S and X
The next-gen Xbox Series S and Series X consoles will replace the current One S and One X consoles. Launch prices will be in-line with their predecessors at $299 and $499, according to Windows Central's sources.
Microsoft has yet to unveil the Xbox Series S but it is as good as confirmed. Even some of Microsoft's Xbox accessory packaging include references to it. The Xbox Series S design has now leaked via Thurrott and a twitter post.
Xbox Series S will be white with a big fan in the middle. It is significantly thinner than Series X and does not appear to have a disc drive either, which should help keep costs down. It will cost $299, according to the reports, and both consoles will launch on November 10, 2020.
Beyond that, Xbox Series S (codename Lockhart) has been rumored to feature a 4 TFlops GPU as opposed to the 12 TFlops GPU in the Series X. It will still be capable of running next-gen games but probably not at 4K resolution and decent frame rates.
Update: Microsoft has unveiled Xbox Series S and confirmed the price.
