New Xbox One S unboxing

Microsoft’s new Xbox One S unboxing (video)

Get a closer look at the Xbox One S in the first unboxing video by Xbox's Larry Hryb and Carl Ledbetter.

Microsoft unveiled the new Xbox One S during the E3 2016 game conference. The new console is 40 percent smaller than the current version with a completely new design. It also includes support for 4K video playback, up to 2TB of internal storage, and support for HDR for content and games.

At the “YouTube Live at E3 2016” show, Microsoft Xbox’s Larry Hryb and Carl Ledbetter exclusively made the first unboxing of the Xbox One S.

The video highlights a lot details we didn’t see during the Xbox E3 Briefing, including a closer look at the back panel and all the new ports. We now also know that the power button is a physical button, there is IR Blaster sensor built into the console, and you can now plug USB flash drives at the front.

Carl Ledbetter also points out that the console’s chassis is a unibody design, which allows the console to be compact and silent. And more importantly, the new Xbox One S includes the power supply inside the console, which means no more power brick.

Finally, Carl showed that you can easily snap the stand from the side to set the console vertically.

Xbox One S will be available in August on select markets, and you can pre-order the console now from Amazon and Microsoft Store.
