Although Microsoft is expected to announce a slimmer version of Xbox One during the E3, new images leaked onto the web unveiling design, tech specs, and official name of the new console ahead of the official launch.

It’s called “Xbox One S” and according to a screenshot from a Microsoft site, it’s 40 percent smaller than the current console. It features a 2TB internal hard drive, 4K Ultra HD video playback support, high dynamic range (HDR), and a new streamlined white controller.

The Xbox One S is a white console with a black base, and perhaps one of the most interesting cosmetic feature is the additional black base to stand the new slim console vertically, meaning that the console won’t have to sit horizontally anymore.

Then there is a second image posted by Ekim at NeoGaf that showcases the new Xbox One S sitting vertically using the optional stand. Ekim also claims that power supply comes built inside of the Xbox One S, rather than having a power brick like in the current version of the game console.

At this moment there is no much information, we’re just hours away from the Xbox E3 Briefing, and we’re expecting the company to share more details about the new Xbox One S and other big announcements.
