Xbox One S comes with a hard drive up  to 2TB of capacity, Bluetooth connectivity, the power supply is incorporated into the chassis, the controller features a new texture to improve grip. This reduction in size is due to new APU from AMD camp, which is manufactured on a smaller lithography, so it consumes less power, generates less heat and that allows Microsoft to reduce the cooling system to be used to maintain temperatures within the optimal levels. The new console also features a built-in IR blaster, front-facing USB port (there are still two on the rear) and does 4K video.

The One S will come in a number of different configurations, starting with the big ole 2TB version, which will appear in August. 1TB and 500GB versions will be arriving a bit later, running $349 and $299, respectively. Users can also buy the vertical stand on its own for $20.
