On August 2, 2016, Microsoft released a refreshed Xbox One model, Xbox One S, which has a streamlined design, support for 4K video playback (including Ultra HD Blu-ray), upscaling of games from 1080p to 4K resolution, as well as HDR10 high-dynamic-range color.
- X8 1.8 GHz
- 12GB DDR3
- 2TB HD
The Xbox One S is available in 500 GB, 1 TB, and “special edition” 2 TB models, which originally retailed at US$279, $299, and $349 respectively.
The Xbox One S was praised for its smaller size, its on-screen visual improvements, and its lack of an external power supply, but its regressions such as the lack of a native Kinect port were noted.
