Microsoft Xbox Series S Official announcement key specs price official launch date

While much of the details of the Xbox Series X is already known, we still don’t know much about the Series S. However, Microsoft has broken the silence by revealing the price and key features of the Xbox Series S. Let’s check out all the details, expected price in Nepal and availability of Xbox Series S.

Microsoft Xbox Series S Overview

Design

Microsoft has also revealed the look and design of the Xbox Series via a poster. The poster was made public by Xbox’s official Twitter handle. The company has opted for an all-white body with a circular black grill, kinda resembling a vintage speaker. One can also notice tiny openings covering the top of the Xbox. On the side, there is a Type-A USB Port alongside a circular port/opening. There is no optical drive on this console, so the Series S is going to be all-digital as confirmed by its official trailer. Microsoft is claiming it to be the smallest Xbox ever. In fact, it is 60% smaller than the Xbox Series X.

Features

Xbox Series S will feature a custom 512GB NVMe SSD powered by Xbox Velocity Architecture. One of the most riveting features of the Xbox Series X was Microsoft’s new “DirectStorage” API which utilized the operating speeds of the NVMe drive for massively reduced latency in loading up new games, or resuming the old save states; therefore giving birth to feature like “Quick Resume”. And to see that come with a $299 console is exciting, to say the least.
