In terms of color, Microsoft remains true to the scheme of its predecessor Xbox One, but some things have changed in structure. The Xbox Series X, like the PS5, skyrockets. The chunky and large design of the console has already caused laughs and made a number of comparisons with refrigerators or other devices.
The reason for the now unwieldy exterior of the home console is due to the high level of performance inside. More power requires more energy and, above all, space for heat dissipation.
In addition to the design of the Xbox Series X, a “mini-version” of the console is expected. This bears the project name Xbox Lockhart or is often referred to as Xbox Series S.
A Microsoft insider has revealed that the Xbox Lockhart should cost half the price of the Xbox Series X. It should also be much smaller in size and design and only be available as a digital version.
A recent tweet from an industry insider also reveals details about the performance and speed of the mini version. Accordingly, it should be just as fast as the Xbox Series X due to the built-in CPU, but come with a weaker GPU and therefore probably not offer full 4K resolution.
The unveiling of the Xbox Series S is due to take place in August, according to other sources. We will inform you when more details about the event to become known.
