Microsoft did not immediately give a release date for the console, but previous leaks have led to speculation it will come out in time for 2020 holiday season (the Series X is confirmed as coming out in November).

The image of the Xbox Series S appears to show it has no disk drive, distinguishing it from the more powerful Xbox Series X.

Xbox revealed the Series X console in December but has yet to confirm a price point for it.
