This is our first official look at the console revealing its final design and what seems like no disc drive. The console is dubbed as the smallest Xbox to date but will still offer “next-gen performance”. It comes with a more traditional rectangular design which looks to be inspired by the Xbox One S. There’s also a contrasting black colored air vent.
