First on the list and quite noticeable is the relatively smaller size of the console.
According to the promotional video, the Series S console is nearly 60% smaller than the Xbox series X.
For media streaming, you get up to 4K playback quality.
However, for gaming, you get a 1440p resolution with a 4K upscale on the console.

The Xbox Series X will be sold for $499. Interested shoppers can begin to pre-order for the consoles from the 22nd of this month.
With the Xbox Series S or X, gamers will be able to play games from four whole gaming generations.
Whether it’s an Xbox original, Xbox 360, Xbox One, or next-gen game, it’d run smoothly on these consoles.
Before the announcement, several gamers had expressed concerns about the Series S’s rumoured GPU performance.
Speculations suggested that the Series S was going to on-board a lower GPU compared to the Xbox One.
However, the Xbox team has asserted that the series S performs much better than the Xbox One X.
According to the publication, the Series S console was designed to ensure that gamers could easily carry their consoles along with them whenever they wish.
Sony has performed well in the sleek department over the years.
It’s interesting to see Microsoft begin to look into making its consoles more portable.
