Sneaky sneaky. Someone appears to have unboxed an Xbox One S unit over in…well, Norway. (Thanks, GeeksULTD). You can check out the unboxing video below. Because you’re really not meant to break embargos, the Xbox One S unit here doesn’t appear to support 4K content out of the box, requiring a software update.
The uploader got his hands on the 2TB version of the Xbox One S. As promised my Microsoft, the new(ish) console has a much smaller footprint, and in the picture the uploader tweeted, it appears to fit very nicely in his TV cabinet. kurbo76, the owner of the Xbox One S unit, spoke about his console to GeeksULTD. This is what he had to say:
“There was no option for 4K. We had to do about a 4.5 gig update when it first powered on. We checked the display settings and it said 1080p. We changed HDMI cables and changed HDMI ports on the tv and nothing fixed the issue. Still won’t do 4K.”
What’s your take on the Xbox One S? Live in an obscure country where they deliver hardware a month early? Let us know so we can buy it off you! Just kidding.
