Microsoft's new Xbox One S, boasting HDR support and a 40 per cent smaller volume, is to hit shop s

Microsoft has announced an official launch date for its slimmer Xbox One redesign, the Xbox One S: the 2nd of August.

Not to be confused with Project Scorpio, Microsoft's denied-then-announced Xbox One upgrade with enhanced specifications, the Xbox One S is largely a device shrink than a full redesign.

The major specifications remain unchanged, though the new model does include support for gaming in high-dynamic range HDR mode, video playback in 4K HDR, and boasts a front-facing USB port and IR blaster.

The major feature of the Xbox One S over its predecessor is its size: some 40 per cent smaller in volume than the original, the redesigned console includes an internal power supply for reduced clutter and a choice of 500GB, 1TB, or 2TB of internal storage.

Each model also comes with the latest revision of the Xbox Wireless Controller, packing a new textured grip and Bluetooth support for use with devices running the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
