It's been three years since the Xbox One's launch, which means we're due for a console redesign. But rather than give us the same system in a slimmer case, the Xbox One S also features a few tweaks under its stylish hood. The inclusion of 4K is a welcome addition, but what else has changed? We've gathered all the relevant specs right here so you can start planning that next console purchase.
