  • Photos of what appears to be an Xbox Series X digital-only model have leaked.
  • The tower looks just like a Series X but in white and without a disc drive.
  • It’s possible this refreshed console could launch in the summer for a slightly lower price than the $499 Series X.

PlayStation fans are excited about a PS5 Pro possibly landing this year, but Xbox fans already have two distinct models of Microsoft’s ninth-gen console. The Series X is the “pro” model with all the best specs, while the Series S trims down some specs and removes the disc drive to deliver a more pared-down experience (and lower price).

However, a new rumor suggests Microsoft could smash together the two concepts and release a refreshed version of the Series X without a disc drive and in the Series S’s distinctive white colorway. The source of this rumor is Exputer, but the information has been corroborated by The Verge and other leakers.
