What’s Inside the Box:

In case you didn’t notice it, the Series X will ship with a 2.1 HDMI (ultra high speed) cable, while the Series S will come bundled with a 1.4 HDMI (high speed) one. Mind, it’s expected given the Series S is signficantly cheaper than the Series X. For those who don’t know about HDMI, they come in standard, high speed, premium, and ultra. All except the standard support 4K, though only premium and ultra support HDR (and 1.4b newer), with ultra supporting higher speeds and resolution. Its important to note that Microsoft may still be in the process of updating the sheet. This isn’t to say that the Series S doesn’t support HDR as it’s port are 2.1 ready. Also chances are that 1.4 HDMI is of the newer one with HDR support.

Anothet interesting confirmation from the given specs is that both consoles will feature support for dual band wifi, though not for WiFi 6 as many had speculated.

Both consoles will be out this November 10, with pre-orders starting later this month on September 22.
