Microsoft has announced the Xbox One S - a slimmer variant of its Xbox One console.

As shown at the company's E3 2016 media briefing, the Xbox One S is 40% smaller than the traditional Xbox One console and features a number of tweaks for improved performance. The Xbox One S ships with a 2TB internal hard drive and has the ability to output videos at 4K resolution - a first for any Xbox console. This is complemented by HDR gaming and a new, Bluetooth controller.

Other improvements include an altered disc drive for the console to stand vertically, integrated power supply to match the console's super-sleek aesthetic.
