In an amusing turn of events, Microsoft’s Xbox Series S was sitting in plain sight months before its official reveal.
Microsoft’s official Twitter account recently tweeted that Phil Spencer, the company’s head of all things gaming, hid an Xbox Series S on a shelf behind him during three YouTube video interviews back in July.
Fun fact: Xbox Series S is so small @XboxP3 had it sitting on his bookshelf back on July 1 and nobody noticed. 😏

Instead of targeting 4K 60fps gaming like the more powerful Series X, the Series S aims to offer 1080p and 1440p gaming. Both the Series S and Series X feature the same CPU, though the former console runs at a lower 3.4Ghz clock speed compared to the more powerful console’s 3.8Ghz.
Further, the Series S’ GPU features 4 teraflops of power, while the Series X comes in at 12.15 teraflops.
