According to reports, the Xbox Series S may support 1080p or 1440p gaming with four teraflops of GPU performance. It is expected to come with 7.5GB of usable RAM. The announcement tweet did mention that the Xbox Series S will deliver “next-gen performance.” More details are expected to be announced soon.

The Xbox Series S and the Xbox Series X are expected to be released on November 10. The Series S is said to come with a $25 (roughly Rs. 1,800) per month Xbox All Access financing option while the Series X is said to come with a $35 (roughly 2,500) per month plan in the US. The Xbox Series X is also tipped to be priced at $499 (roughly Rs. 36,800).
