An all-digital Xbox Series X might be released very soon after images of the console appear to have leaked.

Following months of rumours regarding a redesigned Xbox Series X, it seems Microsoft’s revised version of the console has made its way into the wild.

Earlier this year, a reliable leaker claimed Microsoft is planning to launch a white digital-only Xbox Series X in the summer. The report said the console would have some upgraded components, including an improved heatsink, but otherwise it would largely remain the same.

Now the same leaker, eXtas1s, has posted images seemingly of the console which they received from an unnamed source.

While the images themselves are bizarrely low-quality, they clearly show a white Xbox Series X without a disc drive. The pictures also show the back of the console, which has the same ports as the original.

According to the eXputer report, the console is expected to retail at a lower price point than the original Xbox Series X due to the absence of a disc drive. In the UK, the Xbox Series X costs £479.99, but it is available for much cheaper elsewhere.

A revamped ‘adorably all-digital’ version of the Xbox Series X was leaked via internal Microsoft documents last year. The console, codenamed ‘Brooklin’, was planned for 2024 and boasted more internal storage and a new cylindrical design. Shortly after the leak, Microsoft claimed ‘so much has changed’ in regards to the outed plans.

Xbox president Sarah Bond recently confirmed the company will share more news about new hardware later this year.

‘There’s some exciting stuff coming out in hardware that we’re going to share this holiday, and we’re also invested in the next generation roadmap,’ Bond said. ‘And what we’re really focused on there is delivering the largest technical leap you will have ever seen in a hardware generation.’

Microsoft is also rumoured to be developing a Switch-style Xbox handheld device, following several hints from Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer.
