A recent leak has been discovered on what ports the Xbox Series X may have. A user on the NeoGAF forums recently uploaded some images to the PS5 and Xbox Series X speculation thread, which shows the front of the console as well as the back, including ports.
“Just show us already!”
Showcasing the front of the console
Showcasing the back of the console. Click the images to enlarge them.
As you can see in the first image, we have a Disc Drive (with Eject Button) and USB port on the front, as well as our Power Button (the Xbox Logo) and a controller Sync button (the small button next to the USB port). The back of the console is what we are most interested in, however. We have a sticker on the back that will contain info on your console (Model Number, Serial Number etc.) Directly below are many ventilation holes to help with Air Flow throughout the console. And finally, the middle. From the top downwards, we have our S/PDIF port for sound along with 2 more USB ports. Next, we have a very strange and very long port. Many people suspect it may be a port for debugging purposes and will more than likely not appear on the retail version. Adjacent to the suspected debugging port is our Ethernet port, with our HDMI and Power ports directly below. What’s surprising is that the Xbox One has a HDMI-in port, whereas the Series X does not. They may add it in the future but, for now, it looks like we may not be getting one.
If you remember when we had that one Nintendo Switch leak which had shown us the console and setup screens, the leaker had not hidden the Barcode number on his console. The person who has created these images hasn’t hidden the Barcode on the back of their console either. It is very likely that Microsoft will track this person down, as Nintendo did when their console was leaked. As of now, this is all we know about this new leak. We will keep you updated as more info about the Xbox Series X comes to light, whether it is leaks or official news.
