Microsoft called the One X the “smallest Xbox ever.” By two measurements it is, but barely: The new console is 5mm (0.2 inch) shorter and has a volume of 4,320 cubic centimeters, 90 cubic centimeters less than the Xbox One S.

Here you can see the rear of both units. Ports are identical: one front USB, two rear USB (with Kinect support with adapter); HDMI in and out; S/PDIF digital audio; Ethernet. The best news? Like the One S, the One X has an internal power supply — no Buick-sized power brick like early Xbox models had.

Microsoft appears to be sticking with the same controller. (The controller got a slight update when the One S came out last year.)

The One X will retail for $499 when it’s released on November 7. That’s $100 more than the PS4 Pro, and double the current price of the entry-level Xbox One S.
