But it’s not sure if it will be on the retail versions.
We already got a peek at Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox Series X console a couple of months back, and while the company is still tight-lipped about other details, images of what seems to be the back of the console have been circulated online.
The images now show the rear of the Xbox Series X prototype which can give us an idea of what the available ports will be on the new console. Aside from the USB-A port at the front, there are also two more USB-A ports at the back along with Ethernet, HDMI and optical audio. It was said that the long rectangular port won’t be on the final version of the console since it is only used for diagnostic reporting.

While it isn’t final, there’s a good chance that Microsoft might retain these same ports and probably add some more. Some users were hoping for a DisplayPort connection which could easily make it compatible with newer TVs that feature higher refresh rates, but I guess we’ll only get to know about that once Microsoft officially rolls out the details.
Microsoft’s Xbox Series X is scheduled to release at the end of this year.
