Pictures of a white Xbox One have appeared online, suggesting a lighter hued rendition of the eagerly awaited next-generation console could be announced for retail.
With most flagship smartphones now coming in separate black and white colour schemes, Microsoft looks set to follow suit with its upcoming PS4 rival, as images of a currently unconfirmed white console leak to join the standard black offering set to hit retailers this November.
Surfacing via Reddit, the white Xbox One unit is said to be a dev kit model with no confirmation as to whether a white hued edition will ever make it to market. With the Xbox 360 originally entering the market in white before leading on to black models, a selection of Xbox One colours is not out of the realms of reality.
One of the most hotly anticipated gadgets of the year, the Xbox One was formally announced in the run up to E3 2013, with the 360 follow-on to bring a raft of entertainment features to the gaming device. Set to come bundled with a revised Kinect controller, an Xbox One release date has been set at £429.
Although £80 more expensive than the rival PS4, those eyeing up Xbox One pre-orders can get a marginally improved deal, with at least one retailer offering the console £10 cheaper than its RRP.
While November is as far as the Xbox One release date has been narrowed down to date, it is expected that the finalised arrival time will be formally confirmed during Gamescom next month.
