Well, there is no official information on whether Xbox Series S will also get this boost or not. The blog post doesn’t give any hints about the up-gradation of the Xbox Series S yet. Although it can be upgraded to a 4K display, right now it targets 1440p. It is definitely possible that the Series S will also get this incredible treatment in the future soon. It has just started the testing for Xbox Series X, so it makes sense to focus on Series X first before jumping to other consoles.

Meanwhile, Xbox is also testing its Dark Mode feature. Basically, now players will be able to dim the LED light of the wireless controller to improve the night gaming experience. It also comes with an optional blue light to reduce all the strain on the eyes, filtering the screen brightness for late-night gaming sessions with friends.
