In a post on NeoGAF (originally posted on Weibo), there appears to be more evidence that Microsoft has a second iteration of Xbox One on the way. According to the leaked screenshot and rough translation, the production notes point to Microsoft as beginning the project in 2014 for mass production (MP) beginning in February 2016.

If this leak is legit, that would mean Microsoft’s recent FCC filings for a new hardware version of the Xbox One likely points to a new version of the Xbox One on its way in the near future. A recent WinBeta poll reaffirmed that a majority of gamers would like to see a new version of the Xbox One released.

However, even with the recent rumors of a Xbox One version prototypes being tested to compete with Playstation’s “Neo,” there still has been no official comment on the subject by Microsoft. For now, Xbox fans will have to continue to wait and see if any new version Xbox One version will be released or if Microsoft is waiting to see what Sony has planned.
