An unconfirmed leak from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which comes via NeoGAF, suggests we might see a new Xbox One console on shelves as early as this summer.

The FCC's listings refer to a wireless chip and manual that hints at the existence of a new hardware iteration of Microsoft's console. A NeoGAF user even dug up a photo showing the mysterious prototype technology:

The FCC filings also reference a “User Manual 1525” currently hidden by an NDA that expires on June 25, leading some to speculate that the console will be announced during this year's E3.

The leak might mean nothing at all, but if a new version of the Xbox One does indeed exist then it's likely to be a slimmer model akin to the Xbox 360 slim that launched in 2010. The new wireless chip would also indicate that Microsoft are planning to improve upon the networking capabilities of the current model.

Some have suggested that we could see a version of the console that loses the disc drive completely, playing digital-only games. Would you be interested in a new and improved iteration of the existing console?

What features do you want to see in a new Xbox One?
