Update (Thu 7th May, 2020 18:45 BST): Xbox Series X partner director of program management Jason Ronald has confirmed that this is indeed the Xbox Series X start-up sequence. Speaking in an interview with Eurogamer, he responded to a suggestion that it was more "chill" than the Xbox One boot screen:
"It's kind of funny you say chill! The word we used as we were developing it was elegant... premium. It's always an interesting part, because this is a new console generation. I love it. I've obviously been looking at it for quite a long time. It feels great when I turn on my Xbox Series X, and I actually get that moment."
Original Story (Tue 5th May, 2020 14:37 BST): Microsoft has posted a teaser video on YouTube for its upcoming Xbox Series X first-look gameplay event on Thursday, and it includes an intriguing animation that would appear to be the boot-up sequence for the Xbox Series X.
You can see it in the video above, which features a glowing Xbox logo and calming chime. If you turn the subtitles on, it actually calls the latter the "new Xbox sound."
