Kinect 4 Windows 2 comes with a breakout box which basically converts from a custom power supply plug with 12V and 5V & a standard USB3 B-style socket to the proprietary Kinect connector. Currently, it seems like the Kinect 4 Windows 2 itself is identical to the Kinect One from the Xbox, whose internals are already extensively covered at iFixit:

3: D- (USB2), white

4: GND

5: 12V (from PSU), brown

6: GND

7: GND

8: Unknown (probably debug signal), white/black -- goes together with pin 1 (5v) providing differential signaling; Leave it not connected

10: StdA_SSRX- (USB3), purple

11: GND
