The reference to a new PS5 model in official documents implies that Sony plans to release a hardware review for the console in the near future. It is not known at this point if this is related to the supposed redesign of the PlayStation 5. As reported earlier this month, Taiwanese outlet Digitimes recently claimed that a redesign of the PS5 with a new AMD processor 6nm semi-custom would go into production between Q2 and Q3 2022. Apparently, this new custom processor would be cheaper than the current CPU used in Sony’s next-gen console.

The PlayStation 5 launched worldwide in November of last year. Unfortunately, the console is still hard to find although Sony has promised to increase production in order to satisfy more customers. Still, Sony said the shortages are expected to last until 2022.
“I don’t think demand will calm down this year and although we secure a lot more devices and produce a lot more PlayStation 5 units next year, our supply will not be able to keep up with demand,” explains Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki is said to have secretly told investors.
