The images show the standard PS5 and the new PS5 Slim side by side. The 30% volume difference is evident, with the old model being significantly larger than the revision.
On the front, the main difference is in the USB input, previously the USB-A standard and now USB-C. At the rear, the air outlet has been simplified, but all connections remain identical.

When does the PS5 Slim launch?
The new edition of the PlayStation 5 does not yet have an official release date, but is expected in November this year in the United States. There is no forecast for the arrival of the console in other countries, including Brazil.
The new model will be available globally and will replace the current version of the PS5. In other words, in the near future, the smaller version should become the new console design standard.
