New PS5 Model, Features Better Screw and Lighter Weight

Sony PlayStation 5 is a very well-received and unique-looking gaming console launched in November 2020.

There have been some stock availability issues with PS5 since its inception. But it’s so good and supports so many games that fans are ready to wait for it. Anyways, we have some news about a new model of PS5 which you might find interesting.

New PS5 Models

How To Buy A PS5 - Complete Guide

Press Start, an Australian gaming outlet has reported that newer PS5 consoles were shipped to the country last week. These consoles were a bit different from the original models and were lighter as well as more convenient. This new model was also featured in a Japanese gaming magazine and was reported in some stores in the US as well. Following are the major changes that can be identified in the new model.

  • The revised PS5 models include a new screw for the base stands that no longer requires a screwdriver.
  • It was reported that Sony swapped in a new screw with a grip around the top so it can be easily adjusted by hand.
  • The new PS5 models are around 300 grams (0.6 pounds) lighter than the original. It is unknown what parts Sony has chosen to remove to make it lighter, but it’s a nice improvement.
  • These updated PS5s will ship with a CFI-1102A model number, instead of the CFI-1000 of the originally distributed consoles.

What Does It Mean?

  • First of all, the new screw design eliminates the need for a screwdriver, which took some unnecessary extra effort. It’s been made so simple that you can just assemble it using your hands and nothing else. But you still might require a screwdriver for some other things like accessing the optional removable M.2 SSD storage. It will save you some effort though.
  • Next, the weight cut down of 300 grams which are really impressive.  After all, with technology, it’s always “the lighter the better”. Some believe that it must be due to some hardware changes, which is highly doubtful.
  • Others believe that it features a new wireless communication device, which could be possible. This is because earlier, Sony indirectly expressed its interest in releasing a new PS5 model that features a modified wireless module.

Well, whatever the reason might be, it seems like a good update as it fixes the base stand assembling problem, and it is much lighter.
