PS5 Slim is a new look for the PS5 console. Sony says it will feature “the same technology features that make PS5 the best to play”, only in a more compact machine. In terms of aesthetic differences between PS5 Slim and the PS5 original, we can expect a revamped outer shell. PS5 Slim’s packaging will feature “four separate cover panels, with the top portion in a glossy look, while the bottom remains in matte.” It will also come with 1TB SSD internal storage, just like the original model, though that will even out to just over 800GB of usable storage once essential software has been installed.
