The PS5 Slim will reportedly be just 5cm shorter 

With the PlayStation 5 well into its 3rd year on the market, rumours and leaks have begun to spring up claiming that a PS5 Slim is in the works. Even Microsoft themselves spoke on its existence during the FTC hearings. While yet to be officially announced, a number of details surrounding just how ‘slim’ this new iteration of the console will be have sprung up.

As reported by PlayStation software developer and reverse engineer BwE, the leaker took to Twitter to offer some information on the unannounced console revision, saying “The 2000 series PS5 ‘Slim’ looks a little bit shit.”

Going into details regarding the construction and design of this new model, BwE continued, “I would say it's about 5cm or so shorter, not much thinner. Weird curve in the middle with smaller vents. The BD drive is less curved so it looks weird. Has two ugly black slits on each side of the case. Dual USB-C on the front. Stupid embossed [PlayStation Sacred Symbols] on the rear.”

All these details come from a video of the console which BwE claims to have gotten their hands on. That said, BwE themselves note that this console could be a prototype, and so should be taken with a pinch of salt.

The PlayStation 5’s design has always been rather divisive, and it looks as though the Slim will be no different. We will have to wait until Sony themselves announce this new variant before jumping to conclusions, but it is seemingly safe to say that the PS5 Slim will still be a rather big console.
