Foxconn Employee Reveals PS4 Neo Sketch Showing Design Similar To PS4
Hot on the reports of a PS4 Slim console, a Foxconn employee has created a PS4 Neo sketch and shared it with the world. While there hasn’t been any official confirmation, it is pretty much confirmed that Sony is making the new console with the help of Foxconn and perhaps that is where this design comes from.
Judging from the PS4 Neo sketch, the upcoming console will retain some of the design choices of PS4 while incorporating some from PS2, such as the “grooves” on the sides.
According to the source that leaked this sketch, there are currently around five to six thousands of these machines in development. The source also reports, something that isn’t too evident from the PS4 Neo sketch, is that the new console is thicker and heavier than the original PS4.
The worker also mentioned about a “PS Plus-like device” being in production which might end up being the long rumored next-generation PS Vita.
Foxconn employees have a history of accurately predicting and revealing such hardware news when it comes to Sony’s consoles. Back in June, one such employee drew out a rough draft of a new PS4 which recently turned out to be the new PS4 Slim model.
The employee who shared this PS4 Neo sketch was unable to acquire any information about its internal components to determine what kind of power this new console packs. However, they have said that they will continue to “probe” for any information they can find on the specifications.
Sony is expected to officially unveil the new console during an event in New York on September 7th but if some information regarding the specification, especially the GPU of the PS4 Neo, which is rumored to be a Polaris based one, can get leaked beforehand, the hype for the new console will be off the charts.
The only information, unconfirmed, regarding PS4 Neo’s specifications known right now is that it will feature a 2.1GHz 8-core Jaguar CPU, 8GB GDDR5 RAM at 218GB/s and a GPU possibly based on AMD’s latest Polaris architecture.
