It is highly speculated that the tech giant may launch a Sony PS5 Pro, even though there is no official confirmation or evidence to suggest that they are currently working on one. The release of the PS4 Pro in 2016 is a testament to Sony’s ability to enhance their previous console, and the success of the Sony PS5 makes the launch of a more advanced version a likely sales success.
However, just because there isn’t any evidence doesn’t mean that Sony isn’t planning to release a superior model in the future. At present, it is unclear what improvements the PS5 Pro could bring, as the PS5 has not yet supported 8K resolution, and we will have to wait for a smaller console, possibly a PS5 Slim.
Despite the lack of information, speculating about the Sony PS5 Pro is always an interesting topic. In this article, we will delve into the possibility of a Sony PS5 Pro and make some predictions about what it could bring. Who knows maybe the release of Dual Sense Edge is just a sign for the upcoming console.
Sony PS5 Pro is expected to include liquid cooling technology
An interesting piece of information has been revealed about Sony’s upcoming home console, according to the Abhishek Yadav insider citing an anonymous source from the French Phonandroid website. The source claims that Sony will launch a completely new Sony PS5 model as early as April 2023, which is roughly 2.5 years after the launch of the current model in 2020.
The insider confirms that the new model will be a Pro version instead of a Slim variant, which has been previously rumored. If it is indeed a Pro model, we can expect improved performance and a new chip from AMD. However, it is too early to determine the level of power that will be offered.
The source claims that the primary innovation in the Pro version of the Sony PS5 will be in the cooling system, along with improved performance. Currently, the PS5 uses a fan and a liquid metal compound for cooling, which has recently been a source of controversy.
To address this, Sony is reportedly considering using liquid cooling, also known as “water-cooling,” which is commonly found in gaming PCs. This change would result in better heat management and would prevent overheating even if the chip is more powerful. However, it is unclear at this time what changes, if any, will be made to the design of the console. Further information is needed to confirm these claims.
Mark April 2023 on your calendar
The rumored release of a Sony PS5 Pro model is based on an insider source cited by Phonandroid. According to the source, the Pro version is expected to launch in April 2023, featuring improved performance and innovative cooling technology. The new model may feature liquid cooling instead of the current fan and liquid metal compound cooling system. However, there is no official confirmation from Sony on the existence of the PS5 Pro yet.
While Sony may sell off its current Sony PS5 stock before the release of the Pro version, it is uncertain if there will be enough units available to meet demand due to the current shortage of electronic components. The Sony PS5 Pro is expected to be priced higher than the current PS5. Any official announcement from Sony would likely be made through a State-Of-Play event, but there are currently no plans for such an event.
It’s important to take this information with caution as the source remains anonymous and the company could change its plans at any moment. Nevertheless, the source has a track record of being reliable.
Sony PS5 Pro expected price
It is possible that the Sony PS5 Pro could launch at the same price point as the original PS5, given Sony’s previous pricing strategy with the PS4 Pro. However, it’s important to note that the current economic climate is uncertain, and the prices of electronics, including the PS5 Pro, could be affected. Additionally, the PS5 has already experienced a shortage of components, and this could also impact the price of the Sony PS5 Pro if it is released.
To summarize the expected features:
- PS5 Pro is expected to be out by April 2023
- The new console will include an AMD chip with water cooling system
- The price point of the Sony PS5 pro could be the same as the standard PS5
