After the Sony team revealed numerous new details about the PlayStation 5 this week, a picture of the back of the console has now been released. Here, fans can get a glimpse of the various connections that are located on the hardware. These are two additional USB Type-A ports, an Ethernet connection, HDMI 2.1 and the connection for the power cable.
In addition to Bluetooth 5.1, Sony has also installed Wi-Fi 6 and thus the current standard of technology. Compared to its predecessor (Wi-Fi 5), Wi-Fi 6 offers a higher data transfer rate of around 37%. The transmission speed also increases from 1.3 Gbit / s to 11 Gbit / s. Competitor Microsoft will only have Wi-Fi 5 built into the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Microsoft's consoles also lack a USB-C port. On the PS5, this is located on the front of the hardware. Right next to it there is another USB port of the Type-A.
Just recently, Sony also got the dimensions and weight of the PS5 models (buy now ) revealed. The standard version of the console therefore weighs 4.5 kilograms. Only the launch model of the PS3 at the time was a little heavier at 4.9 kilograms. The PS5 will be available in stores on November 19, 2020. The hype around Pre-orders is already huge. The console's launch titles include the remake of Demon's Souls and Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
