The console is more than 30% smaller by volume and 18% lighter than the previous model. However, it has the same specs and features, including backwards compatibility with PS4 games, up to 120fps with 120Hz output for very smooth action with little-to-no motion blur, 4K gaming with HDR picture quality for vibrant and bright colors and darker black levels.
The PS5 Slim features four USB ports (two front USB-C and two back USB-A) for inputs, peripherals and expansion, while it comes with HDMI out and Ethernet ports. Sony bummed up its on-board storage too with 1TB of space instead of 825GB from the last version.

Meanwhile, the PS5 Slim keeps its white look and feel from the original, but now includes a new four-panel design (top two panels are glossy, while the bottom two are matte) that makes it more customizable.
