The leak comes the way of the official Sony Japan website, and leaks the new CFI-1100B01 model, which weighs 300 grams less than the current all-digital PS5 model. Obviously, something was changed to facilitate this, but it's unclear what this change is or why it's been made.
Below, you can check out the leak for yourself, courtesy of Twitter user Robert Serrano:

At the moment of publishing, Sony and PlayStation haven't commented on this leak and the speculation it has created, and we don't expect this to change for a variety of reasons. However, if it does, if either or both do provide an official comment, or anyone involved with the two, we will be sure to update the story accordingly. In the meantime, take all of this with a grain of salt. While the leak is genuine, it's difficult to know what should and shouldn't be made of this.
