The new PlayStation 5 CFI-1200 model features a full internal redesign, a new teardown video confirmed.
Austin Evans managed to get hold of the new PlayStation 5 model, which is currently being sold in Australia, and showcased the differences between the older 1000 and 1100 models and the new one in a new video.

The new design seems more efficient than the previous ones, suggesting that we may be getting closer to a proper Slim redesign.
