Wi-Fi 6 support is definitely a big improvement. As a reminder, the PS4 only supports Wi-Fi 4, while the PS4 Pro supports the Wi-Fi 5 standard. The sixth generation of Wi-Fi is capable of producing a maximum transmission of 9.6 Gbps on various channels. Wi-Fi 4 on the original PlayStation 4 above is about 32 times faster than the standard.

Although Bluetooth 5.2 is the latest version of communication used there, Sony has chosen a slightly older version: Bluetooth 5.1. However, it is still a significant improvement over the older Bluetooth 2.1. It has been found on PS4 and Bluetooth 4.0 PS4 Pro.

Other Leaked Features

The new PlayStation 5 will be available in two versions: a standard model and a digital model. The latter will have a more stylish design, as it will not have a CD reader. The device also includes a dedicated SSD storage.

Sony has already confirmed that the PlayStation 5 includes AMD hardware with Gen2 CPUs and Navi GPUs. It will be paired with ultra-fast PCIe 4.0 SSD and new data transfer architecture. It has also been confirmed that the new DualDisk controller comes with haptic feedback and a built-in microphone.

While the company has not confirmed the release date. Reports suggest that the Sony PS5 may go on sale from November 20.
