Sony would have registered a new PS5 model

Sony appears to have registered a new PlayStation 5 model in Japan, as the company received build design certification in April for a CFI-1200 device that uses updated radio equipment. This approval is likely for the PS5, as the Sony console uses a CFI-1XXX model numbering scheme.

Having received certification in April from Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (via VGC), the new hardware is designed to comply with the latest radio and wireless communications equipment standards. This isn’t the first time Sony has modified the PS5 internally, as the first revision reduced the console’s weight and added a thumbscrew to the base stand. This CFI-1102A version also included a smaller heatsink.
