Following the news that Sony was developing new models for the PS3 and PS4, it has suddenly emerged that the new PS4 model has passed FCC certification. The model in question was “CUH-1115”, the last two digits signifying the region, with the new model including a maximum clock frequency of 2.75 GHz and an ambient operating temperature of 5-35°C.

The size measures 275x53x305 mm and weighs 2.8 kg, which isn’t very different from the current PS4 model. There are some variations with the WLAN and Bluetooth in the new model.

There’s a lot more that can be learned over at the official documentation. It will still be another 6 months before internal photos can be revealed to show off the actual PS4. Does this mean a reveal at, say, Gamescom? That remains to be seen but it’s certainly interesting that Sony would choose to revamp its PS4 when it isn’t even a year old. What are your thoughts? Let us know below.

    Confirms that the launch models POS4 are prone to over heating and red line problems.

      Which they aren’t.

      Confirmed you’re an idiot.

      I’ve had none of these issues.

    A 1TB HDD would be nice

    ME3X12 i guess thinks Xbox is a religion or something.

    Anyways…

    Interestingly it looks like the changes involve the antenna and wifi chip. I’ve read of people having issues with wifi with the ps4. Also it doesn’t look like there are modifications to anything else as the case dimensions, weight and power supply ratings and temp range are are identical.

    Whatever the changes are, I’m having no issues with my launch PS4 so won’t be looking into this model. Not quite sure why Sony feels like they need to make hardware revisions so soon after launch.

  • Jfdelman

    Maybe it’ll be a small hard drive to chop off some cost, and then allow for external hard drive support.

    • Christian Dixon

      That’s more of a software issue than a hardware issue.

    “The size measures 275x53x305 mm and weighs 2.8 kg, which isn’t very different from the current PS4 model.”

    Uhhhhh….what? Are you sure you didn’t misread something there? Those are the measurements for the CURRENT model PS4.

    Also the link to the FCC page doesn’t work.

    This is probably done to fix that wobble issue that was highlighted on release
