Leaked Images of PS4: The Stunner

As we all know, Sony will be holding an event on 7th of September regarding the highly anticipated PlayStation4. According to the rumor we saw on the auction site, Sony might  announce another Console that day. However, Sony is expected to announce the update regarding the current PS4 "NEO" at the event.

The new console is expected to come with a much slimmer variant, unlike the PS2 and PS3        which are drastically more bigger. The PS4 slim isn't significantly smaller, since the original PS4 is quite compact.
The PS4 slim design is quite different from the original PS4, The new console has more rounded edges but maintains the steady design of the current model.

Some of the Specs include, mechanical keys for power and eject, with two USB ports. The  power, HDMI, AUX, and Ethernet ports are on the back. However, Sony manage to scrap the optical audio out port for unknown reasons, which means every user must have HDMI Cable to enable the enable digital audio. I don't think this is a wise decision because most people are already used to the usual audio port. The new PS4 slim has 500GB storage also features 4K video support or HDR.
