Similarly, the PS5 Pro may have the same design as the PS5, but it will be slightly thicker to accommodate the latest advanced hardware. There are no leaks yet about the design of the PS5 Pro.
Should you buy a PS5 or wait for the PS5 Pro?
It is very difficult to buy PS5 console in India due to limited stocks. PlayStation fans have to wait for the PS5 relaunch every month. However, many potential buyers are unable to get one due to limited stocks that sell out within minutes. The launch of the PS5 Pro will allow Sony to push out additional units of these consoles, which could solve the availability issue.
PS5 Pro release date, specs and price are yet to be officially confirmed. You may have to wait a long time for the console to refresh. However, PS5 prices may drop after the launch of PS5 Pro in India. If you can’t wait for the price drop, you can go ahead and buy the PS5 since both consoles play the same games in better quality on the PS5 Pro. But, if you can afford an expensive 8K TV to experience the PS5 Pro in all its glory, you might want to wait for the upgrade.
