Rumor: Slimmer PS3 model leaked

New SKU to offer 16, 250, and 500 gig storage options.

Rumor has it Sony is preparing a second PlayStation 3 slim redesign. And Tecnoblog reportedly has first images of the console.

The site references a document from Sony Computer Entertainment America to Sony Brasil mentioning products CECH-4011A, CECH-4011B and CECH-4011C, which according to Tecnoblog, correspond to the slimmer system’s 16, 250, and 500 gigabyte storage options. The current PlayStation 3 slim is the CECH-30XX series.

Further supporting its case are a set of diagrams that appeared on the FCC website last week suggesting a new PlayStation 3 SKU was in the works.

Stay tuned.
