Pictures of what appear to be the super slim PS3 have surfaced on Brazilian site Technoblog. The images were sourced from the website of Brazilian regulation agency Anatel.
The new PS3 appears to be smaller in size to the current slim PS3, which was launched in 2009. The site also reports that the new PS3 will be available in 250 GB, 500 GB, and bizarrely, 16 GB models.
While the current PS3 model features a matte finish all over, the new model appears to sport a mix of glossy and striped matte textures.
Reports of a super slim PS3 first surfaced last week when sketches of the device were uncovered via leaked documents from US regulation body, the FCC. That document reported that the new model would be called the CECH-4000, which is in line with the images released by the Brazilian site.
Aside from the smaller form factor, the new PS3 will most likely also be available at a lower price. Sony had announced the current slim and lower priced PS3 at Gamescom in 2009, and it is rumoured that the super slim PS3 will also be unveiled at the German trade show, which kicks on August 15 this year.
