There does not seem to be any hints of Sony attempting another portable system but the PlayStation 5G ANESTHÉTIQUE édition concept needs to happen. Despite just being a digital render, it is a stylish take of what a new PlayStation smartphone should be.

Given the immense success of the PlayStation 5, a portable console might be the last thing on their minds right now. However, it’s not stopping ANESTHÉTIQUE PROJETS from envisioning something astounding.

With a growing interest surrounding gaming smartphones, the PlayStation 5G ANESTHÉTIQUE édition would be a hit among gamers.

The PlayStation 5G ANESTHÉTIQUE édition touts a familiar button layout akin to that of the PlayStation Vita. From what the renders show, it looks a lot like an iPhone with huge bezels that hold the physical buttons and analog sticks.
