Well there's the super slim possibility, that the lack of PS4's is due to a new super slim model coming out. How it wouldn't have leaked by now seems impossible, but regardless this is pretty unlikely based on the shortage scenario. Any capacity SNY may have had lined up with TSMC for PS4 7nm APU's would likely be better diverted to PS5 APU's instead.

SNY has no choice but to take the long game into account, and because of that, even if they felt they could profit more off of PS4's right now, they had to make sure not to potentially let XB Series consoles get too much momentum. A weak start to a gen just causes bigger headaches that drags on, and SNY definitely remembers what it was like when they gave XB 360 a year head start. Since the XB Series consoles are proving stronger for MS than both XB1 and XB360, SNY has to keep PS5 at the forefront, even if that means sacrificing future PS4 sales.

Yeah as you said it's pretty much impossible, also PS4 Slim is already so thin, small and light then I can't imagine how small 7nm Super Slim would have been.

If you compare PS1 to the PSOne you'll see it is quite possible to make it a lot smaller =p

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

Maybe something like this? The bottom one would be like PS2 Slim thin.

The middle one looks somewhat believeable. But if they decided to make it they have to make sure it runs as quiet as PS4 Slim from 2016 does.

The top being the slim, which isn't even that much slimmer than the OG. If they wanted to keep the PSU internal it would probably have to be the middle size, which would keep the same look overall as well. TSMC 7nm is pretty darn efficient with Ryzen and Radeon and that's at really high clocks as well. The PS4 clocks are low enough that heat should be a minor concern in a super slim, depending on how much they dared squeeze it.
