A patent from Sony Interactive shows a new PlayStation controller. Possibly this is the design of the DualShock 5.

The designs from the patent were issued by the Japanese patent office and found by VGC. The controller has not yet been given an official name, but everything indicates that this is the DualShock 5. After all, the images exactly match the rumors.

If these design images are correct, we can assume that the light strip has been removed from the DualShock 4. Furthermore, it can be seen that the shoulder buttons are slightly enlarged, but like the sticks. In addition, it seems that there is a USB port at the bottom of the controller, where the headphone connection used to be.

In a comparison scheme found on ResetEra, we see that the DualShock 5 has a built-in microphone that is located somewhere at the bottom of the controller.

As stated earlier, there is no mention of the fact that this is the DualSchock 5. It is also possible that it is a new version of the DualSchock 4. But with the arrival of the new PlayStation generation, it seems safe to assume that the patent will hit the next generation controller.

In addition, photos of the PS5 devkit were popping up and the release date of the PS5 was communicated by tech giant Sony. However, nothing was released about the controller, until perhaps today.
