Sony PS5G phone concept is stunning — and the perfect PS Vita successor

Sony doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to its smartphones. That hasn’t stopped it from churning out its Xperia series though, with the Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III being the most recent in the lineup. But what if the company released a device that was part-smartphone, part-handheld console? It might look a little something like this.

Designer Anesthétique Projets has mocked up a concept for the hybrid handheld (via Yanko Design). With dedicated gaming buttons, the handset is geared towards gaming, but is kitted out with features you’d expect to see on a smartphone. The renders don’t answer all of our questions as to how it might work, but as a concept, we love this idea.

As a portable gaming gizmo, the PlayStation phone — or PS5G — doesn’t skimp on features. There’s a D-pad, the PlayStation action buttons, a PS Home button, option buttons, share button, and two analog sticks. To top it off, the concept even includes two sets of shoulder buttons, to fulfil the functionality of the PS5 DualSense controller’s L1/R1 and L2/R2 shoulder bumpers and triggers. There’s no need for extra peripherals to get the PS5G gaming ready; it’s good to go as is.

In terms of smartphone features, it’s a tall, thin device, which is in keeping with Sony’s Xperia range to some degree. It has a generously-sized panel, a five camera array on the rear and dual front-facing cameras. No one wants to compromise on key aspects of a smartphone, like the camera, so the Zeiss branded setup should sit well with the fictional users.
