The slimmed-down version of the original PS4 launches on September 14, 2016. In addition to the 500GB model which has made its way into the public domain, there’s rumors of PS4 Slim 1tb model. The Slim is considerably smaller than the current model and sports a few aesthetical changes, including rounded corners and a new placement for the eject and power buttons.
