As reported by LetsGoDigital, the leak is of an "unknown electronic device" created by Sony's technical director, Yushiro Ootori. While there's no explanation of what the design actually is, it looks a lot like a gaming console, featuring a V-shaped opening (which could stand for "five" in Roman numerals), several front ports, and disc opening.
Take a look for yourself below.
This design patent was reportedly applied for by Sony at the National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) in Brazil earlier this year, after which the patent was added to the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) and categorized as Class 14.02.
Ootori has previously hosted a teardown session on the PlayStation 4, which was also patented in Brazil last year in the same Class 14.02 category. He is also credited in the design patent for that console.
