According to GamingBoltm, Sony has released a new patent related to an image processing equipment. The report claims that this new patent may be related to the upcoming Sony PS5. The page description of the new patent is basically similar to the function of multi-screen viewing or picture-in-picture. It contains both a main screen and a sub-screen, and the latter can display different content from the former. The information processing device will accept the command of switching operations. It can switch from the mode of accepting the operation of the main screen to the mode of accepting the operation of the sub-screen. After changing to the mode that accepts sub-screen operation, the content of the sub-screen can be highlighted.


Interestingly, this new patent looks a lot like the Snap function of Xbox One. Its essence is to use about one-fifth of the screen to display the content of other applications, such as YouTube/Netflix video or Skype calls. As of now, we do not know if this feature has anything to do with the PlayStation 5. The PS5 has at least five months before it officially hit the shelves. So, I guess we will have to wait to find out if it will come with something like this.

Gizchina News of the week

Talking about the PS5, there is a huge battle to the finish line between Sony and Microsoft for the next generation gaming console. While the Xbox Series X from Microsoft has since given us a clue of what to expect, Sony decided to take its time. A few weeks ago, the Japanese manufacturer finally revealed the design and some PlayStation 5 games. The design of the PS5 seems acceptable, nothing out of the ordinary. However, a recent leak image of this console suggests that the size of this console may be a problem. Well, with the hardware on this new console, the size is expected. Especially because there need to be some sort of compensation for proper heat dissipation.
