The original PS Vita featured a 5-inch OLED multi-touch capacitive touchscreen, two analog joysticks, and front / shoulder push-button input, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and optional 3G connectivity. Put simply, this handheld game console was ahead of its time, but unfortunately, it did not garner the major third-party developer support required for major success. The console is powered by a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore CPU and a quad-core SGX543MP GPU, making it perfect for just about any game genre. What if Sony released a next-gen version of the Vita with 5G? It might look something like this console. Read more for additional pictures and a bonus video.
