PlayStation 5 went on the market on November 19, 2020. More than a year after its launch, both SONY and Microsoft continue to have supply problems.

To see the concept drawings of the new patent: A PlayStation Controller, where a transverse smartphone is located. So Sony seems to work on a PlayStation Controller for mobile devices.
What also shows from the official document: Sony filed the patent already in mid-2020, but the application was recently published (Source: patent scope.wiki.int).
Interestingly, the controller pictured on the images does not seem to be similar to the current danseuse model, which is used for the PS5. Instead, Sony has set the design of the PS4 controller when drafting the patent. The controller seems to have a USB-C or Lightning connector that can be connected directly to the smartphone.

A corresponding controller that transforms the smartphone almost to a novel PlayStation Portable would come exactly. Whether Sony really prevails such ambitions can not be confirmed so far.
