The new DualSense controller for the PlayStation 5 consoles include a new haptic motor, an in-built mic, and adaptive triggers. Ahead of the Sony PS5's sale this month, the latest controller's teardown video has surfaced online. The video by TronicsFix also compares the DualSense controller (top) with the Sony PlayStation 4's DualShock 4. Here's how the two devices stack up against each other, explained in photos.
We can see that the DualSense controller uses a bigger battery than its predecessor. The DualSense has a 1,560mAh battery whereas, the DualShock 4 packs a 1,000mAh battery.
We also get a closer look at the built-in microphone on the DualSense, so that you can chat with your friends without needing a headset while playing games on Sony PS5. The mic can be muted with a dedicated button.
There are also more chips on the DualSense controller (top) when compared to the DualShock 4. The analog sticks; however, on both the controllers are exactly the same, as far as the hardware is concerned.
Similarly, the touchpad on the DualSense controller is bigger than the predecessor as pointed out by TronicsFix.
The haptic motors used on the DualSense controller (black) are quite different from the one found on the PS4 controller. It is bigger than the vibration motor found on the DualShock 4.
Lastly, the adaptive triggers on DualSense controller for PS5 are supported by a spiral motor. This motor rotates in order to increase/decrease the tension on the DualSense triggers. TronFix says that the design of the adaptive triggers should help with easy repairability.
