We recently reported on a potential Vita redesign that Sony had trademarked in Japan, but further information has since denied these claims. The “(位置商標)” in the title indicates a "positional trademark," meaning only a specified element of the product is being trademarked. The element in question is the face buttons, (square, triangle, circle, and X,) and their positioning on the console. Only these face buttons are solid lines on the trademarked image, as the other, dashed lines are just showing the shape of the console. So, there is no new PS Vita in production, at least not one that Sony wants to unveil yet. Sorry for the previous misinformation.
