With the prominent reduction in size, the PS Vita 2000 has a more comfortable feel on the hand, providing optimal comfort to the user. Most of the innards, however, like the Quad Core 2 GHz ARM Cortex A9 CPU, Quad-core PowerVR SGX543MP4+ GPU, and 512 MB of RAM are retained.

Ever wondered what that mysterious port behind the plastic flap on 1000 was for? Well, you can say goodbye to that as Sony finally got rid of it.

While the PS Vita 1000 utilized a 5-inch 960 x 544 pixel OLED display giving more vivid colors and better viewing angles, the PS Vita 2000 decided to replace it with a same sized 220 pixel per inch (ppi) LCD screen which has lower power consumption therefore prolonging the device's battery life.
