Not quite all the colours of the rainbow, but it's a start.

The revised hardware dubbed the PS Vita 2000, isn’t too different from the existing Vita design, but there are a few major differences. For instance the 2000 model features an LCD display, in comparison to the original model’s OLED screen, and boasts 1GB worth of internal memory. According to Sony the 2000 model is also 20% thinner and 15% lighter than the PS Vita’s original design, but for the moment the new model hasn’t been confirmed for a Western release.
