When Is The Right Time For The PS5 To Launch?

When Is The Right Time For The PS5 To Launch?

My guess and explanation for it:
A misconception about gaming consoles is that console makers releases a new console when the tech is ready, but instead they release the console when the current gen consoles sales are going every year. Ps4 still sales very well and does not yet have any signs of slowing down. Now talking about ps5, while that I think all of the needed components would be available in 2019, because Sony knows they still can profit from the PS4 in 2019, they would release the ps5 in 2020. In addition, it would mean prices could go down.
Specs for 2020:
Ryzen mobile CPU hopefully 8 core at somewhere between 2~3 GHZ (probably using zen 2 or 3)
16/20GB GDDR6 with 4GB DDR4 for OS (going from the basis that OS takes the same amount of ram as it did before)
12 TF vega/navi gpu (12TF is from an insider that seems to hint at a possible range of 10~14 TF gpu).
Price I hope could reach 399 but I doubt it as ram prices are still high so 499 is still on the table.
