Sony took the opportunity just before the Inside Xbox livestream and announced the Playstation 5 controller, which is apparently called Dual Sense. In a blog post they tell more about the idea behind it, and among other things, we find out that it has a built-in battery (USB-C, it seems) and that it has haptic feedback and adaptive trigger buttons (L2 / R2).

“DualSense marks a radical departure from our previous controller offerings and captures just how strongly we feel about making a generational leap with PS5. The new controller, along with the many innovative features in PS5, will be transformative for games – continuing our mission at PlayStation to push the boundaries of play, now and in the future. To the PlayStation community, I truly want to thank you for sharing this exciting journey with us as we head toward PS5’s launch in Holiday 2020. We look forward to sharing more information about PS5, including the console design, in the coming months.”
