Canon Powershot G1 X Mark III coming with APS-C sensor? [CW2]

Canon Powershot G1 X Mark III Coming With APS-C Sensor? [CW2]
Powershot G1 X II

Interesting rumor that came in (thanks). May the Canon Powershot G1 X Mark III feature an APS-C sized image sensor? According to our (new) source it will.

The rumor has some chance to be real. Actually, the PowerShot G1 X Mark II (and G1 X Mark I) features an 1.5″ sensor. This sensor is 20% smaller than an APS-C sensor (and around 5.6 times larger than the one found in the Canon PowerShot G16). Since the G1 X Mark III always had a pretty big sensor, tending towards the size of APS-C, the company may well have decided to put an APS-C sensor in the upcoming Powershot G1 X Mark III.

The Powershot G1 X III may be announced in Q1 2017. I think it will still have a 1.5″ sensor, but I can’t leave out the possibility of an APS-C sized sensor. What do you think? Sound off in the comments section.
