The Canon EOS M5 Mark II (all rumors) might be announced later this year, in October 2020. Along with the EOS M5 Mark II, Canon could also announce an EF-M 52mm f/2 STM lens and an EF-M 18-45mm f/2-4 IS STM lens (a new kit lens I guess). The EOS M5 Mark II should have IBIS and 4K video.
The source also shared some bits about the Canon EOS M60, the replacement for the EOS M50, and a EF-M 100-300mm f/5.6-8mm IS STM lens. Both might be announced in 2021.

Don’t get too excited. We think that most likely this is the upcoming Canon EOS R5.
Nokishita spotted a yet unreleased Canon camera and an accessory as they were registered at a wireless certification authority. The camera accessory has the reference DS586224 and the camera has DS126839. he accessory might be a new flash unit.
It seems Canon is trying to push their mirrorless technology into the hands of professional photographers. The (machine translated) article says:
Canon has decided to launch the EOS R5, a full-size mirrorless camera under development compatible with 8K video shooting, as early as possible before the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics. The support system for equipment rental and maintenance is planned to be the largest ever sport event. For professionals, single-lens reflex cameras are mainly used, but use of mirrorless, which is excellent in quietness and weight reduction, is also progressing. The Tokyo Olympics aims to exceed 70% in the use of news cameras.
The Canon EOS R5 development was announced a few weeks ago. And we are all waiting to see and learn more about what to us seems a game changer in the industry.
2020 started pretty good for Canon. Two important cameras have been announced, the EOS-1d X Mark III and EOS R5 (development announcement). Time to sum up all rumors and see what we can expect next.
We already know that a Canon EOS R6 full frame mirrorless camera is rumored. The EOS R6 is rumored to get announced in May 2020, and a small set of supposed specifications is making its rounds on the web.
Next is the long rumored high resolution EOS R body, supposedly named either EOS R5s or EOS R3 by the Internet folks. Our sources told us this EOS R model might have a sensor resolution of 80MP. Rumored announcement timeframe are the last months of 2020.
There will be new RF lenses in 2020. Canon itself published a RF mount lens roadmap along with the EOS-1D X Mark III announcement. You can see it below. And we think the chart below is missing some lenses.
We think Canon will eventually release some RF lenses not listed in the chart above, but for the time being there is no reliable intel about.
Finally, EOS M lenses might get announced too. And here too so far we do not have reliable information.
