Now, another source contacted us and told us that the camera specifications listed above refer to the EOS C50, an upcoming Canon Cinema camera with RF mount. We already expected the C50 to get announced with the Canon EOS C70.
As usual, I am thankful for more insights and constructive comments.
Canon is set to announce a new Cinema camera at Canon Vision, the company reveals via press release.
The virtual trade show platform Canon Vision, launching 24th September, will be the set for the announcement of a new Cinema camera. This could be one of rumored Cinema cameras with RF mount. However, along with the press release came the image on top. Likely a teaser.

We can expect some more gear announcement by Canon within 2020.
It seems two different timeframes are to expect for announcements, one in August/September and another one towards November and December. However, to us it seems weird that Canon might announce gear in December, and August is almost over (but still rumored for announcements).
