Our 2020 rumors were right all along: Sony officially registered the “surprise” (RX?) camera that we told you would be announced soon!
Today Sony officially registered a new camera model with 5.1GHz Wifi (via Nokishita). This means it’s a high end model !!!
Our rumors are therefore confirmed!
We told you on May 15 that Sony plans to launch the A7sII successor and a “surprise” model in June (max early July). And indeed Sony has now registered a total of two camera featuring the 5.1Ghz module:

WW850128 (Sony Digital Products (Wuxi) Co., Ltd, China)
UPDATE: The new High End camera might be an RX model because it has been registered by Sony China?
I got some early whispers about this “surprise” model but I need to dig more into it before I can share something with you. Anyway. it’s going to be an exciting time on SAR and if you don’t follow us on Twitter and Facebook you will be banned from SAR :)
