(SR3) 3 CMOS sensor Alpha-mount high-res camera to be announced in April?


We know Sony is going to announce a new NEX camera and four new camcorders on early April (probably on April the 4th).

But there should be also a huge surprise…the “Mystery cam”:
Five different new sources sent me info about a “Mystery cam”. The info I did receive are quite incomplete and I need some help from other new/old sources to figure out what the camera is. The only thing I know for sure is that it is not the A77, not a fullframe and not a NEX camera. It sounds like this could be a high-resolution alpha-mount camera (or camcorder). But That’s SR3 only for now.

There was a rumor one month ago about a 3 Cmos sensor camera:
Sony will release a new mirrorless camera with 3  CD (CMOS) sensors. Each of the sensors will be 6MP and the combined ISO will be up to 819 200 (up to 16mp combined image size). The camera will have an α-mount, contrast AF, 1.5x crop factor. It seems that working models are already floating around to selected individuals.” (Source: Photorumors)

All five new sources did gave me info that do support that rumor but with a few minor differences I need to check them before to post them here. But it sounds like Sony prepared an amazing surprise for us!
