(L3) Will Panasonic soon announce the new DC-S5?

The Japanese site Nomadly claims to have found a Panasonic document accidentally listening a new unreleased DC-S5 camera. There was no info about the possible specs of the camera.

Panasonic stated multiple times that they are working on a new entry level FF camera. I think it’s highly possible we might get this one in autumn!
