Looks like another wish list turned rumor.

As for a an RX10 II, The 1 inch sensor has not changed much and none have PDAF pxiels to compete with the FZ1000 DFD. IF they increase the focal length the lens will get a lot larger or aperture smaller. Worst of all Sony has a habit of raising prices or keep price points the same (if new features are added especially) so expect another $1300 IF one ever comes which it may not for a while. I doubt they will add 4K soon because they are still trying to sell the AX100 for $2000.

I think if Nikon wants to be competitive the will put the same 1 inch sensor from the V3 in this camera. It has Phase detect and the reports say its pretty fast.

OOh, I forgot about that sensor. IQ is pretty lousy compared to the Sony sensor. I would have no interest and would rather have DFD focusing and superior IQ.

I think the IQ was the older sensors. The photos from LTZ400 always tell me what can be done. I think this sensor is capable of more than most people think.
