I learnt this info from a trusted source:

Canon EOS 6D Mark II will be announced Q1 2016.

24 megapixels

About 1.4x better ISO performance than 6D Classic.

Low-light autofocus (centre point) at -5 EV

Canon engineers test two different AF systems for the 6DII, still nobody knows which one will make it to the final product, both feature more AF points than 6D Classic.

WiFi with NFC and GPS

Wireless battery charging with the Qi standard

Internally Canon switches from VxWorks to an Android-based embedded OS, 6D Mark II will be the first Android-based camera from Canon.

Dual-pixel autofocus technology


Swivel LCD a-la-70D

Anti-flicker a-la-7DII

Will ship in a new box design in gold colour.

Seems unlikely to me. I would expect a proper 5DIII replacement or 1D replacement before the 6D. The 1.4 better ISO seems optimistic as well.

I'll be happy to be wrong, I'd get one barring a 5DIV appearing before then.
