I learnt this info from a trusted source:

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

24 megapixels

Sounds right. 5D4 will have a little more.

About 1.4x better ISO performance than 6D Classic.

That would be amazing.

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

Given.

Wireless battery charging with the Qi standard

Interesting.

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

What are the advantages/disadvantages between VxWorks vs Android?

Dual-pixel autofocus technology

Touchscreen

Swivel LCD a-la-70D

That would be huge for many.

Anti-flicker a-la-7DII

Will ship in a new box design in gold colour.

This last piece is making me think the info could be genuine.
