Dslr / mirrorless under 1000$ for family events and video

Hi, I need to purchase a new camera. But I'm unable to choose the right one. Sorry for the long post.

Earlier, I had Sony A58 dslr, which I used it for almost 2 years, but I've sold it off since it restricted me on a lot of things and lense availability was bad here.

My main usage is for family events, portraits, travel photography( family trips).
In addition to that, we shot few short films using a rented canon 700d & nikon d5300 and the quality was decent. So we need our new camera to do something better than these.

My prerequisites on this camera would be:
1. Vari angle flip screen (to record for YouTube)
2. Touchscreen, since it felt easy for other ppl in our family who didn't have experience with a dslr.
3. ‎Internal mic jack
4. Good lense availability (usually we can easily rent canon /nikon lenses in our city due to large scale availability).
5. ‎Wi-fi
6. ‎Optionally, 4k video capability, if it's possible in this budget.

My budget is < $1000.

I have figured few options which come in this range, like Nikon D5600, Canon 800D, Nikon D7200 (sacrificing touch screen and flip screen, but it's great), Sony A6300 (not many lense options though and heard it has rolling shutter probs).

Also, cannot prefer a used one.

So let me know if i have a good option for this budget based on those prerequisites. Also, is it good to buy now or do i need to wait few months for new cameras to get released?
