New Epson XP-970 and XP-8600: stealth printers
1

Following the low-key announcements of the Epson P7570 and P9570, and the non-announcements in the U.S. of the Canon Pro-2100, Pro-4100, and Pro-6100, it has come to my attention that Epson has replaced its two photo-oriented all-in-one printer devices: the larger XP-960 with the XP-970, and the smaller XP-8500 with the XP-8600. For example, here is the announcement from Epson Ireland:

Both models use 6 colors (CcMmYK) of Claria HD dye ink. The XP-970 prints up to 11x17 inches / A3. See:

and

The XP-8600 is the letter-size / A4 version:

Interestingly, the XP-970 and XP-8600, as well as the current XP-8500 and XP-15000 printer-only, appear to have a user-replaceable waste ink tank instead of non-replaceable pads; see, e.g., https://www.epson.de/en/products/consumables/ink/xp-970-xp-6000-series-xp-8500-series-xp-15000-maintenance-box-c13t366100.
