My skeptical bet would be for some model based on GF9/GX850, but improved for vloggers.

- Panasonic talks about selfies on their Instagram announcement and GF9 was always the one model aimed at selfie shooters (and yes, in Asia girls still goes and buys them for this purpose).

- GF9 is quite basic on controls, but who cares, for selfies and vlogging you just need to use touch screen.

- Fully articulated screen or flip up screen like GF9? Both can be done, depending on the way they will approach external microphone mounting.

- Make it little bit bigger to fit in IBIS and make sure it doesn't overheat like GF9.

- No need for EVF, not useful for selfies and vlogging.

- Headphone jack will be skipped, as Sony did on ZV-1.

- Comes in bundle with 12-32 zoom.

43rumors just posted it will come bundled with 12-32 and cost just 750 USD. And from resolution it seems it will be 20 Mpx sensor.

I'm telling you, it will be just refreshed GF9/GF10. I'm now doubting if it will even have IBIS or if they will just let it work on stabilization in lens.

I too think now would be a good time to make a content/vlog focussed GF/GX camera of that sort, and made a post about it last month.
