What ever they've done the D780 is still a second tier camera playing catch up to the D850 and deserves the appropriate comment associated with that level

Actually the D850 is a high resolution camera and the D780 is a standard resolution camera with improved focus area modes, an updated sensor, improved video, better bluetooth and wifi, and a number of other benefits. It's a significant up date to the D750 - essentially a Z6 in a DSLR body with dual cards. The D750 in comparison was an economy model that lacked some of the upper end features - frame rate, buffer depth, etc.

There are a lot of updates needed in a D850 successor based on today's market and competitive landscape.

D750 was 5 years old camera with 5 years old technology so it was updated in 2020  with the D780

Today D850 is only 4 years old so in Nikon universe still a relatively new camera - Nikon normally only update their cameras after 5 years so we would expect a D850 replacement/update in 2022 Covid-19 permitted.
