Just the other day, a photo of the upcoming Canon G1 X II was leaked. The camera is said to be the successor of the Canon G1 X and is apparently primed for an announcement on the 12th of February which so happens is a day ahead of CP+ which will be taking place on the 13th of February in Tokyo, Japan. Now thanks to the folks at Digicame-Info, they have managed to get their hands on additional leaked photos of the upcoming camera, although based on what we can see, it looks like the camera is still keeping its G1 X branding with no markings to indicate if this is the Mark II version.
However the fact that the camera appears to have a WiFi sticker on it would suggest that this is not the original G1 X, but rather its successor, although we guess anyone could have easily photoshopped that in. In any case as a quick recap for those wondering about the G1 X II, the camera is said to share similar features to the original G1 X. It will pack a 20.2MP 1.5-inch CMOS sensor and will come with a 24-120mm lens with an aperture of f/2.0-3.9. It will also sport a 3-inch touchscreen LCD display and is said to be slightly slimmer than its predecessor which is admittedly hard to tell from the photos. Either way check back with us on the 12th of February for the details, but until then, take it with a grain of salt.
