Leica fans have long been waiting for a successor to the original Leica Q. It has been almost four years since that camera was launched so it’s about time that a successor hit shelves. That’s likely going to happen on March 6th and ahead of the new camera’s announcement, the Leica Q2 has now leaked online.

The leaked Leica Q2 pictures show that it’s going to have largely the same design as its predecessor with some cosmetic changes which include a new Q2 logo. The pictures do back up rumors that the new Leica camera is going to have waterproofing of some sort. Since there aren’t any major design changes, much of what’s new will be under the hood.

There’s going to be a significant jump in resolution from 24 megapixel to a 47 megapixel sensor. The camera will reportedly pick up 4K video recording support. Leica hasn’t confirmed any of this right now and the leaked images don’t reveal much other than the cosmetic changes.

These expected improvements are well within the realm of possibility and it’s quite likely that they will be made official come March 6th. That’s when Leica is rumored to make an official announcement for the Leica Q2 camera.
