We trapped in between Sony A9 or Sony A7III to know which camera actually was registered at Chinese Gov site MIIT, Sony “WW158299“.
But at the same time all the possibilities are heading towards Sony A7 III perhaps be the camera registered with the above mentioned code at that Chinese website. If we turn back to the previous rumor published a couple of days ago, then we can clearly know that Sony A7III will be released in q2 of 2017 (March-June 2017), but the announcement date is yet to confirm. But once again, looking at the release date of Sony A7III we can expect the announcement date will be around February 2017.
Ultimately, Sony A9 would probably be announced in the early months of 2017.
