According to the ever-increasing rumors, it seems that Fujifilm could be close to announcing a new flagship camera in the form of the Fujifilm X-T4. Now based on a report from Fuji Rumors, they have heard from a source that come 26th of February, 2020, the company is expected to officially unveil the device.
For those unfamiliar, the X-T4 will be the latest in the X-T series of flagship mirrorless cameras. Its predecessor, the X-T3, was launched back in 2018, meaning that it is about that time when it is due for a refresh. There were initial rumors that suggested that the X-T4 might only launch in the later part of 2020, but it looks like the camera could be coming a lot earlier than expected.
While there is no doubt an appeal for cameras with interchangeable lenses, as it allows photographers to take a wider variety of photos, not everyone is so eager to invest in such an ecosystem or want to lug around several lenses. Some photographers just want to snap photos and move on.
This is where compact cameras come in handy, and Fujifilm’s X100 series is probably one of the more popular options out there today. The lineup as spawned four different models to date and we have heard that a fifth model, the X100V, is in the works, and a report from Fuji Rumors is claiming that the camera could be launching in February 2020.

For example AT&T is only expected to release their update for the phone on the 4th of April, while other carriers will begin pushing out their updates on the 14th of March.
