YI Technology will announce a new MFT camera on Monday

43rumors reader Xavier just sent me this:

A Chinese company called YI Technology is said to announce a new MFT camera on 19th Sept. This company was partnered with the famous Chinese electronics company Xiaomi and announced some good action cams in the past (including one 4K action cam with LED screen recently).
The image attached seems to be the invitation letter for the announcement (collected from Chinese social platform so might not be real). However it clearly indicates an interchangeable lens camera to be announced. Also the sensor would likely be provided by Panasonic from who shared this image.
It seems that we are going to have a budget alternative with great specs (at least on paper as usual for this brand) very soon!
