When will the Canon M50 replacement be announced?

There has been a lot of discussion on the Canon M50 replacement on dpreview.com and canonrumors.com. Based on Google search data, the Canon M50 continues to sell well and is heavily searched in Google. It is also appearing consistently on Amazon’s best sellers for mirrorless camera category and BCN for retail sales. Any replacement for the Canon M50 seems to be premature at this point for a camera that is selling well in a declining market with added pressures of the COVID pandemic.

There is no doubt that a Canon M50 replacement will arrive, the question is when. Latest Google searches indicate not anytime soon.
