Canon will probably refresh its compact cameras at the upcoming CES 2019 event in the beginning of January. The most likely products to be announced are the PowerShot G7 X Mark III and PowerShot G9 X Mark III.
Both cameras were rumored but Canon has different plans for Photokina 2018 and unveiled the company’s first full frame mirrorless camera; the Canon EOS R. So looks like plans for these premium compact cameras are postponed for early 2019.
According to the previous Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III specifications, the camera will feature a 24-megapixel 1-inch type sensor with 10fps burst. It will be powered by DIGIC 8 processor and record 4K movies @30fps. It will have 4K video recording, DPAF with slightly longer zoom range. More details about the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III & G9 X Mark III cameras can be found below.

In 2018, only one “G” series camera was planned to arrive and we are constantly making suggestions to see if the PowerShot G7 X Mark III will take the place of a new “G” series camera.
Now both Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III & G9 X Mark III cameras will take place in early 2019 around CES 2019 event.
