The upcoming high-resolution cameras for both DSLR and mirrorless to feature Sony’s new 60MP sensor. Possible candidates for this sensor is the full frame Nikon D860 DSLR and the Nikon Z8 mirrorless cameras.
The Sony IMX455AQR sensor features 60MP, 8k video, and offers native 64 ISO. It’s being said that the Sony 60MP sensor PDAF is supposed to be better than the Multi-CAM 20000 currently used in some Nikon cameras.
The sensor is in its early stages so we expect the Nikon D850 successor to be announced in early 2020. The good thing is that we might see the Nikon Z8 before the Nikon D860 DSLR. So a possibility is that the Nikon high-resolution mirrorless camera could arrive in Q3 or Q4 of 2019.
As a side note we think the upcoming Nikon D6 will use a 24MP full frame image sensor with better AF. See here : Rumored Nikon D6 Specs: 24MP, 4K@60p, IBIS
