I initially did not post this online, but after receiving some additional info I can now confirm with a 99% probability only the name “D800? and the sensor size of 36MP.

An announcement is expected by the end of this year, perhaps as early as November. A release date isn’t known just yet, but if the announcement is soon then expect it to arrive before Christmas.
