Olympus is rumored to announce PEN E-PL9 mirrorless camera in early 2018, as the new MFT camera registered with the code “IM008” in Russia.
This registration could mean that the upcoming PEN-series shooter will feature bluetooth version 4.1. This is the same wireless module as in the Olympus AIR cell phone.
Usually camera brands register their cameras for Wi-Fi purposes and after this kind of entries official announcement takes place in several weeks period.
Olympus PEN E-PL9 announcement date set for early 2018
The announcement date of the Olympus PEN E-PL9 is unknown at the moment. We think the mirrorless camera might be unveiled in early 2018. This might be at the Consumer Electronics Show CES 2018 which opens its doors in January or the CP+ 2018 event in February.
No detailed specifications or release date information leaked on the web. We do belive that PEN-series cameras have provided great value for the money and the Olympus E-PL9 will continue this trend. This means it would be a stylish and selfie-friendly camera.
