First detailed Panasonic LX200 specs has been leaked on the web which will be the replacement for the current LX100 model.
According to recent talks, Panasonic is working on a new Micro Four Thirds camera. The Panasonic LX200 specs list is expected to include several improvements like the higher-resolution image sensor.
The LX100 hit the markets back in late 2014 to compete against the Sony RX100 and Canon PowerShot G7 X series digital compact models. From the leaked LX200 specs below the camera will come packed with a flash and a neutral density filter to make the competition stronger.

The upcoming LX200 premium digital compact camera is expected to feature a 20-megapixel Live MOS image sensor made by Sony.
The Panasonic LX100 features a 4/3-inch 16MP High Sensitivity MOS sensor, 4K video recording at 30p, 24-75mm F1.7-F2.8 Leica lens, Live View Finder (LVF) with 2764K-dot equivalent high resolution, high speed burst shooting at 11 fps, and integrated Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity.
The image sensor of the upcoming Panasonic LX200 camera would be the same as in Micro Four Thirds format if so we may expect the same 20MP one found on the GX8 model. On the other hand it might be a 1-inch-type sensor, like the one found in the RX100 and G7 X cameras.
