Fujifilm X-T4 will have improved battery life according to new rumor

Update: Fuji Rumors has reported that the new Fujifilm X-T4 will be receiving a brand new battery that we've never seen before. Apparently, Fujifilm has been using the same NP-W126 battery for their Fujifilm X MILC system since 2012. Aside from a minor improvement from the X-T2 to the X-T3 due to a more energy efficient processor, there hasn't been much significant change.

However, that will all change with the release of the Fujifilm X-T4. This completely new battery won't be the NP-W126, nor the GFX NP-T125 battery either. We can only assume that it's been designed specifically for the X-T4 system to give users more efficient batteries. This will come as welcome news to Fujifilm fans, who have been calling for better battery life for years now.
