Has Nikon just registered the Nikon D6?

While we've seen plenty of news from other camera manufacturers this year, Nikon has been mysteriously quiet since their official announcement of the existence of the Nikon D6 (with literally no other information other than that). Since then, the only other details we've been able to glean have been from camera rumor sites, who have been diligently reporting potential leaks.

However, thanks to Nikon registering a new camera with the Taiwan NCC agency, we might finally have more official information. While the camera model is merely titled 'N1823', it's likely to be the Nikon D6. This is because the battery is the 'Nikon EN-EL18c', which has previously been used for the Nikon D4, D4s and D5 cameras.
