Is a Canon EOS R7 Mark II coming this year with a stacked sensor?

While all eyes are on CP+ 2024 for signs of the anticipated R1 and R5 Mark II, it sounds like later in the year we might be getting a successor to the Canon EOS R7 – at least, if the grapevine is to be believed.

My first reaction was that this sounded too soon; the original R7 was only launched in 2022, after all. Canon used to allow years and years of breathing room before replacing a model, so it seems incredibly quick for a Canon EOS R7 Mark II to be released.
