UPDATE: Up until now, we hadn't heard much about the upcoming "retro-inspired" Nikon camera recently. However, Nikon Rumors has recently advised that we could be seeing this new retro Nikon camera appear by "the end of June" – although the site states that it doesn't have an exact date yet.

According to Nikon Rumors, we should be expecting to see an APS-C mirrorless camera that features a retro-inspired design with mechanical dials and an articulating screen. The site also states that it will have a "very thin" camera body and won't feature a handgrip.
