The next Rebel, apparently coming in Q2 of 2015 will be the first Canon DSLR to use a electronic viewfinder. The camera will also feature the 70D’s 20mp sensor that uses split pixel technology and also feature DIGIC 6 like most of the new cameras. This combination of technologies would raise the bar considerably as far as image quality goes in the Rebel line.
From Canon Japan’s Facebook
Canon Japan is now teasing us with a little promo called “White Kiss”. As you probably know, Rebel level cameras in Japan are called “Kiss”. So this is another sign that Canon will be launching a white Rebel of some kind. We’re not sure if this will be a global product, or just in select countries.

A New EOS?
The following spec list has appeared on the Best Buy web site. These specifications could possibly be placeholder specs, though they appear about as legit as they come.

We’re still going with the EOS 100D name, but that may not be definite.
Pricing for the camera is going to be $799 USD with the EF-S 18-55 IS Kit, though this is unconfirmed.

The Small DSLR
We were told this morning that two new EOS cameras will be announced on March 21/22, 2013. One of them will be the “diminutive” EOS 100D and the other was unnamed by this new source. It was also mentioned that the price of the EOS 100D was “a bit expensive”.
The same source said no 70D was coming this week, and it will be announced later in the spring. This point contradicts the information given by some pretty good sources, though it’s not impossible that things have changed since I first heard good info about the 70D.
