Unless they did a body redesign, I assume the built-in flash is gone too?
... but in the 6d, the gps/wifi antennas are where the flash could go, so they are probably mutually exclusive
Things are even worser: the rumors are that the 7DM2 would be with the 2 of the DIGIC 5s.
But you have no idea what has changed from 5 to 6, do you? Most likely it will be changes for some very specialized functions like better video af, the basic design of Canon cpus and the operating system have been the same for the last decade. The digic certainly doesn't fix the sensor.
Just because it's 18 doesn't mean it is the same sensor... This would seem like a worthy successor to the 60D
... on the other hand, if Canon would redesign the sensor except adding phase af pixels they'd surely up the mp count just for marketing purposes. My guess is also on 9 af points :->
Still, if it's got a better noise pattern, a little more dr like on the 6d and no banding this is a very decent camera and re-adds what was cut from the current 60d, probably just what Canon intended to do all along.
