There’s a suggestion at Canon Watch that Canon will introduce a new DSLR between the current EOS 70D and the Rebel T5i and that it will have an “xxD” model name.
With the recent leaks by Canon that show a new entry level DSLR with NFC, a top LCD and scroll wheel, which are all absent on the current Rebels, there could be some truth to this.
I think it’s more likely we’re going to get a “Super Rebel” like the EOS 60D was when it was launched. The successive EOS 70D gained back the build quality and more premium features that the xxD line of cameras had always had, that were missing from the EOS 60D.
If I was a betting man, I think the leaked camera is indeed the T6i and the xxD name will stay with just the EOS 70D.
