It will be competing against Sony RX10 and Panasonic FZ1000. Both have 1" sensor, and are highly acclaimed. Canon has some big shoes to fill.

It translates more as "Big zoom" as in more range.

Not just that. From Canon Hong Kong:
http://www.canon.com.hk/en/corporate/press_release/pressReleaseDetails.do?prmid=10951

"Canon is developing a new premium digital compact camera that combines the merits of both large image sensor and high-magnification optical zoom lens in response to the demands from users looking for high quality high zoom performance. Offering both convenience from a compact body and excellent super telephoto performance, this camera is perfect for everyday or travel shooting in high quality."

The Dutch site further reads:

De evolutie van het assortiment

Canon doet er alles aan om eersteklas beeldkwaliteit en bediening in een compacte behuizing te bieden.
Het nieuwe model in het Expert Compact-assortiment combineert een grote sensor en krachtige zoom voor uitmuntende foto's van veraf.

Which translates into English like (Edits based on suggestions of MSatter. Thanks I tried to inter-twine your comments in the edits below:

The evolution of the line-up
Canon is driven doing it's utmost to combine and offer first-class image quality and handling in a compact housing. The newest model in the Premium Compact line up combines a large sensor and powerful zoom for excellent photos from afar distance.

At the end of the video it reads (as Dutch is not thát hard to read at all): Large Zoom, Later Model

--------
A little edit after a good comment of MSatter.
@msatter, actually you are right about the translation that it could be done a little more precise. And I like your start of the sentence.
About latest & newest, probably both don’t exactly pin-point what is meant. It really hints for a model to come, so probably best would be ‘the new model’ or even ‘A new model’.

The Dutch words ‘Later Model’ means; it is not here yet, but a model that is in the pipeline. I’m sure natives will know how to translate it exactly, is that also simply ‘Later model’?

You can translate "later model" one on one to English. To me it is strange to use the word "later" because you use that when it already exists and you are speaking in the past tense like there is already an existing model after this one.

My translation:

Canon is driven to deliver the best image quality and handling in a compact housing. The latest model in the Expert Compact-line up combines a big sensor and powerful zoom for outstanding photos from far away.

"large sensor" means ... 1"
big zoom ... 10x or more
= RX10 / FZ1000 competitor. Just like the G7X is an RX100 (II, III) competitor.

Sony innovates. Canon follows ... years later.

Wasn't the G1X the first?

the first what? Oddball-sensored (4:3), too large-bodied, too slow-lensed, too highly priced, tunnel-viewfindered, pseudo compact camera that hardly anyone bought? :p


Had Canon stuck the regular APS-C 18 MP sensor into the G1X back in 01/2012 ... and sold that beast at exactly the same price as the then cheapest Rebel [T3/1100D] with kitlens ... who knows, it might just have been successful and Sony's RX-100 with the smaller 1" sensor might not have become such a huge success. :)

Large model means Dutch. They're the tallest people on earth. And someone good looking. Large. Model. And only available in the Netherlands. Later.

That's a matter of opinion ... don't you think? :)
All the m4/3 cameras are same "oddball-sensored" (4:3) and G1X sensor is even bigger. I'm not a fan of large sensors compact cameras (specially those without a decent EVF), but I think that 4:3 ratio is brilliant for portraits (in vertical position) and you can crop it if you don't like 4:3. Canon shouldn't have included that tunnel-viewfindered and they fixed that mistake in Mark II. Of course, there is big pile of stuff that should be improved. There is no perfect camera.
G1X is too big - RX100 lacks grip
G1X has bigger sensor - RX100 has faster optics
features vs price, looks vs. ergonomics, etc.

I am sure, the 1Gx series is not bad.
But there are strong competitors with unique features out there.
The Fuji X100, s, t
The Sonys RX100, the Mk3 with an EVF
The Lumix LX 100- 4k video.

The 1 5 7 60 70 are fine as a system with their lenses, flashes etc.
But a compact.......no.
