It looks like Sony is getting ready to announce its first 8K mirrorless camera on January 26, 2021. Most people seem to be expecting an Alpha a9 III/flagship mirrorless camera.

Rumoured specifications are still hard to come by at this time, but this announcement has all the feeling of a new flagship camera for Sony.
All that has really been reported is that new camera will shoot 8K30p, have a 50mp full-frame sensor and will be priced around $5000USD. I would expect some overlap of features to the a7s III.
Photo Rumors reported the following specifications last year.
- Bigger and truly pro body
- 9.44M dots EVF
- Newly developed sensor
- 8K video recording with no overheating
- Dual card slots
- New menu systems from A7S3
- IBIS with Steady shot active mode
- Everything about this camera is new
- Price 5,999$
