It looks like the resolution of the sensor in the Canon EOS R3 has been confirmed at 24mp. It looks like EXIF data that made it out of Tokyo Olympics images have made their way to the Canon Rumors Forum.
The EXIF data shows an image size of 6000×4000 pixels, which puts us at 24mp.

On the negative side I like my 5DMkIV and a 30Mp R3 would make it redundant!
