Following on from hints that Fujifilm is set to announce the X200 at CES 2013, the rumour mill has also spilled the beans on an apparent X10 replacement, the Fujifilm X20 compact camera.

Will this be the death of the white orbs that had caused some issues with the X10's 2/3-inch sensor? We sure do hope so, and reckon plenty more will be thinking the very same.

According to the Fujirumors website the X20 will have not only a newly developed 14-megapixel EXR CMOS sensor that bins the lowpass filter much like the X-Pro1's X-Trans CMOS sensor, but it will also feature an updated viewfinder that can display shooting information.

If true, those two points are more significant than they may sound. Indeed the X20 sounds like a more complete and desirable compact than it's predecessor.

Extra information has also surfaced which suggests the X20 will feature a new 24-120mm f/1.8-2.8 lens, 460k-dot LCD screen, continuous shooting up to 10 frames per second and a top sensitivity of ISO 12,800.

Pocket-lint will be on hand at CES 2013, where we anticipate the cameras will be unveiled, to bring the full and concrete news. Sounds like it's shaping up to be a camera-tastic show in addition to the usual flurry of tech.
