Not a Pi Dev here but don't hold your breath...you will turn blue waiting.
i hope it’s sometime soon
As do we all, but sensible people know that "soon" is a relative term. For the Pi4B (as good a name as any), you have the statement from Eben Upton already quoted. The other thing he said on the subject is 'don't expect the next Pi for two to three years.' That was said around the time of the Pi3B launch in 2016.
The two things that are *reasonably* certain--given recent releases from Broadcom--is that the next Pi SoC will be a 28nm part instead of a 40nm part and the the suggested retail price will be $35. Anything beyond that is speculation. It is also extremely likely that the feature set for the Pi4B is already set, and likely in at least early silicon, even if the release is a year or more away. Therefore any "wish list" items are more properly for the "Pi5B" than the "Pi4B".
As for me, the *only* thing I'm hoping for in a Pi4B is faster I/O. So far as I am concerned, CPU clock, GPU, and physical memory size can remain the same.
In the more general case....it is nearly the end of February, with the annual "birthday" event to follow soon after. It would be consistent for the RPF to announce....something. What such a "something" might be, I don't know, though I do know what I'd kind of like it to be. As already noted, those that know aren't talking, and those that talk, don't know. I fall in the later category....and if I fell in the former category, I wouldn't tell, anyway.
