Both Leica and Panasonic to announce new L-mount cameras in the next few months

Both Leica and Panasonic are rumored to announce new L-mount cameras in the next few months:

Leica registered a new Type 5404 camera (2023AJ18816, 2023-11-04):

New Leica Type 5404 camera registered in Asia (Leica SL3?)

Panasonic registered a new P2303A camera (2023AP16161, 2023-09-28):

Update: Panasonic now has two registered but not yet announced cameras

The information coming from the Chinese social network Weibo is that some of the parts (for example the wireless module) described in the Leica Type 5404 camera are identical to the Panasonic P2303A. Both cameras are rumored to have a 6oMP sensor similar to the Leica M11/Leica Q3 models. This information makes complete sense: we are getting closer to the official announcement of the Leica SL3 camera:
