Vintage King, a US-based music gear retailer, has seemingly jumped the gun and published details on their website detailing the upcoming announcement of the next generation of Maschine hardware from Native Instruments.

It's bascially a Maschine MK3 with sampling, recording, Ableton Link, Wifi, etc capabilities, is completely standalone if you want it to be and comes with a 64GB SD card for users to add and save their own sounds and projects.
