According to Fujirumors, Fuji HQ is aware that many are requesting for the X-E3, including myself.
But at this point, it's all speculation.

My guess is an announcement later this summer and release later this fall/winter.

Still baffles me why Fuji released the X-E2S in the first place.

It will never happen. Fuji only now realise they reached the pinnacle of camera technology with the XE-1, and regret having made the XE-2. The next firmware will revert all XE-2's back to XE-1 functionality.
You might just have to go and shoot?

Perhaps so they don't have to release XE3 anytime soon. It might cannibalize XPro2 and XT2 sales.

XT20 with its touch screen seems quite capable camera. Personally would prefer touch anytime over joystick or pad. Haven't seen much interest about it on RFF.

I have no information on an updated XE.

From a practical standpoint, other than an updated sensor and processor, what features would others like to see? For my part, a tilt screen (not necessarily touch) would be nice. If I had my druthers, what I would really, really, really like to see is Fuji's hybrid viewfinder incorporated in an XE-size body. Sort of an X-Pro Lite. Not likely, I'm sure.

I know what it will take for Fuji to release the XE3, it would be me buying the X Pro 2 in frustration.

24MP X-Trans CMOS III sensor and Acros is one thing I would like on the X-E3.
Streamlined one hand operation menu buttons like the X100F is another.
Bonus would be higher magnification, 0.77x instead of the previous 0.64x
