Nikon D3300 replacement rumored to be announced this year (D3500?)

Nikon-D3500-DSLR-camera-rumors
The Nikon D3300 camera is rumored to be replaced in 2016. I do not have an exact date, but there is a very good chance that the next camera announcement could be the D3500 (or D3400?). The new camera will be compatible with SnapBridge and is expected to have a 24MP sensor - this is all I have for now.

Stay tuned for more information.
