Don't know if anyone noticed, but they quietly added a release date on the US Amazon page.
This item will be released on May 22, 2020.
My order still says arriving Jan. 5th 2021, but also lists the release date as May 22nd.
Right on. Came into the bumped thread expecting to be disappointed with a new comment on form factor, and actually got the update I've been desiring for the last year. Mine also says Jan 2021 but I'm sure it'll get updated.
