As we are getting closer to its introduction, the gossip talks are intensifying and there is little indication that they will stop anytime soon.
Meanwhile, a reliable source is back with some information about a future X-series camera from Fuji, without mentioning whether it is a compact or a mirrorless model.

Fujifilm X-T10 announcement date rumored to occur in May 2015
Different sources are reporting similar things and putting all pieces together leads to the fact that the Fujifilm X-T10 announcement date is very near. Although an exact day is not available, the mirrorless camera is said to be revealed by the end of May 2015.
After its official introduction, the mini-X-T1 will be released on the market in June 2015 for a much smaller price than the one of the first weathersealed X-mount camera
Despite all these gossip talks, it is worth reminding that they are just rumors and that they could turn out to be false, which means that you have to take everything with a pinch of salt.

As stated above, the Fuji X-T10 will be more affordable than the X-T1. This will be reflected in its specifications list. The upcoming device will not be weathersealed like the X-T1 and will have a smaller electronic viewfinder.
However, it will employ the same 16-megapixel APS-C image sensor and a DSLR-like shape. It will become available in two colors, black and silver, and they will be priced identically. It is worth reminding that the Silver Graphite version of the X-T1 is more expensive than the regular Black version of the same camera.
In the wake of these rumors, you can relax for a few weeks, as there is still enough time until Fujifilm unveils the X-T10. Anyway, stay tuned to Camyx for more news and rumors in the meantime!
