As for the promotion graphics, it was leaked on April 22 already, as I reported it already. I previously translated that slogan of the promotion as "- The Successor for the Pride of Renowned Gear -", which it looks as if Pentax/Hoya is quite proud of and confident in the new camera body, i.e., the K-7.
Japanese Impress DC Watch has also reported the news:-
The scheduled times and venues of new product "seminars" are shown in their summary table. The seminars are for free admission and more importantly, it is told that people can try the new K(-7) body! And by that time, we can know more about the new K-7, for sure! - the Japanese media will report it fast enough. So when? The first seminar will be held at the noon of May 23rd at Tokyo. So, we shall know more! They tell, I report! :-D
Anyway, on May 21st we shall see the official specs. (or earlier, if there is leak(s)!)
Edit: The official Chinese Pentax site has also made the announcement!
And, one more new image (for the right side view of the "new K") is published:-
EL Screen? Nice if True!
(All leaked pictures are directly linked to the sources - Check the link properties yourself if you wish.)
Edit 3: New Teasers also appear in Sweden, Canada, Germany and USA! View the official Pentax webpages:-

http://www.pentax.es/home.htm (That was the first count down meter by Pentax but the image of the "New K" is not the K-7! Just a K20D, I think.)
And, Pentax UK has nothing yet! (What are they doing?)
Really funny! But I have to tell that that K-7 with vertical grip image is *Real*!!
