Since some photos of the Manker's newest unreleased model have leaked out on the Chinese forums, Manker has decided to spill the beans on their newest model getting ready for production.  I introduce to you the MK34!

Update 20160810 - It looks like the price I was originally told has been approved and the MK34 is officially for sale or, at least preorder.  Here is the first link I've seen:  http://www.outdoor-gear-store.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=MK34
Here are the listed specs from that store...


Manker MK34 12x CREE XP-G3 / 12x Nichia 219B LED Flashlight
Features:
Emitter Type: 12* CREE XP-G3 /12* Nichia 219B
Light Tint: XPG3 (6500K) / 219B (5000K)
Material: Aero grade aluminum alloy & copper
Battery Configurations: 3 x 18650 battery
Impact Resistant : 1.5 meter
Max Output: XP-G3 8000lumens / Nichia 219B 6500lumens
Working Voltage: 2.8-4.35v
Lens: TIR
Waterproof: IPX-8 waterproof 2 meters
Weight: 278g without battery
Size: 98mm x 55mm(length x Head Diameter)
Update 20160727:  New photo with neutral anodizing color and full engraving!  Loving the color!!


Update:  Will be available mid-August.

Initial specs:

  • Official name:  Manker MK34 (from 3*4 LEDs)
  • 12 LEDS (3 quad MCPCBs)
  • Will be offered in two LED choices:  Cree XP-G3 or Nichia 219B
  • Massive output!  XP-G3 - 8000 lumens!
                              219B - 6000 lumens!
  • Powered by three 18650 cells (IMR recommended)
  • Electronic switch - same great switch used in the U21
  • Type III mil-spec anodizing
  • Super compact size
  • UI information will be revealed when sample units are sent for testing (Look for first sample testing here!)
Enough of the specs.  More will be released here as confirmed by Manker.  On to the photos supplied to me by Manker!


























Notes: 
Just judging from the comparison photo I can say the MK34 will be much easier to hold and carry than the Noctigon M43, its closest competitor.  The 3-cell design will be much more hand friendly than the M43 which I find to be too fat for it's short size.  Runtime may not be as good since it has one less cell but just for comfort I know I will grab for it before I grab my M43.


Output with the newest XP-G3 LEDs will provide massive output with a colder tint.  The Nichia 219B version will provide 6000 lumens of High CRI NW tint goodness.


I LOVE that dragon's/Sauron's Eye switch.  I love it on the U21 and want to see it on all their lights. but that's just personal preference.

Awesome! I preferred the whitish color in the T01 but in this model I like the black.

Maybe THIS is why I never purchased the Meteor  ;)

Pricing isn't official but it should be well under $150

Latest photo available just added to the OP!  Great natural anodizing color!  I expect it to be available in both Black and Natural.

Nice Grey.
I know, right?  It reminds me of the color on my Black Shadow Terminators, which is my all time favorite.

LOL!  It definitely bears a resemblance to the Norelco shavers but much, much cooler! I cannot wait to get this little monster in my hands.

Keep us posted!
Should you approve, going to buy.
Wish 219C were used.
