French distributor says PS4 Neo will be out before October

Update

So Innelec - the below company - has now made a statement (opens in new tab) on the matter and says that it has no "official information about the launch of a 4K Neo".  It seems a little strange that the company invented the information for its end of year report but that's the official line.

Original story

Tis the season to glean all kinds of interesting information as companies try and cheer their share holders up with news of exciting new products no one is meant to know about. French gaming distributor Innelec Multimedia has done just that and its end of year report states that the PS4 'Neo 4K' will be out in the first part of the new finanical year. Previous reports (opens in new tab) have suggested a 4K output and the code name Neo so this is even further evidence pointing to an E3 reveal. 

Reported on financial site Boursier.com (opens in new tab)the (poorly) translated details from Innelec states "The current year should be marked for the video game world by the arrival, in the first half of our fiscal year, an evolution of the Sony PS4 console with the Neo 4K, with new features and that the placing on the market in October 2016 virtual reality helmet Sony VR."

It then goes on to reveal that we "should also see the launch of the new Nintendo console NX, in March 2017." This also matches up with previous reports from Nintendo's own financial reports so definitely hints that this is a legitimate source. E3 is definitely going to be interesting.
