Godox, the Chinese lighting manufacturer, has a wireless TTL flash trigger in development, scheduled for launch this summer. The Godox X1 appears to be a radio transceiver similar in form factor to the Pixel King Pro, with a hotshoe mount on top and LCD control panel on the back.

Images posted on a Chinese forum showed off the device, presumably set to be shown off at the P&E photography trade fair. The X1 will apparently support triggering of the Ving V860, Godox’s lithium-ion TTL flashgun.
