"On November 6, we’ll introduce a new kind of flash, unlike any we have ever done before," says Profoto.

More information added as of 5/11/13. See below.

Update 2: Here it is.

“On November 6, we’ll introduce a new kind of flash, unlike any we have ever done before,” says Profoto. “It’s too early to reveal what it is, but we can say this much: it’s not a flash pack and it’s not a monolight.”

Details are scarce so far, but on Wednesday 6th November the Swedish lighting manufacturer is set to unveil its latest photography light. They also supplied this teaser pic, which reveals at least a digital display and battery level indicator.
