It'll be live by the end of September.

For now we have the first impressions review, which combined with the K-S2 review should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect:

Pentax K70

Its sensor is actually more similar to the K3-II, not the K-S2.
I bought a K70 a few weeks ago. I had a K30 before.
I have mix feelings:
- It is certainly a very good camera at this price point
- The difference of Image Quality with the K30 is smaller than expected.
- The look is way inferior to the K30, which was a superb piece of industrial design.
- It is slightly heavier, when I hoped for a lighter camera
- The viewfinder is very good with AF lenses, but still inadequate for manual focusing
- I like the movable LCD, very convenient
- Handling is superb, as often with Pentax
- The autofocus seems to be slightly improved
