K-7 audio specs?

I've searched but can't find this info. Does anyone know what the audio specs are for the K-7? There is a 3.5mm stereo mic plug, but I haven't seen anything beyond that. Specifically:

bit depth? (hoping for 16bit but could live with 12)
48Khz or 44.1Khz (or, yikes, 22Khz)
mic or line level input (I'm assuming mic)

The onboard mono I don't really care about as the related noise issues make that a non-starter for anything beyond quick grabs or silent b-roll.

In the pre-production camera they were having muli-plexing problems with the video, so maybe it hasn't yet been determined.

The stereo input on my pre-production unit is broken (I checked that it is supposed to work, just bad luck)

As for the mono sound, it is recorded in 16 Bit, 32 kHz.

The input level is mic. But some tester (befor me) may have blasted it by putting something else ...
