Godox recently revealed their AD200 Witstro monolight on Facebook, and the new monolight seems much different than most offerings out there already. For starters, it’s a giant block–and has a flash head that is rectangular in shape vs the more traditional circular area. The Godox AD200 Witstro has TTL and HSS capabilities for Canon, Nikon, and Sony cameras.
Here are some features provided via FlashHavoc.

Yes, it’s got a bare bulb like many monolights and other hybrid options out there, which is kind of cool.
Considering Godox’s traditional market approach, I’m sure we can expect Adorama or B&H Photo to copy the exact product for their Impact and Flashpoint house brands in some way or another. That’s not a bad thing, it makes it more available to many of us. Their monolights and flashes are also very good and affordable. Plus, even the likes of Broncolor uses their transmitters and charges a premium for it.
We got no official release date yet, but they’re bound to hit the market this year.
