I wonder if it will be larger diameter like the River, Stiker, and Stalker. That's the main thing I didn't like about those discs. But that's also what gives them their glide and differentiates them from all the other drivers out there.

Have they released tech specs yet? Only think I might be interested in is if it somehow manages to fight wind while keeping that River like sneaky long ability. I'm not sure if that is possible but you never know.

From DiscGolfSweden.se:

Opto Saint
Long Range Driver
Flight characteristics: Stable
Produced: 2012 May
PDGA Approval date: 05-20-2012

Diameter: 21.2 cm
Maximum weight: 176.0 gram
Height: 1.9 cm
Rim depth: 1.2 cm
Inside rim diameter: 17.4 cm
Rim thickness: 1.9 cm
Rim depth/ Diameter ratio: 5.7 %
Rim configuration ratio: 29.25
Flexibility rating: 8.85

So it looks like a small diameter speed 9 driver.

Maybe they noticed the success of the PD and want to try to make a similar disc.

If you look at the disc profile on this link, it looks like it will be understable.

If you are referring to this , its a generic guide they use for all discs to show what the different specs actually measure.
