Nothing will be announced as they will just be promoting the new camera in Japan.
There was a recent rumor that mentioned the E-M1X was going to get a major firmware update. The E-M1iii is also due for a major firmware update. I could see them announcing this during the summer unless they want to make the announcement at the same time as new Olympus body this fall. Something similar to what Panasonic did with the GH5ii/GH6/G9 announcements
Oh ho, maybe it will be a new Tough camera?
I couldn't be less excited about another Tough model, but it would be wild if they did a Tough with 4/3s sensor and a fixed 17/2.8 or similar, that had similar waterproofing as current Tough. That would obviously never be a big seller, but could be an interesting enough niche offering to at least pay for the R&D costs, and get a few more eyeballs on Olympus.
I'm not sure how much this PEN Day thing was hyped. I only was aware of it from this thread. But whatever the amount of hype, it was almost certainly oversold."PEN Day."
