If so, when do you think we will see it? Early 2018, mid 2018 or late 2018?

What specs will the processor have?

If overclockable, will it need a higher end chipset to do this?

I don't think it's that likely, they have the 7350K now, they made an effort to block the "non Z" OC thing,
and with the 4560 so cheap with 2c/4t maybe it's not really that interesting anymore to get another 2c/2t unlocked chip that requires Z chipset for OC.

Who would the market be for it? 2c/2t cpu's are pointless for gaming even at high frequency. And people browsing the internet don't care either.

I hear you about the Core i3 7350K and G4560. In addition to these there also former business desktops with Core i5 3470 getting pretty cheap now. By next year Core i5 4570 should be getting pretty cheap as well.

Maybe to get around the Z chipset issue, they could make an unlocked BGA Celeron? In 2C/4T configuration?

I decided to vote yes......although I think it will be hard for Intel to make such a processor relevant.

I doubt it. Intel is known for arrogance and greed, and they force consumers to buy new sockets unnecessary for nothing. Plus their CPUs depreciate like crazy after 5 years or so.
