Although there are a number of rumored release dates, this one is the latest. In a recent podcast, Shinobi said:

I’ve heard that Sony will announce the PS4 Neo at Paris Games Week. This made sense to me because the supposed upgrades are coming in what, October? I would have said this publicly if I was 100% sure, but it’s just what I was told.

The new PlayStation will feature overhauled hardware and it will be capable of delivering performance in 4K resolution. It may also feature Virtual Reality support, as it is rapidly growing in trend.
