A new leak indicates AMD is working on a Ryzen 7 3700U processor, but it's unclear whether this APU is based on the Zen+ or the Zen 2 design. We do know the chip has four cores and eight threads, with a 2.2GHz base clock and a 3.8GHz Boost. The integrated graphics part seems to identify itself as Radeon Picasso, at least in UserBenchmark, but other tools like SiSoft Sandra recognize it as Radeon RX Vega 10. It's unknown whether Picasso is something new or a rebrand of Vega 10.
The low-power APU line has been lagging behind the Ryzen desktop solutions. Back in April 2017, when Ryzen 1000X series were announced, the only APUs available were based on Bristol Ridge architecture.

The succeeding 2000U line was indeed using Zen, but it was introduced in October, months after Ryzen 1000X series, but also months ahead of Ryzen 2000X CPUs.

The sudden appearance of 3700U could, therefore, indicate that the 3000X series are at least 6-7 months away from now (assuming 3700U launches soon).
