Via Twitter, MSI shares a teaser photo of an upcoming CARBON series motherboard. The product is most likely the Z490 CARBON. The Z490 series are compatible with the upcoming Intel Comet Lake-S processors, which will be revealed next month. Comet Lake-S uses the new LGA1200 socket, which means you'll need a new motherboard to use these processors.
Interestingly, it appears that at least some Z490 motherboards will be PCI Express 4.0 ready. This feature isn't supported by the Comet Lake-S but may be activated via the future Rocket Lake-S.
