We found this Canon Japan patent which shows clever positioning on what clearly is a variant of a powershot G7x series camera body.
Some more DPAF (dual pixel autofocus) patents were discovered in the US patent office database.
Unfortunately, there's no direct way of linking to the patent application (sad!) however, this is the easiest process to view a japan patent or application.
