I suspect it will use the motor upgrades from the TFC without the carbon bodywork

Looks like they dropped the spokes and the gold tone forks/shocks

That pic is not from Triumph, just a photoshopped guess (albeit a very well done one) from a guy on the Thruxton Facebook group.

"The all-new Thruxton 1200 RS is also expected to ride on better suspension hardware than its sibling. So, the 43 mm Showa USD forks, which serve on the 1200 R, are likely to be replaced by 41 mm Ohlins inverted fork along with Ohlins twin shocks with piggy back reservoir. The braking hardware, although, will be carried forward as in. This includes twin 310 mm Brembo floating discs at the front and a single 220 mm rear disc by Nissin. These brakes are complemented by electronic aids like dual channel ABS and switchable traction control system.

Triumph Thruxton 1200 RS is expected to go on sale in several international markets by the end of this year but we are not sure if it will reach our shores. And in case it does, then we expect that to happen somewhere in the latter half of 2020.

It's funny how, when they originally released the R, they said that they tested both the showa and ohlins forks and showa performed better.
