     Interestingly, there're holding out on revealing the resolution of the sensor as if it's not a key specification ........ I was thinking it would be 20 Mps using global shutter technology as BC had alluded to some time back ..... other sources were alluding to it also ........ in which case why state:

"flash sync is now possible with the electronic shutter when used with external speed-lites and rolling shutter for fast moving subjects has been reduced"

........ the key word being "reduced" ....... rather than eliminated !!

.... is it using electronic shutter/ global shutter or both ??
It's not marketed towards video so I reckon that it doesn't feature a global shutter.

I don't really remember typing about it having a global shutter... I remember Canon announced a month ago it will do 30 FPS with full DPAF and AE, and the sensor being a stacked. back side illuminated sensor. 
And that it will have a faster read out to limit rolling shutter.

A "global shutter" is an electronic shutter, by the way.

    I understand that ...... it reads all the pixels at once ....... as opposed to scanning in this case at high speed à là Sony A1...... 

here but in reference to the R1:

"Another sensor, this time in rumour space, is a 21mp FF sensor, with global shutter. It is suggested to be for an "EOS R1". 120dB dynamic range, 120 FPS full readout capable."
Ah right, that "R!" sensor. Well, the R3 will be of higher resolution than 21mp is my estimation, else there are not that many pixels left to offer oversampled HQ 4K.
The R5 offers both "normal" line skipping 4K and oversampled HQ 4K, with its 45mp sensor. And 8K, of course.

You're right BC, over sampled 4K/8K must mean a higher Mp sensor ........ maybe it uses the same R5 sensor .... there was a theory that the R3 had a 87 MPs sensor that could do both ES scanning and 21 Mps global shutter ........

   I'll call that ......"smoke-screen ware" !!
Not quite the R5 sensor, as Canon does state that the R3 has faster read out and is its first stacked BSI sensor. Maybe we will know soon?
