There's, of course, the X-T3 which could be seen as the natural successor. However, it seems to be a little pointless to me because the X-T30 is technically pretty much identical.
However, there's also the X-H1 - which is, in fact, cheaper than the X-T3 locally. Yes, it doesn't have the latest AF - but that's irrelevant. 2mp less ... well ...
It does have superior handling though - and IBIS. But does it make sense as a test camera?
As a test camera, the X-T30 (or X-T3) with its 26MP makes more sense.
Now, if you want to buy a new body for yourself, it's a tougher decision.
I think the X-T30/3 only makes sense over the X-T20/2 generation if you value action/tracking or face detection.
In fact, it appears the 24MP X-T20/2 sensor offers slightly better DR and high ISO IQ.
The biggest plus of the X-H1 is IBIS of course.
Personally, if they had released an smaller factor X-H1 (say the size of the X-T1/2/3), that's the body I'd have purchased, solely because of IBIS, but as is I find it way too big.
