No one knows when the next generation Pi will arrive but the indications are that it won't for a year and possibly even longer.

If you need or want faster speed then $35 is not much of an up-front investment and it would not be unreasonable to buy one now, take immediate advantage of what that has to offer, and depreciate its value to zero over a year. No working Pi will actually have zero value after a year.
Indeed - I'd advise not waiting. Because it could be a while.
