Announced at the end of the Honkai Impact 3rd Anniversary concert, the game now has an official social media page, as well as a teaser image for the upcoming title.
The game’s English Facebook Page only has a single post, mentioning that Honkai Star Rail would be welcoming Beta applicants starting October 8th, but no word has been given on when that beta would actually be.
UPDATE: Read more about the Beta here.
While the concert itself has since been set to Private on YouTube, some fans managed to save recordings of the short teaser for the game, which sets it after the Honkai Impact spinoff event, A Post Honkai Odyssey

UPDATE: miHoYo has also uploaded the full version of the teaser here:
While the teaser shows several new characters, we still know very little about its actual setting and lore. Of the three characters shown in the teaser miHoYo hasn’t revealed any of their names, or if they’re even playable.
Fans have been speculating about the existence of Honkai Star Rail for months now, following two trademark filings by miHoYo. One of those trademark filings was also for Honkai 4, though there remains no information regarding that title.
They finally heard more about it when they accidentally uploaded the launcher to the Google Play store, which was quickly datamined and its contents spread online between fans.
