Update: 6 July 2022 Photo Rumours has recently posted a new leak regarding the possibly soon to be announced Hasselblad X2D. This new leak shows a manufactured top plate of a Hasselblad X series camera with X2D engraved as the model number. 

Previous leaked images have shown this top plate before, but the images where grainy, and didn't look like true to like images. However, with this latest leak you can clearly make out that this is a real X2D top plate, with opening for the LCD screen which leads this article.
