Leica is teasing that a new camera will be launched next week, but it won't be any old camera – it's being called "uma lenda reinventada" or "a reinvented legend". 

Okay, it won't be any old camera – though 'reinvented legend' does suggest that it will be an old camera of some sort, being given new life. The company did, after all, recently resurrect the Leica M6 film camera, so we could be seeing another beloved old body brought back to the market.
