There is a brand new Rollei film camera coming "as early as possible" this year: the Rollei 35AF. 

Designed and developed by Mint Camera – boutique manufacturer of some of the best instant cameras – the Rollei 35AF started in 2022 as a project to apply Mint's ability to engineer brand new instant cameras to the world of 35mm film. At that time, however, it was merely a camera inspired by the classic Rollei 35; the brand wasn't involved in the project.
