Rolleiflex is BACK? Unfortunately NOT!

Update: March 28, 2030: We recently reported that a rumor seen on Twitter hinted at a return of the Roleiflex brand with a new digital TLR, first with a subtle "coming soon" post is a blacked-out TLR-style body, which then developed into a reasonable spec list that had a few questions marks hovering over it, but was a logical move.

Sadly, it has now been reviled that this news was a hoax by student  Josh Know, who is currently undergoing a course in media studies and this experiment was part of a study on product pirating and the spread of misinformation.
