• A frosted glass casing most probably for the rear
• Reverse wireless charging to charge other devices that will also support wireless charging
• A triple-lens camera system, possibly for the largest "Max" model

• The same size screens as the current XR and XS generation: 5.8-, 6.1-, and 6.5-inch screens
