They will have Fusion Drives. Apple has cleared the decks of the more expensive Macs from having fusion drives out the door. Watch this space.

In a MacBook? I doubt. Maybe a Mac mini tho. There’s still an option for a fusion drive in the low end iMac I believe.

They'll be all-flash. Their architecture practically demands it. APFS practically demands it.

The 21.5" iMac is the last Mac that has a Fusion drive option. All other Intel Macs are SSD-only and T2 (and you can't have a T2-based Mac with a Fusion drive, hard drive, or anything that isn't solely an Apple OEM SSD). Everything in the current T2 chip will also be in the Apple Silicon SoCs.

Mechanical hard drives use more power than SSDs. The reason is because they spin. If Apple wanted to get the best battery performance outta the new Macbooks so they can market them as the longest lasting battery in the history of the Mac, adding a mechanical hard drive would work against them.
