Is there a precedent that this could precede a hardware update?

No. Could hope they're clearing out lower spec inventory, but even some upgraded models with Vega48 and 2TB SSD are on sale so even that is not a signal.

The iMacs are in need of at least a GPU refresh and RX580-based dGPU's really should be replaced with 5XXX series sometime this year. The lower end CPUs could be spec bumped, but not a ton of options for the i9. Easy to eliminate the HDD/Fusion configs and go SSD only. Up for debate if next will be a refresh or more of a redesign release.

The MBP16,1 was released quickly even after a refresh for the 15" model in the same calendar year, so maybe they could do both?

$150 doesn't signal anything with regards to a possible new model. These go on and off sale all the time at various non-Apple retailers.

What sucks is that almost no one carries one with an SSD in stock. I agree the Fusion is ridiculous in this day and age. Even a measly 256GB PCI-e SSD (OEM cost around $25 or less) would make a HUGE difference in performance, and not cost Apple anything.
