I noticed this recently, but haven't seen much talk about it. I don't think they mentioned it either during the keynote.

Obviously minor detail, but interesting that they've added additional antenna lines (I'm assuming these are antenna lines?)

Surprised that they would break the symmetry at the bottom of the phone. Actually also interesting that it sits where the 3.5mm headphone port used to be. I believe there's also an additional line on the top of the casing too.

but without those we wouldn't get 4X4 mimo
This.

I did see a hands-on video mention how they didn't like how the speaker holes weren't symmetrical. My immediate thought was, "So you'd rather have symmetrical speaker holes than 4x4 mimo? K."

The Max has 4 holes on the left

I kinda like it. Won’t be getting one but it’s kinda slick.

The RF power output is a downgrade with the new iPhone XS & max. Link: https://www.wiwavelength.com/

Band 41 (HPUE) for sprint is the only one that didn't go down, on the Xs only though, the max - did terrible. Now, FWIW, these are lab tested values and submitted to the FCC, real world, YMMV.
