Am I misreading the comments, or are people saying this could be a full frame body?
No, that's just conjecture. It also doesn't say anything in the specs about focus stacking and zebras but does that mean it has those features?

You’re misreading the comments. (If you refer to the ones where people compare it to the original 1D series bodies, well, those weren’t full-frame either. But sensor size is not what people are talking about.)

I can see from the pictures we are going for the old USB, rather than using a type c connector.

It's a Rebel. What do you expect? It's probably also only USB2 instead of USB3.
From a xxxD I do expect to see USB-C more than on a pro camera, the customer base is likely to plug directly into their MacBook Air or iPad and even charge with the same cable.

And most Android users have micro-USB cables (which is what the photos of the Rebel T8i/850D appear to be). So what's your point? Do you think "typical" users of Rebels are more likely to have MacBook Air or iPad devices than Android devices?

There are very few Android tablets. Windows tablets predominantly have USB-C. And yes I expect the typical users of this will have a computer 3 years old or newer and will likely buy a new computer in its lifespan. I do not think a legacy port is acceptable on any device released today.

I'm guessing many (most?) potential Rebel buyers have no tablet of any kind and their most used electronic device is a phone. But I guess in your little Apple bubble there aren't many Android phones out there, either?

The few Android phones still being sold on legacy USB will quickly become obsolete as well as iPhone's that are still using the legacy lightning connector. The type-c connector has been the standard for sometime and will be for quite a few years to come, it is disappointing that any manufacturer would choose to ship a obsolete port. This especially applies to Apple with their insistence on using the lightning connector for iPhones.
