Yes, but that's just a reflection of the transition to M1X (or whatever they call it.)

They're biding their time until the big unveil is ready. They're not going to update a mid-range MBP and then suggest their high-end customers buy that instead.

Sending 27" iMac customers down to a 24" model is upside-down for Apple. They would more likely release the larger size at a premium price, and tell the 21" customers there's a big chip shortage and to cool their jets in the meantime.
