Okay I'm not sure if it is only me but to me it looks like they added more floors than previously planned! I am predicting same to happen here as with Burj Khalifa, when the height was dramatically increased because they concluded that the foundation can handle more floors! So we might be very surprised to how tall will this end up

On another note, notice the stress on parks and promenades as part of this new district in the last image! and from the same image you can see how the plaza underneath the tower might end up, there is basically a Underground floor where the tower can be accessed! great new details

55 floors, which is a new record for Towers, I would think.

We might be on for a surprise it was 55, but the question is it still 55 or it got some major lift! My bet on the latter

The atrium floors have a very high ceiling (~30m), and a lot of the hotel/club floors also have what appears to be 6m high ceiling. That means the 55 floor occuppied section would easily be a supertall on its own.

Am I the only one seeing a great opportunity to extend this dead end of the Metro over the canal in order to connect Dubai Creek Harbour and The Tower with the rest of the Metro network?

I just can't believe the ctbuh article that states this will "only" be 928 meters tall. There's no way Dubai is gonna build this and not make it taller than Jeddah tower. Also when you look at the diagrams this tower is most likely in the 1100-1200 meter range since the highest floor is going to be 1014 meters above ground (if my sources are correct).

CTBUH only posts officially verified information, and "at least a hundred meters taller than Burj Khalifa" is I believe the only official statement Emaar ever made on the height. That's it's going to be far higher than that is just something we all know inofficially (but still obviously know.)
