There are actually two new mechanics I've seen in the trailer that haven't been mentioned yet (hopefully I'm not doing anything wrong)

1. New minion types!
If you look at 0:15 to 0:18, there is a purple minion running to the left next to Xin Zhao. It's not a super minion, as it seems to be running faster and significantly smaller. Could it be a new minion granted per control point?
If the first video's minions are hard to see, you can actually see it again at 0:33, another purple minion running from the left towards the bottom that is neither a melee minion nor a super minion (different gait and size)!
2. Health/other bonus pickups!
If you take a look at the trailer at 0:33, there is a little plus sign in the background, possibly a new pickup you can receive and fight over that may grant you extra health.

If anybody else sees anything new/interesting, please point it out!

I've heard that the summoner spell, Promote, is returning along with new ones as well.

And there are healing/speed-boosting pickups on the map

Two new Items. (besides the Lightning proc one and the substitute Banshees) Prospector's Ring(950) and the Hextech Sweeper(1870) both in the AP tree. (They come from one of the interview videos not the trailer though)

Edit: Changed the sweeper cost to 1870 (Not sure why I originally had it as 1370)
