Nikon claims that the Nikon D750 has a newly modified sensor - from the press release: "The Nikon D750 features a newly developed 24.3-MP FX-format CMOS sensor". They made the pitch of each individual pixel larger (source). The D750 sensor does have an AA filter.

alloy frame on the back and top

The Nikon D750 has an alloy frame on the back and top and carbon fiber in the front (remember that rumor back from 2010?), from the press release: "adopts durable carbon fiber for the front body and front cover, and resilient magnesium alloy for the rear cover and top cover".

Nikon D750 AF system

The D750 has the same AF and Power Aperture feature (for smooth transitions during recording) found in the $1,000 more expensive D810. There is a discussion on dpreview about the spread of AF points in the D750's viewfinder being smaller than the spread in the D810's viewfinder - I don't think that's the case, but I could be wrong.

The  D750 could have the best high ISO performance in the entire Nikon DSLR lineup, here is a quote from nikon.com: "the D750 even surpasses the D810 in image quality at high sensitivities, and the large pixel pitch delivers advantages in definition, depth, tonal gradation and clear color".
