It would be nice to have a little animation before the power off actually starts.

For example, if we hold the Power button more than 1 second, a countdown could show up and tell us we are going to power off in 4..3..2..1 second, and then power off.

... or to ask a question:- I can imagine scenarios when the device is in your pocket and you turn it off by accident...

Yes. But, at least, it should show something to the user, otherwise it just looks like it's broken.

it's related , for sure. In the end, what I want to highlight is the need for a UI feedback when pressing the power button. Here I propose a countdown, but a choice dialog would be fine as well :)
