The price seems to be a moving target. The most recent leak from on Twitter says that the 5.4-inch will start at $699 for 64GB. The 6.1-inch have a $799 price for the same amount of storage.

The 6.1-inch screen would cost $749.

All four 2020 iPhones will have 5G, Kuo says.

Here’s a closer look at what to expect from each model, as detailed by a report from Display Supply Chain CEO Ross Young.

Look for the entry-level to feature a 5.4-inch OLED panel with rumored resolution of 2340×1080. Young expects the display to feature Y-OCTA technology, which means that the touch sensor is integrated directly into the display.

In terms of other hardware, the is expected to feature an A14 processor, 4GB of RAM and a choice between 128GB and 256GB of storage. Like the iPhone 11, this model will rely on dual rear cameras, losing the telephoto in the Pro variants.

This 6.1-inch iPhone will feature the same hardware as the standard A14 processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB or 256GB of storage and dual rear cameras. The biggest difference will be the screen and battery size, both of which will see increases. will have a larger flexible 6.1-inch OLED panel with 2532×1170 resolution.

The 6.1-inch flexible OLED on this model could be the first phone to feature 10-bit color support, according to Young. It will feature a 2532×1170 resolution along with Y-OCTA technology.

Expect 6GB of RAM in this A14-powered model with storage options ranging from 128GB to 512GB. The Pro series is rumored to feature three rear lenses, highlighted by a 64MP main sensor, plus a LiDAR time-of-flight sensor that will improve performance of iPhone AR apps

Expect the same RAM, storage and camera features as the only with a bigger 6.7-inch OLED panel. Resolution could be 2778×1824, and a 120Hz refresh rate is a possibility here, too.

If you’re wondering how all four rumored models compare, Jon Prosser shared a graphic on Twitter back in April showing the four models and their key specs.

A better look at how the different sizes compare comes in a YouTube video by iupdate that shows relatively high-quality dummy units in three different sizes, and compares how they fit in people’s hands.
