Macotakara is back again with new rumours about upcoming iPhones, but not about the SE 2 this time. Instead, the website claims to have received information from sources about Apple's next flagships, and goes into a far amount of detail about them too.
Alex Alderson,

Apple is expected to release three new iPhones again this September, with the rumoured iPhone SE 2 expected to make an appearance in March. While we are probably still several months away from the arrival of leaked renders, Japanese website Macotakara claims to have received information on the three iPhone 11 series successors from sources within Apple's Chinese supply chain.

Referred to by their screen sizes, the website claims that the 6.7-inch model, the biggest of the three, will diverge from the iPhone 11 Pro Max in some areas. Not only will the device be slightly taller than its predecessor, but it will feature larger camera sensors than the 11 Pro Max too. 

Interestingly, apparently only the 6.7-inch model will have three rear-facing cameras, a change from the iPhone 11 series. By contrast, Macotakara claims that the 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch models will sport the same dual sensor array that Apple included in the iPhone 11. Apple will apparently equip the three models with different numbers of microphones, too.

However, all three will have OLED panels, a change from LCD-equipped iPhone XR and iPhone 11. Apple will shrink the bezels of these panels to 2 mm too, while all three will be around 7.4 mm thick. Essentially, the iPhone 11s series, or whatever Apple ends up calling it, will be about as thick as the iPhone 8.

Finally, the height of the 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch models will sit between the iPhone SE and iPhone 8, and the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro respectively.
