We won’t know exactly what Apple has in store for its next iPhone until September.

Even though that’s still about five months away, various leaks and notes from analysts have painted a picture of what we might be able to expect from the successor to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

Based on what we’ve heard, it sounds like the changes will focus more on enhancing features like the camera rather than redesigning what the phone looks like.

It will probably be called the iPhone 7 and come in two sizes

The next iPhone may be so significantly different than the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus that Apple could call it the iPhone 7, not the iPhone 6s. At least that’s what Ming Chi-Kuo of KGI Securities believes, which he wrote in a note earlier this month.

Kuo also believes that Apple will stick to the sizes it introduced in September, and will offer the next iPhone in both 4.7 and 5.5-inch variants.

There’s a chance we’ll see a new 4-inch iPhone, too

Taiwanese publication Digitimes reports that Apple is planning to release three iPhones: a 4.7-inch phone, a 5.5-inch model, and a new 4-inch iPhone. It’s unclear how this 4-inch phone would fit into Apple’s current iPhone lineup, and how it would be branded. Digitimes also has a mixed track record, so this report may be bogus.
