Apple is reportedly gearing up to unleash a trio of new iPhone models this fall, and new details for the handsets have leaked.

According to Bloomberg, citing anonymous sources, Apple is going to launch an iPhone with a 6.5-inch display and another more affordable device rumored to feature a 6.1-inch screen. Both models are anticipated to feature designs similar to the iPhone X.

Bloomberg’s report claims the 6.5-inch model will feature a display resolution of 1242×2688, giving it a similar sharpness to the screen featured in the current iPhone X. Other expected features include Face ID and an A12 processor, along with what will likely be a high price tag.

Additionally, Apple is reportedly considering a gold color option for the follow-up to the 5.8-inch iPhone X and the 6.5-inch model. Bloomberg cites the color’s popularity in Asia as a reason for its inclusion in Apple’s new iPhone X lineup. Apple may also consider supporting dual-SIM models this fall.

Apple’s more affordable iPhone will look like the iPhone X but reportedly won’t be as cutting-edge. It’s expected to feature Face ID instead of Touch ID, but its screen will be LCD instead of OLED. Additionally, rather than stainless steel edges, the device is expected to feature aluminum.

Apple typically unveils new iPhone models in the fall, so it will be several months until we know more. Bloomberg claims Apple is trying to “rekindle sales” with its upcoming lineup after the iPhone X underperformed.
