The new one will apparently be half the size of the older one but will retain the same form factor, we also don’t have any details on how Apple will change the internals to cut the price down.

2020 iPhone Pro pair to borrow iPad Pro’s flat edges and LiDAR sensor
We’ve had some conflicting leaks for the iPhone 12 line up so far but, we have a new report from Bloomberg to clear some things up. The report claims that we should expect two premium iPhone Pro models, and two lower-end models to be the successors of the iPhone 11. The report confirms the previous leaks that it will bring flat edges like the ones on the iPhone 4 or the newer iPad Pros and that they will both come equipped with that LiDAR sensor that we saw recently on the iPad for AR applications. As for the other cameras, there will still be three sensors but we don’t know if the resolution count or sensor sizes are going up.
