There is no clue about the what the new iPhone will be called but it is assured that whatever it may be called, the new iPhone will be a super advanced phone having ultra fast processing speed and tons of new features.
There is more chances that Apple Inc will shift to next number ( iPhone 7) and the new iPhone could be called iPhone 7.

As seen with iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the iPhone 7 Plus will be slightly larger in size as compared to iPhone 7. The size of iPhone 7 Plus could go upto 5.8 inch however the KGI securities analyst Ming-Chi Kou believes that the company will stick to 4.7 and 5.5 inches. It has been noticed that the predictions by Ming-Chi Kou come out to be true most of the time so the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus will possibly have same sizes as iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
The phone will have 12 MP primary camera and 2 MP front facing camera for self shoot. Talking about the memory, both the phones could have upto 256 GB internal memory that may increase the price a bit. The phones will run latest iOS 9 having 1.5 Ghz dual-core CPU coupled with A9 chipset and upto 3GB of ram to minimise the lag time to zero.

Since both the phones are ultra advanced and carrying such a great hardware, they could be priced a bit higher. It is expected that they will fall under the price range of 1000 to 1200 USD based upon internal memory sizes. The price may also vary depending upon the the country you are living in.
