While most rumors have suggested that the 6.5-inch 2019 iPhone is the only model to have three rear cameras, the latest report from Japanese blog Macotakara states otherwise. 

Based on information from Chinese suppliers, Macotakara claims that the triple-lens system may be available on the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch iPhone models with higher-capacity storage tiers. Macotakara also shared that the design of the triple-lens system will be similar to that on the Huawei Mate 20.

Tipster @OnLeaks published purported renders of the 6.5-inch 2019 iPhone model which show three rear cameras and a square camera bump. Following that, CompareRaja and @OnLeaks uncovered a set of renders that show an iPhone model with a horizontal triple rear camera system

The Wall Street Journal claims that the successor of the iPhone XR will have a dual-camera module on the back while the flagship model (presumably the 6.5-inch iPhone)  will have a triple-camera system on the back. Bloomberg also believed the triple-camera system is exclusive to the flagship model and Apple will eventually introduce for the other two models.
