With all the rumours swirling around about the 16" MBP coming next month, are there any talks of a 14" MBP? To be specific, the form factor of the current 13" but with smaller bezels and a larger display.

There are 6 serial numbers for MacBooks unaccounted for that were registered for the Eurasian Database a few months back... so if one is the 16’’, what are the other 5?? Maybe 14’’? Maybe Icelake 13’’? Maybe we’ll know in Oct, maybe we won’t?

I doubt October, but I expect we’ll see it by the end of 2020. Wild guess though.

Presumably one is very likely to replace the 4 TB3 13" model eventually. Don't expect it before next year though.

I don’t see why they wouldn’t update both 13’’ and 15’’ at the same time to be honest (at least the 4TB port 13’’)
Both releases are constrained by the availability of CPUs. For the updated 13" we'll most likely see Intel Ice Lake CPUs (including all the benefits), but I doubt the 15" would be released with an older chipset – so Apple might be waiting for availability of Ice Lake across the line.

Not sure how likely the 14” models will come out. But, one thing we know now is there are a few registered numbers that were leaked few months ago. Some of them have not yet revealed the models. Personally, I think it could be either the 13” without touchbar or 14” models. Hopefully, we can see new good things :)
