It’s still a year, at least, before we could see Apple announcing iPhone 13 but things are already in process. A new report suggests that Apple has already come up with the design of a device that will be a little thicker compared to the iPhone 12. However, this device is expected to feature a notch smaller than what is being used currently.
Other than the aforementioned changes, the remaining external design – including that rear camera bump – will not change.
As far as the thickness of the new device is concerned, it is expected to be around 0.26mm added to the current device chassis according to Macotakara.
“As information for Chinese suppliers, the next iPhone 13 will continue to adopt the iPhone 12’s four-product enclosure design, and while the height and width will remain unchanged, the thickness will increase by 0.26 mm”, sources said.
Also, interesting news is that the Pro and Pro Max variants of the upcoming iPhone will feature the same camera bump on their back. This is suggestive of the fact that the former will come with the same sensor-shift image stabilization that the larger device is expected to come with. It wasn’t that way in case of the iPhone 12 models.
“The iPhone 13 Pro’s rear camera unit is the same size as the iPhone 13 Pro Max, so the wide-angle camera may have sensor-shifted optical image stabilization.”
We are not likely to have any official announcements from Apple related to the upcoming iPhone 13 line until September this year. There are some who suggest that the smartphone manufacturer will have another launch in October, however. The launch of the iPhone 12 devices was delayed a few weeks than the normal schedule that Apple usually follows due to some design/production issues that resulted from the pandemic.
