Supposed iPhone 13 Pro dummy shows smaller notch and repositioned camera
Japanese blog Macotakara has shared images and a hands-on video with a supposed iPhone 13 dummy, showing what is said to be the design of Apple’s next iPhone, featuring a smaller notch, repositioned camera system and repositioned earpiece, which is said to be integrated into the device’s top bezel.
The Japanese site has obtained a 3D printed model of what is said to be the “iPhone 13 Pro.” According to the site, the TrueDepth camera and sensor system on the new model will be slightly smaller in width than the iPhone 12 Pro, but slightly taller, measuring in at 5.35 mm in height, compared to the 5.3 mm of the iPhone 12 Pro.
In terms of width, the notch is said to shrink from 34.83mm to 26.80mm.
According to the report, at least for now, Apple is considering moving the infrared camera and light shooting illuminator, currently on the left-hand side of the earpiece on the iPhone 12 Pro, to the middle of the notch on the new iPhone 13 Pro. It is said that the speaker/mic will then be moved closer to the body, as seen in earlier alleged leaked front glass panels for the device.
It is understood that the rear camera system will remain as it is now on the iPhone 12 Pro, with no changes to the position or size.
