Since the iPhone X was launched in 2017, the groove has retained Apple’s smart Face ID scanning technology, but it has always been the main content of the iPhone design. However, it seems that the rumors are correct. When the iPhone 13 comes out in September this year, the notch will be reduced. .
Mac Otakara has mastered what it considers to be a 3D printed model of the iPhone 13 Pro. As you can see in the photos and videos below, although the overall size of the phone is similar, the notch will be greatly reduced when placed side by side with the iPhone 12 Pro.
If you are struggling to judge that the size of the iPhone 13 pro’s notch is much smaller, then the photographer will put a ruler on both phones. It is actually 5.35 mm higher than the 5.30 mm of the old notch, but it is significantly thinner. The height of the new notch is 26.80 mm, which is lower than the 34.83 mm of the iPhone 12 Pro.
The rough model also reveals how Apple has made changes without affecting functionality: the earpiece seems to have been pushed into the bezel of the iPhone 13 Pro. The front camera also seems to have moved from the right side of the notch to the left side.
The picture on the back of the phone has not changed at all, the same triangular three-camera array is located in the small square bump in the upper left corner.
Although Mac Otakara did not share the full size of the model, the iPhone 13 Pro prototype does not seem to be much different from its predecessors, indicating that there is an iterative update in the design.
However, appearance can be deceptive. Not only do we expect that the new Apple A chip (5nm A15 reportedly coming into production soon) will bring the usual performance and efficiency improvements, but Apple has apparently planned plans for its battery technology, which may make its debut in the iPhone 13 family .
According to last year’s report, Apple will launch a soft-board battery with fewer layers to increase capacity with a smaller physical footprint. This means that the iPhone 13 Pro can improve the disappointing endurance of its predecessor without having to compensate with a thicker body, which is obviously Apple’s plan. This will help, because Apple is also expected to introduce a 120Hz panel for the iPhone 13 Pro model.
Due to the addition of sensor shift stabilization to the entire product lineup, the larger aperture of the ultra-wide-angle lens, and the astrophotography function for capturing the night sky, the iPhone 13 is also expected to provide better camera performance.
This iPhone 13 virtual device absolutely cannot prove that the gap of the new iPhone is small, but more and more evidence shows that Apple is moving in this direction.
