Apple is yet to announce the successor of iPhone 12 series, but according to reports and going by Apple’s nomenclature pattern the series is expected to be named as iPhone 13 series. The tech giant is expected to introduce four new iPhones in September this year namely iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
And for the very first time we now have an alleged picture of the new iPhone 13. The new picture which is believed to be the backside of an iPhone 13 mini, first appeared on a Chinese microblogging site Weibo and was first spotted by GizChina and reported about it.
The iPhone 13 mini leaked picture gave us a detailed look at the design of the upcoming smartphone. The camera module visible in the leaked picture of the iPhone, appears square in shape. But when compared with the iPhone 12 mini, the iPhone 13 mini camera module design looks different. The dual image sensors which were placed adjacent in the iPhone 12, are placed diagonally to one another in the iPhone 13.
In the leaked photo the alleged iPhone 13 mini is blue in colour similar to that of the iPhone 12 mini. We can expect more colour options when the smartphone gets officially launched. As far as the design is concerned apart from a few design changes in the camera module, the iPhone 13 mini appears to be more or less similar to the iPhone 12 mini.
A leak in CAD renders that surfaced last week revealed that all models of the upcoming iPhone series will sport a smaller notch when compared to predecessor. The CAD renders suggest that the new iPhone 13 mini is very much similar to the current iPhone 12 mini. The only noticeable difference is in the camera module where the cameras appear to be diagonal instead of one over the other.
While we have heard from multiple sources that some of the upcoming iPhone 13 models may have the portless design however the CAD renders suggest that iPhone 13 mini will not be the one. The renders showcase a lighting port suggesting portless design is not available for iPhone 13 mini.
As mentioned before the diagonal camera setup as seen in the renders and photos would sport a similar 5.4-inch display as seen on the iPhone 12 mini. The dimensions of all the new iPhone models will also be the same as of the iPhone 12 models with iPhone 13 mini being the smallest in size. Further, the report suggests that considering the bad performance of the iPhone 12 mini, the company will use new technology to improve the battery life of the upcoming mini.
Although all these leaks and rumours are not yet confirmed by the US based company, it is quite possible that all these rumours will come true in September this year. The company is also believed to come with some of the other features that the iPhone 13 series could possess are- powerful processor likely A15 Bionic chip, in-display fingerprint scanner, improved cameras and more.
