New versions of Apple’s iPhone smart mobile might be a little thicker to accommodate more advanced camera and lens assemblies and could therefore lead to a more pronounced camera module, according to Macrumors.com portal sources.
According to the sources of the web portal, the new line of phones that, if Apple follows the naming system you have used since iPhone 4, must be the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro/Max, will have a thickness of 7.57 millimeters (mm), an increase compared to the thickness of 7.4mm of the current iPhone 12 and Pro/Max.
While the camera module thickness of the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro is between 1.5 to 1.7mm, according to Macrumors.com, the iPhone 13 module could increase to 2.51mm, while on the iPhone 13 Pro it could be up to 3.65mm.
The reason for the alleged increase in thickness is to prevent the lenses from so excelling and lagging closer to cellular coverage. This means that the camera module will now be wider, approaching a perfect square with dimensions of 29 by 29 mm (on the iPhone 13) and 36 by 37 mm on the iPhone 13 Pro. Apple is not expected to add a fourth camera to the module, so it will stick with a telephoto sensor or zoom, a wide-angle sensor (main module) and an ultra-wide sensor. The 12 Pro and Pro Max also include a LiDAR (laser light detection and measurement) sensor for augmented reality applications.
The new iPhones are expected to feature ProMotion displays with refresh times of up to 120 Hertz (Hz), and while the iPhone 12 line has moved to Organic Light Diode (OLED) displays, it’s not known whether Apple will use the Mini LED technology. record. which debuted on the 12-inch iPad Pro introduced last month.
In addition, rumor has it that Apple could include a Touch ID below the screen, indicating that Touch ID will return to iPhones and equate mobile with the phones of other companies such as Samsung and OnePlus, which are powered by two generations of phones.
Likewise, there are rumors that the so-called “chin” at the top of the screen, which includes the Face ID, TrueDepth and front camera sensors, may be getting smaller. Apple is currently the only major smartphone manufacturer that has not removed the “chin” from its screens.
For its part, the entire iPhone 13 line could receive sensors from movable cameras or compensate for the movement of the phone to stabilize the image and take pictures with better definition. At the moment, only the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s wide or main sensor can move to compensate for movement. The ultra-wide-angle lens could also get a new six-element autofocus lens compared to the fixed-focus module on the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro / Max.
Apple also uses optical stabilization on the telephoto lens (zoom); in this scenario, it is the lens, not the sensor, that moves to eliminate unwanted movement. The advantage of having stabilization on the sensor is that the sensor can move faster than a lens assembly and can therefore stabilize the image faster and capture photos with fewer errors.
Apart from these changes, the new iPhone 13s are expected to be kept on four models (Mini, 13, 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max), with the same screen sizes and the same “square” design of the iPhone 12. Apple is also expected to introduce a new family of mobile processors (the next name in a row would be the A15 Bionic), although it is unknown whether the company is working on a modified (and much more compact) version of the new M1 processor that is available on MacBook Pros, MacBook Air, Mac Mini, and iMacs.
However, Apple already has a strong performance advantage with A-Series processors that no other manufacturer has managed to beat, so don’t expect significantly higher performance than iPhone 12 or even iPhone 11.
Apple could launch its new iPhones between September and October this year.
