You thought the photo modules of the iPhone 12 were already huge? So wait until you see those of the iPhone 13, which should be even bigger, as shown in a photo of dummy units of smartphones.
Apple has reportedly changed the photo setup of all its new iPhone 13 models compared to the previous generation. In particular, the devices would benefit from larger sensors.
iPhones the same size as iPhone 12s?
Some manufacturers of accessories already use molds and chassis of the upcoming iPhone 13, and in particular, shells, to anticipate the design and production of the protections, which can thus be marketed from the launch of the next generation of iPhone.
And from these dummy units, one can begin to guess the design of the iPhone 13, which should look a lot like the iPhone 12 in terms of dimensions and always with flattened edges. A priori, an iPhone 13 mini is also planned (it has, in any case, a chassis) despite the meager sales made by the iPhone 12 mini.
New in photos for iPhone 13
We can see on the images of these dummy units that the photosensors are larger than on the current iPhones. As a reminder, a larger sensor allows to integrate larger pixels and the camera to capture much more light, especially in low-light environments, and therefore improve the quality of the shots.
We notice that the two photo modules have been replaced diagonally on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini rather than vertically.
As a reminder, other leaks suggest that the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini will benefit from the same stabilization as the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max and that the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max will benefit from an ultra-wide-angle sensor with autofocus.
