According to the latest reports from foreign media, the upcoming iPhone 13 has a thicker body than the iPhone 12, and the iPhone 13’s camera projection will also be higher than the previous generation.
Some foreign media have already obtained the schematic diagram of the iPhone 13. Using this information, we can simulate a comparison of the protrusion and thickness of the camera below.
Camera protrusion difference:
iPhone 13-7.57 mm
iPhone 13 Pro-7.57 mm
iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro-7.4 mm
The increase in overall thickness may be due to Apple’s desire to use larger batteries in newer models.
According to previous reports,
it is said that the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max use Samsung’s 120Hz LTPO OLED screen and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X60 5G modem. Running these two products at the same time will mean huge battery consumption, so a larger battery is needed to offset these negative effects.
The camera bump may be due to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max using sensor shift optical image stabilization technology, although a previous report stated that all models released later this year will use this camera hardware upgrade.
Another reason is that the lower-priced iPhone 13 model has a larger camera bump because it has a LiDAR scanner. The more expensive iPhone 13 Pro model may use a larger sensor, which explains the increase in camera bumps.
