The rumours, however, doesn’t stop at the iPhone 12, iPhone 13 has also been in the leaks now showing a purported wireframe of the design.
Apple’s iPhone has been an iconic series of smartphones since its debut. An iPhone comes with a premium finish, glass sandwiched body and specs to match. Not to mention the iOS features on the device is an interconnected ecosystem of devices. The company will be announcing the iPhone 12 series a couple of months from now. The device which has been in the rumour mill for a while now is believed to tout great news specs, latest-gen iOS and a refreshed design.
We have put together a concept design of the iPhone 13 with the latest design scheme that Apple will set in the upcoming iteration of the iPhone. The iPhone 13 will come in 4 variants two in the category of regular series and two in the pro series.
Apple iPhone 13 Design and Display
The concept design focuses on the more premium iPhone 13 Pro. The round edges of yesteryear will give way to a more rectangular looking device reminiscent of iPhone 5 models. There will be thin bezels around the phone and the notch will consume much less space. The back of the device will be matte glass-like texture found in the iPhone 11 Pro models. The display will now stretch to the edge at the bottom of the device.
The iPhone 13 Pro featured in the concept will be fitted a QHD+ resolution. The display itself will be a 6.1-inch affair just like the iPhone 12. There will be a 6.4 inch variant of the iPhone 13 with a “Max” monicker at the end. Both the models will feature an LTPO OLED panel and offer refresh rates of 120Hz which can be turned on. The display panels will also feature HDR support as well.
Apple iPhone 13 Camera
This is one department where the iPhone 13 shine best. Competition is catching up on the camera game and Apple needs to pull the hat out of the rabbit to outshine which the iPhone 13 will take care of. iPhone 13 Pro is expected to feature quad cameras and a LiDAR sensor like the iPad Pro.
Four new sensors will take care of all the photography and videography heavy duty. The device is rumoured to house a primary 64 Megapixel sensor with a wide-angle lens. This will be accompanied by a 12 Megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide-angle lens and another 12 Megapixel sensor with a telephoto lens. There will be a fourth one for macro photography and all these modules will sit in housing alongside the LiDAR sensor. For videography, the Apple iPhone 13 will allow for 8K recording at up to 60fps.
Apple iPhone 13 Specs
With the A14 Bionic chip inching close to production as well as the iPhone 12 line, the iPhone 13 will be fitted with a new series of high-end SoC. The device is believed to run on an A15/A15 Bionic/A15 Fusion or what the nomenclature Apple decides and 8GB of RAM as the base option—the highest being 12GB. The storage option will start at 128GB this time and go all the way up to 1 TB. iPhone 13 will run the latest version of iOS (or iPhone OS as rumours suggest this nomenclature will be announced in WWDC 2020.)
iOS 14 was announced with a slew of features in the yearly Apple WWDC. The public beta will be available from July and the official version will arrive in fall this year. The upcoming iPhone 12 is set to feature iOS 14, so by our estimate we should be aiming for iOS 15 for the iPhone 13.
Apple iPhone 13 Price and Release Date
As with every generation of the iPhone, pricing will be a premium. The iPhone 12 might see a price hike due to the scarcity of parts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The situation is believed to subside by the time iPhone 13 arrives and most likely see a starting price of $999 for the base iPhone 13 Pro model.
The release date as the Apple tradition goes will be sometime around September in 2021 although the theme might change and the device could launch earlier.
