The iPhone 13 continues to unveil. Several months before the keynote, a leak lifted the veil on the design of the standard model’s camera. This year, Apple visibly has the two sensors diagonally. The renderings also show a reduced notch compared to previous years.
This April 13, our colleagues from MySmartPrice published design renderings showing the design of the standard iPhone 13. The Indian blog claims that these renderings come directly “From industry sources”. We imagine that these are employees of the firm’s production lines.
As expected, Apple is not going not introduce radical visual changes on its iPhone 13. The range will again be distinguished by flat edges, like the iPhone 12, and a screen whose borders are thin and uniform. The standard iPhone 13 measures 146.7 × 71.5 × 7.6mm, the article goes on.

IPhone 13 renderings confirm the reduced notch
On the other hand, Apple would have found a way to reduce notch size. As the renderings from MySmartPrice show, the notch that houses the front camera for selfies and the sensors needed for Face ID is narrower than on previous generations of iPhones. Many leaks that have appeared on the web in recent months, including a stolen photo, abound in the same direction. To cut back on this element, the Cupertino giant now places the speaker above the TrueDepth sensors, in the upper border, rather than in the center of the notch.
The renderings also show the new layout of the square photo block. Rather than placing the photo lenses vertically on top of each other, Apple places the sensors diagonally. We imagine that this new placement is part of Apple’s plan to reduce the thickness of the block. Note the absence of Lidar scanner within the camera. Rumors say, however, that the scanner present on the iPhone 12 Pro will be offered across the range.
As a reminder, Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 13 sometime in September 2021. The chip shortage affecting the entire industry could force the firm to postpone the release of its smartphones. We’ll tell you more as soon as possible. While waiting for more information, feel free to give your opinion in the comments below.
