Apples iPhone 13 isn’t set to be announced for almost a year but that doesn’t mean that things aren’t afoot. According to a new report Apple already has designs to offer a device that’s slightly thicker than the iPhone 12, but with a smaller notch than currently used.

The rest of the external design however, including the rear camera bump, is expected to remain the same.

In terms of how much thicker the new iPhones will be, Macotakara believes that we can expect an additional 0.26mm to be added to the current chassis.

As information for Chinese suppliers, the next iPhone 13 will continue to adopt the iPhone 12’s four-product enclosure design, and while the height and width will remain unchanged, the thickness will increase by 0.26 mm, sources said.

Also of particular interest is the news that the iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro will have the same size camera bump on the back, suggesting that the latter will have the same sensor-shift image stabilization as the larger model. That wasn’t the case with the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

The iPhone 13 Pro’s rear camera unit is the same size as the iPhone 13 Pro Max, so the wide-angle camera may have sensor-shifted optical image stabilization.

Apple isn’t likely to announce anything about the iPhone 13 lineup until September at the earliest, with some suggesting that the company will go with another October launch. The iPhone 12 launch was a few weeks later than normal due to the design and production issues caused by the pandemic.
