New Image Supposedly Shows iPhone 13 Dummy Models With New Camera Layouts
A new image posted to Twitter appears to show iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max dummy units.
We’ve seen dummy units before, but what makes this particular image so interesting is the redesigned camera layout on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.
We’ve heard rumors over the last few weeks that Apple would be changing the layout of the cameras on Apple’s iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini when compared to the current iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini. The diagonal camera lenses are shown in this new image, shared by leaker Sonny Dickson.
All of Apple’s iPhone 13 models are expected to benefit from the same sensor-shift image stabilization that the iPhone 12 Pro Max offered, so it’s possible that could be the reason behind the move.
If all goes according to previous years we expect Apple to announce the iPhone 13 lineup at some point during September, with a launch coming soon after. At least the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are expected to ship with new 120Hz ProMotion displays, while larger batteries are expected across the board.

Last year’s iPhone 12 announcement was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but with things in a better place this year we don’t expect that to happen. That being said, a worldwide semiconductor shortage could see the iPhones launch in fewer countries on day one than might normally be the case.
