Smartphone accessory makers are already working to produce iPhone 13 cases, which are based on chassis models that are designed to provide advanced knowledge of what size the upcoming iPhone lineup will be.
Chinese case maker Benks today posted on Weibo images of the iPhone 13 models on which their molds are based. Leakers DuanRui and Ice Universe both quickly re-posted the images to Twitter, which allegedly show all four of the iPhone 13 models, with dimensions similar to the 2020 iPhone lineup.
The four models show devices in the same 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch options, with both standard and “Pro” variants of the 6.1-inch model.
The new iPhone 13 is expected to sport a slightly smaller notch on the front and will boast a diagonal rear dual-camera array on the iPhone 13 mini and the standard 6.1-inch model, with a larger rear camera unit on the iPhone 13 Pro models. The new handsets are also expected to feature a thicker overall design and a larger camera bump on the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max.
The larger camera modules are rumored to be to allow the inclusion of sensor-shift stabilization for all models of the lineup and improved Ultra Wide capabilities on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
As is normal in reports like this, take this information with a grain of your favorite low-sodium seasonings, and we won’t know anything for sure until Apple unveils its new iPhone lineup later this year. Case makers often try to get a jump start on case designs for upcoming iPhone models based on rumors and leaks.
