We're inching closer to the time when Apple is going to announce new iPhones. Expectations, as usual, are set for early September. So it's no surprise to start seeing the hardware start cropping up ahead of time. Of course, nothing official. But, for now, it will certainly do.
iPhone 13 mini
The iPhone 13 camera bump size may increase substantially over the current iPhone 12 Pro Max to accommodate bigger lenses and stabilizers, as evidenced by newly-leaked photos.
The “iPhone 13” name will stay, apparently. Rather than skip straight to “iPhone 14,” Apple reportedly has the courage to use the number 13 for the upcoming 2021 iPhone launch.
The iPhone 12 lineup isn't necessarily a slouch when it comes to battery capacity, or life. Still, there's some room for improvement. The iPhone 13 series may do just that.
According to reliable leaker L0vetodream, who posted a photo with some information on Twitter recently, Apple is going to give a significant uptick in battery capacity to its next iPhone lineup. At its peak, the biggest increase will see up to 18% improvement to capacity for the larger iPhone. Meanwhile, even the smallest smartphone is reportedly getting bigger.
Some iPhone 13 models to be released in 2021 may take advantage of LG-made OLED panels with low-power LPTO backplane technology, resulting in a more power-efficient device.
According to a new research note from TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the 2021 iPhone models will come in the same four sizes as the current iPhone 12 lineup, with the Pro models bringing significant upgrades to the ultra-wide cameras.
