First look at iPhone 13 design shows new camera setup and smaller notch

The leak: Apple’s 5.4 and 6.1-inch iPhone models in 2021 will make a number of changes to the iPhone 12 design, according to MySmartPrice (100% accurate for 4 rumors).


  • After years of stagnation, the notch is finally shrinking horizontally…and MySmartPrice speculates that there could be two front-facing cameras
  • On the rear cameras, Apple has adopted a new pattern for the dual-camera setup: but there’s no LiDAR sensor as some sources rumored
  • The dimensions of the iPhone 13 will be identical to iPhone 12: 146.7×71.5×7.6mm

Our take: I don’t buy the dual front-facing cameras that is speculated in this piece, but I do dig the new camera look on the back. It’s a subtle change but it really makes the design look fresh, even though it’s just a minor revision to iPhone 12.
