Story highlights
  • iPhone 13 is speculated to come with a larger battery to support 120Hz display on some models.
  • It will sport a redesigned camera bump and a smaller notch at the front.
  • New CAD images provide a visual representation of all these speculations about the smartphone.

iPhone 13 is one of the most hotly anticipated impending smartphone launches for this year. So, it is not a surprise that many speculations around the net-gen iPhone have already surfaced on the internet. However, a new leak might be our best look yet at what is to come from the Apple store later this year.

In a new video, complete with 3D CAD images of the iPhone 13 have made their way online. The video confirms most of the rumours surrounding the iPhone 13 so far, giving us a pretty good idea of how Apple will shape its iPhone lineup this year.

The video has been shared by the YouTube channel Front Page Tech (FPT). It shows the iPhone 13 with a smaller notch and a redesigned camera bump, which has been predicted for the smartphone so far. Though much of the speculations were on paper till now, thanks to the video, it is good to have a visual representation of the same.

The most important update, however, remains to be the larger battery life on the upcoming iPhone. This was speculated earlier this month, and the new video sheds light on the same yet again.

It mentions how the reason for the iPhone 12 series not having 120Hz displays last year was the limited battery capacity on the phones. Now that Apple has decided to bring the feature on the iPhone 13 lineup, there is practically no other way to make it work other than increasing the battery capacity.

With this, the iPhone 13 will also have thicker frames than before, only to accommodate the larger batteries. The same can be seen in the CAD images of the iPhone 13 shared in the video. While the battery capacity will be increased in every model, Apple is expected to bring the 120Hz screen only to iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

It is expected that Apple will launch four models under its iPhone 13 lineup this September. These will be the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. From what has been speculated so far on the Cupertino tech major's future plans, this will be the last iteration of the iPhone 13 mini, post which the model will be discontinued altogether.
