A pair of supposedly leaked images posted to Twitter this week could offer one of the first looks at Apple’s upcoming “iPhone 13 Pro,” though sources’ claims of a new rose gold color leaves the authenticity of the photos in question.
Majin Bu was told that the iPhone unit bears a — very dark — rose gold color, though it can just as easily be a graphite or black model under warm lighting.
While the source’s color claims are debatable, there is a noticeable distinction between the supposedly leaked unit and iPhone 12 Pro; the rear camera bump, which includes three lenses, True Tone flash, LiDAR scanner and microphone, is proportionally much larger than current models. Even accounting for the photos’ skewed perspective, the camera package runs nearly half the phone’s width.
Previous reports and rumors have suggested Apple will stretch the bump on both “iPhone 13 Pro” and, to a lesser extent, “iPhone 13 Pro Max” to fit larger camera modules in the rear-facing array. A similar increase in size was seen in purported case leaks in July.
Majin Bu is relatively new to the Apple leaks world, but he was first to reveal new iPhone 12 silicone case colors for in April prior to their public introduction.
In addition to an enlarged camera bump, “iPhone 13 Pro” is anticipated to sport a significantly reduced TrueDepth “notch.” Photos of allegedly leaked hardware, including a front glass panel or screen protector, and mockups reveal the smaller notch is in part accomplished by a relocated ear speaker that sits at the top edge of iPhone’s display.
