What you need to know

  • New iPhone 13 Pro 3D renders show a smaller notch and larger camera bump.
  • The device itself appears to be slightly thicker than iPhone 12 Pro.

With Apple set to announce the iPhone 13 lineup later this year, we're seeing more and more leaks relating to the devices themselves. The latest sees claimed iPhone 13 Pro 3D renders appear online, complete with smaller notch, larger camera bump, and more.

Shared by 91mobiles, the images appear similar to recent iPhone 13 renders but this time we get to see the Pro model for the first time.

According to the report, and backed up by the images, the iPhone 13 Pro handset will feature a smaller notch as has been rumored already. The same overall design from iPhone 12 Pro will also be in play.

As you can see from the renders provided to us, the iPhone 13 Pro will indeed come with a slightly smaller notch compared to the one seen on the iPhone 12 Pro. Apple has managed to reduce the size of the notch by moving the earpiece above the sensors. To recall, previous iPhones saw the earpiece aligned with the front camera and Face ID sensors. The rest of the design seems largely similar to its predecessor. The upcoming iPhone 13 Pro will retain the boxy frame and triple rear cameras.

Notably, it also appears that the camera bump around the back is now larger than before, possibly mimicking the bump from last year's iPhone 12 Pro Max. That could potentially mean improved cameras this year, at least for the iPhone 13 Pro model. The device itself is also thought to be thicker than last year's model, too. The new one is said to measures in at 146.7mm x 71.5mm x 7.6mm which is around 0.2mm thicker than iPhone 12 Pro.

If all goes according to plan I expect Apple to announce its iPhone 13 lineup towards the end of September. Until then, iPhone 12 Pro is still the best iPhone money can buy.
