iPhone 13: New leaks hint at improved camera lenses, better battery life, A15 chips, and more!

Apple’s iPhone 13 series is reportedly scheduled to launch in September the recent leaks suggest many new and improved features and specifications.

Over the years, Apple’s iPhone series has been quite successful in India, and the leading smartphone company has been cashing on it. Now, Apple is coming up with iPhone 13 series which is reportedly scheduled to launch in September.

The series will include iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The company has often hinted at a few key specs that provide us with a clearer picture of the upcoming iPhone 13 lineup.


“According to a report by Max Weinbach via Everything ApplePro’s YouTube channel, the iPhone 13 will come with a matte black option for the Pro and Pro Max models, a new stainless-steel coating that reduces smudges and fingerprints and a new rear-camera design,” reported news agency IANS.

Several rumors suggest that the upcoming iPhone 13 lineup will follow the same design language as seen in the previous models. However, the latest reports pointed out the design changes like a shrunken notch, portless charging, and an in-display fingerprint scanner.

An India Today report mentioned that iPhone 13 series will ship with a 120Hz LTPO display, improved battery life, and a better set of cameras.

iPhone 13 Specifications and Features

Design: The most significant design change that can be seen is the inclusion of a shrunken notch to incorporate a bigger display. Recently leaked images of the front glass panels of the iPhone 13 lineup showcase three different-sized glass panels with a small hole for the selfie shooter.

Display: The devices in the upcoming lineup are expected to come in 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch sizes.

It is also being speculated that the new series will come with the inclusion of an LTPO display on the Pro models of the iPhone 13 series. Also, these are expected to be 120Hz high-refresh displays that do not need extra components under the display to enable adaptively or, say, scalable refresh rate, reported India Today.

(For the unversed, LTPO is a superior and power-efficient backplane technology that can switch the individual pixel on display on and off. This allows the phones to hold better battery life on the Pro models.)

Charging Port: Apple has reportedly denied the portless design on one of the models and said that iPhone will continue to use the Lightning port in the foreseeable future.

Face ID: The Touch ID was reportedly replaced by Face ID on the iPhone X series. However, it is speculated that Face ID will make a comeback on the iPhone 13 series with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

Battery life: Other reports suggest that iPhones will be a tad bit thicker, to be precise, by approx 0.26mm to make space for a bigger battery. A new and updated chipset might be added to the iPhone 13 series in the form of an A15 Bionic.

Apple’s settlement with Qualcomm reportedly allows it to use Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon X60 5G modem. If integrated into the upcoming A15 Bionic chipset, it will save a lot of battery life. Apart from this, the iPhone 13 will also have support for the latest Wi-Fi compliance, i.e. the Wi-Fi 6E/6.

Camera: Apple never fails to impress its users in this department and reports have hinted towards a six-element Ultra-wide lens on Pro models in iPhone 13 series. However, Apple is also looking into suppliers for a “folded lens” camera that will improve the iPhone 13’s optical camera zoom.

iPhone 13 Price in India

In the end, it all bottles down to ‘Price’, and it continues to remain one of the most compelling attributes about Apple’s iPhone.
