Pictures of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 13 which is expected to release in September this year has reportedly been leaked.

A series of images reportedly showing dummy units of the new gadget are being shared on the Chinese social media site Weibo. They show two white iPhone models, with Apple’s new squared-off design and the classic logo on the back.

While the larger of the two phones appears very similar to the iPhone 12 Pro, the smaller one has a different camera array than the iPhone 12. Naturally, many gadget fans on the internet believe this is our first look at the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro.

Eagled-eyed fans reckon the slightly larger camera bump houses the diagonal layout, a 2.5x telephoto zoom, and an upgrade to the super wide-angle lens. According to social media users, the iPhone 13’s camera will have a f1.8 aperture, lower than the current f2.4 on the iPhone 12

Meanwhile, a photo of the front of the device shows a slimmed-down notch – a persistent rumour surrounding the new iPhone models.

Dummy units are often high-quality, non-working mockups that are sent out to other companies – case manufacturers or accessory makers – before launch. This means that (ideally) when the phone is released there will already be a nice selection of things to buy to go with it.Gadget fans say these larger camera bumps point to camera upgrades in the new phones (Weibo)

However, there are plenty of rumours flying around about what Apple has planned for the 2021 version of the iPhone. The rumored charger will not only allow for a quicker recharge but will also support wireless reverse charging.
