While Apple is planning to release the iPhone 12 lineup on the upcoming Apple September event, Fudge a leaker has already shared leaks about Apple’s 2021 iPhone 13 camera setup.
He shared a design that has a four-camera setup as rumored in the iPhone 12. But in addition to that, there is a small circular unit beneath it which is supposed to be the LiDar 4.0. He claims the 4 camera setup will be as follows :
- A 64-megapixel wide-angle lens with 1x optical zoom and 6x digital zoom
- A 40-megapixel telephoto lens with 3x-5x optical zoom and 15-20x digital zoom
- A 64-megapixel anamorphic lens for video capture (2.1:1)
- A 40-megapixel .25x min ultra-wide-angle lens with optical reverse zoom
The iPhone 11 Pro models, which is currently Apple’s most expensive iPhone have a 3 camera setup. They are all 12MP sensors with telephoto, wide-angle and ultra-wide capabilities. The next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 12 is rumored to have a similar 3 camera setup with higher megapixels and a new LiDar sensor.
We cannot guarantee the legitimacy of this leak because iPhone 13 releases only after a year and there is so much time for changes and tweaks. Also, the overall design does not look so “Apple-ish”. Currently, Apple is rocking with its triple camera setup. And they will most probably stick to that for about two more years since they won’t change the whole setup every year. But it could probably increase the quality of the cameras which will be coming in 2021.
