Analyst: iPhone 13 models to sport same wide-angle lens as the iPhone 12 line-up

In a note to clients — as noted by MacRumors — analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the upcoming iPhone 13 line will sport the the same wide-angle lens as the current iPhone 12 series, offering no tangible improvements to one of the three lenses on the upcoming smartphone.

He adds that the ‌iPhone 13‌ mini, ‌iPhone 13‌, and ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro will feature the same 7P wide-angle lens with a ƒ1.6 aperture as their respective ‌iPhone 12‌ counterparts. The larger ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro Max will have a ƒ1.5 aperture wide-angle lens, a marginal increase compared to the ƒ1.6 aperture on the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

Some other rumors about the upcoming iPhones, expected to launch in September or October:

° All models will feature a smaller notch.

° The two Pro models will be equipped with LTPO display technology for a 120Hz refresh rate and always-on display.

° They’ll have improved camera capabilities for astrophotography, stronger MagSafe magnets, and a finer matte finish on the back

° They could include a 1TB storage option for some models and LiDAR Scanners across the entire lineup.
