We came across iPhone 13 mini renders several weeks back, which showed the camera model redesign this year. The latest render shows two lenses placed in a diagonal pattern instead of one above another. While it was just a render, so it was not 100 right to be believed.
However, lately, a hand-on image of the iPhone 13 mini is leaked that confirms it has the same design as that of the render, so it grants reliability to the render performed some weeks behind.
Here’s the image of iPhone 13 mini prototype
However, it should note that though both render and model are the same, the device is months away from generation, which means that the result may change. Last week, we had come across a CAD-based render by Xleaks that also had two cameras placed cornerwise. The device is almost the same as the iPhone 12, with the only distinction is the oblique placement of two sensors, somewhat of three.
The purpose behind this latest camera configuration remains hidden. Perhaps this layout is adapted to fit larger sensors which means that camera bumps on iPhone 13 mini will plausibly worsen. The device’s specifications are still unexplained, but leaks suggest that Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide (LTPO) displays will adopt all iPhone 13 series devices.
The layout size will also remain the equivalent, i.e., 6.1-inch for the iPhone 13 pro and 13, 6.7-inches for the Pro Max, and 5.4-inches for the mini.
