We’re still several months away from the release of Apple’s iPhone 12 lineup, but that hasn’t stopped information on the iPhone 13 from popping up already. An often reliable leaker by the name of Fudge (@choco_bit) has leaked some information on the 2021 iteration of the iPhone, specifically what the camera setup will be like.
Fudge revealed that the iPhone 13 will have a four camera array, which will pack the following listed features:
- 64-megapixel wide-angle lens with 1x optical zoom and 6x digital zoom
- 40-megapixel telephoto lens with 3x-5x optical zoom and 15-20x digital zoom
- 64-megapixel anamorphic lens for video capture (2.1:1)
- 40-megapixel .25x min ultra wide-angle lens with optical reverse zoom
- LiDAR 4.0
However, the leaker also goes on to say that this information should be taken with a “huge amount of salt,” which is supposedly due to the source of the rumor. It’s also likely that this camera layout will change considering it is obviously in the very early stages of design. Apple will likely be taking feedback on how the iPhone 12 camera is received, and use that to further tweak what is coming with the iPhone 13 camera.
As for what we know about the iPhone 12 camera lineup, the higher end models are expected to continue the triple-lens camera setup. The lower models, on the other hand, will feature a dual-lens setup. It’s expected that the 2021 lineup of phones will follow a similar pattern, though we’ll see if a quadruple-lens camera setup shakes things up at all. We’ll bring you more information as soon as it becomes available.
