Apple introduced the concept of notch into our lives with the iPhone X. Apple, who likes to look down on people and does not care about users’ requests, will finally make a move in this regard with the iPhone 13.
According to the latest report, the new models will have a smaller notch with the redesigned Face ID system. The report also states that all iPhone 13s will have sensor-shifted OIS support introduced with the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
In the report, the new notch design on the iPhone 13 series will integrate the Rx, Tx and flood illuminator into the same camera module, similar to that of a LiDAR scanner on the rear camera module. This will reduce the notch size.
The new Face ID camera module is said to be supplied by Foxconn and LG Innotek, while the front-facing camera modules will be provided by O-Film. Instead of reducing the width, the height of the notch is expected to become less noticeable.
It is reported that the new models will continue to use the 7P lens, which is the same as the iPhone 12 series. However, while Pro models will have a larger CMOS Image Sensor (CIS) that offers better resolution, standard models will have the CIS used in the iPhone 12.
Based on previous rumors, ultra-wide cameras in the Pro series will be upgraded to f / 1.8, 6P (six-element lens) with autofocus. This is a huge improvement compared to the f / 2.4 aperture and 5P Ultra Wide cameras in the previous generation. Let’s see if Apple can break the devil’s leg and really shrink the notch this year.
