At the beginning of the week, the Macotakara published alleged models of the “iPhones 12” revealing little news – among them, a new positioning for the SIM card tray. Now, the website has skipped the timeline: yes, what you see below is a supposed model of “IPhone 13”.
To begin with, whenever we talk about models (or dummies, for the connoisseurs), it is good to treat the matter with caution: the website itself makes it clear that the unit was obtained from Alibaba, the famous Chinese trade website – that is, we may be dealing with a “legitimate” model, used by some company in the Apple production chain … or not.
Anyway, considering the reputation of the Macotakara and the fact that the dummy follows fan rumors about the future of iPhones, it’s worth taking a look at it. And the model brings two elements much requested by Apple smartphone users – starting with a door USB-C, which would replace the Lightning entry.
The rumors about the replacement, however, encounter some obstacles – starting, of course, with the huge ecosystem of Lightning-based accessories formed by manufacturers in recent years. In addition, the buzz about an iPhone without any physical ports is already too strong to be ignored; if Apple is actually planning something like that, it would make no sense to transition to USB-C for just a year or two and then completely eliminate the port.
The second “information” brought by the model is even more awaited: the complete removal of the cutout (or notch, as you wish). According to the report, the elements of Face ID would be “hidden” under the screen, based on the technology Under Panel Sensor gives Samsung.
In addition, the dummy it doesn’t bring much news: the edges around the screen appear to be smaller, and the rear camera module has five perforations. The model has a 5.4-inch screen – indicating that, if genuine, it represents the successor to the supposedly smaller “iPhone 12” that will be presented this year. Yes, the rumors industry is very advanced.
So, what do you think?
