Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 12 in fall this year. Reports in the past couple of months have already detailed what we should expect from the company's upcoming series of smartphones. Now, a new report gives us details about the iPhone 13 that is expected to launch in the fall of 2021.

Japanese blog site Macotakara (via Mac Rumours) has obtained a rough 3D printed mockup of a 5.4-inch ‌iPhone‌ from ‘Alibaba sources' that is expected to be coming in 2021. The 3D printed mockup of the 5.4-inch iPhone shows that the iPhone 13 will come with a notch-free design. The True Depth camera, which is housed inside the notch will be located in the front centre of the phone's display. The report states that Apple could use Samsung's Under Panel Sensor technology for the same.

In addition to this, the iPhone 13, as per the report, may come with a bottom-of-screen camera and ultra-thin bezels. The mock-up has five holes at the back hinting towards the phone getting a quad-rear camera setup. This aligns with another report by ”choco_bit” aka “Fudge” last month which said that the iPhone 13 could get a quad camera setup with LiDAR sensors at the back.

The mockup model also shows an interesting detail about the upcoming iPhone 13. Reports in the past have hinted that Apple is planning to replace the Lightning connector with a USB Type-C port. Now, the report by the blog site says that the company could be making that switch with the iPhone 13.

The report notes that this design is one of the prototypes under development. This indicates that the company could try out other prototypes before settling on a final design. This also indicates that the iPhone 13 design that we get to see next year is radically different from the mockup cited in this report. Safe to say that it is too soon to comment on the details pertaining to the iPhone 13. We will keep an eye out for details and update you as soon as we have an update.
