Doubts raised over 'iPhone 13' quad-camera rumor
Prominent leaker Jon Prosser has cast doubt on a leak claiming to detail the camera layout of the "iPhone 13," saying that there's a "0% chance" of that layout in the 2021 flagship.
On May 28, an image was shared on Twitter by a leaker known as "Fudge" showing what they described was the planned camera bump design of the "iPhone 13." Rather than a triple-camera setup, as used in the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, Fudge claimed Apple would instead switch to a four-lens arrangement, with an added LiDAR module below the bump itself.
In response to a query from a follower about how the original posting of the rumor hedged bets by suggesting it may not be true this early in the product's development, Prosser added "we're talking 0% chance of this being it." Prosser also added there "was no reason to post this image."
Fudge claimed the "iPhone 13" will have a 64-megapixel wide lens camera with 1x optical and 6x digital zooms, a 40-megapixel telephoto camera with 3x to 5x optical and 15 to 20x digital zoom, a 40-megapixel ultra-wide with 0.25x "optical reverse zoom," and a 40-megapixel anamorphic lens sporting a 2.1:1 ratio.
If true, this would represent a considerable increase in camera resolution for Apple, as the iPhone 11 Pro's cameras all use 12-megapixel sensors.
