Upcoming iPhone 13 series will feature a smaller notch with redesigned Face ID system according to the latest report for Digitimes. The report also says that all the iPhone 13 models will get sensor-shift OIS that was introduced with the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The new notch design in the iPhone 13 series will integrate Rx, Tx and flood illuminator into the same camera module, similar to that of a LiDAR scanner in the back camera module so the notch size will become smaller, says the report.
The new Face ID camera module is said to be supplied by Foxconn and LG Innotek, while the front-facing camera modules will be supplied by O-Film. Instead of reducing the width, the height of the notch is expected to get smaller making it less noticeable.
The iPhone 13 series will reportedly continue to use the 7P lens, same as the iPhone 12 series, but the Pro models will feature a larger CMOS Image Sensor (CIS) offering better resolution, while the standard models will feature CIS used in the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Based on earlier rumours, the ultra-wide cameras on the Pro series will be upgraded to an f/1.8, 6P (six-element lens) with autofocus, which is a huge improvement compared to the f/2.4, 5P Ultra Wide cameras on the current iPhone 12 Pro models.
