Chinese Case Maker Shares iPhone 13 Chassis Models on Weibo

Smartphone accessory makers are already busy producing iPhone 13 cases based on chassis models that supposedly give them advance knowledge of how Apple's upcoming flagship devices will be sized, and one brand has taken the unusual decision to publicly share the models they're working off on social media.

Well-known Chinese case maker Benks today posted on Weibo images of the models on which their moulds are based. Leakers DuanRui and Ice Universe were both quick to re-post the images to Twitter, and the pictures show all four of the ‌iPhone 13‌ models that we are expecting, with dimensions similar to the 2020 iPhone lineup. The four devices come in the same 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch options, with both standard and "Pro" variants of the 6.1-inch model.

In terms of appearance, the main difference this year will be a slightly smaller notch on the front, a diagonal rear dual-camera array on the ‌iPhone 13‌ mini and the standard 6.1-inch, and a larger rear camera unit on the ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro models. Schematics seen by MacRumors have revealed that the upcoming iPhones will feature a thicker overall design and a larger camera bump on the ‌‌iPhone 13‌‌ Pro and Pro Max.

The larger camera modules are likely due to the rumored inclusion of sensor-shift stabilization for all models of the lineup and improved Ultra Wide capabilities on the ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro and ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro Max.

Case makers often base their initial case designs for upcoming iPhones based on leaks and rumors, so the images may not be true representations. However, all the information we've garnered so far would suggest there's good reason to believe they are accurate.

For the lowdown on everything we know about the new features and improvements coming with the ‌iPhone 13‌, which Apple is expected to launch in its usual September timeframe, be sure to check out our dedicated guide.

Generally the S lines age better. This shouldn’t be any different.
