Ahead of the new iPhone 13 series expected to launch this Fall, seven references of the next-generation smartphone models are found on the Eurasian Economic Commission (ECC).
Last year, iPhone 12 launch was delayed by a month due to COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns and social distancing precautionary measures. However, industry sources report that the next-generation iPhone series will be introduced as per the usual September time, this year.
Seven new iPhone 13 references are found on the EEC database
Consomac reports that the EEC has published seven different filings of the new smartphone models compatible with iOS 14 because the Russian regulatory authority requires companies to register all hardware using encryption technology in its database.
This discovery is in compliance with the other news of Apple iPhone manufacturing gearing up for iPhone 13 launch in September: TSMC’s A15 Bionic chip is in the production phase, Samsung and LG have begun production of OLED display panels, and Foxconn is offering employees bonuses at its assembly units to encourage them to meet working hours. In addition, it is also reported that Apple is putting pressure on VCM (voice coil motor) suppliers to deliver the required number of components for the new iPhone 13 line-up is expected to feature an improved camera system.
Although the filings only give us the potential model numbers without any other specific design details, several credible sources claim that the new iPhone 13 series will also have four models including a 5.4-inch mini variant, despite the size’s lowest sales in the iPhone 12 series. The new smartphone models will have a smaller notch, image-stabilization sensor, larger battery and thicker frame, and larger camera bumps. In addition, the Pro models will come with a 120Hz refresh rate for always-on display and lower power consumption.
