Apple: iPhone 13 pro and iPhone mini appears in leaked image

A post on the Chinese social media platform Weibo attracted attention last Thursday (April 22), revealing what appears to be the architecture of the rumored new iPhone 13 pro and iPhone mini. The unit, which has already been the subject of other rumors and leaks, is depicted in a picture of a potential rear prototype.

Although the cell phone in the picture has a rather refined finish, it is still unclear if it is a working prototype or merely a demonstrative version for testing.

However, the image confirms other reports about the device’s camera configuration and design language, which had previously been seen in digital renders. Here’s an example of a comparison:

Similarly, the rumor claims that the smartphone in the picture is a teaser of what to expect from the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, the most powerful models in the future line. On the other hand, because Apple’s sales of the iPhone 12 mini were far below estimates, the latest mini edition could also replace the iPhone SE 3.

It’s worth noting that, as with any rumor, several aspects of the product might change before its official launch, so all that’s left to do now is wait for Apple to confirm the news.
