iPhone 13 Pro Max dummy hands-on video shows a sleeker notch, larger camera modules
Dummy units are usually based on rumored schematics. It's not unusual for device makers to provide such information to accessory manufacturers months ahead of a product launch.

First, the model has a visibly smaller notch than the iPhone 12 Pro Max - 8.31mm less wide to be more specific. The speaker has been moved out of the notch to the top bezel, and the components of the TrueDepth Camera now sit more closely together.
The other noteworthy change is in the camera array. The new phone is expected to feature an improved ultra-wide-angle camera with an aperture of f/1.8, as opposed to the current model's f/2.4 aperture. The smaller the f-stop number, the larger the opening in the lens to let light in, resulting in better pictures, especially in low light.
A couple of other upgrades are also allegedly on the cards, including larger 2 µm-sized pixels which should again help with capturing more light. Because of these changes, the size of camera modules will likely increase, and a visual representation of that is the dummy unit.
The iPhone 13 series will reportedly be unveiled in September. The phones will likely be fueled by the A15 Bionic chipset and the Pro models may feature 120Hz screens. The 2021 iPhones are also expected to have an under-screen Touch ID scanner. If the leaks materialize, we have no doubt they will be among the best phones of the year.
