Apple is about to take the tech game to an unprecedented level with the iPhone 15 Ultra. The 3D model revealed on the channel by Lewis Hilsenteger is the closest look yet at the next-generation iPhone, and the changes that are expected to happen.
Hilsenteger explains, "Now I can't guarantee that this is exactly what it's going to look like. I've been told that this is what it's going to look like, and it is backed up by a number of rumors and leaks that you've probably seen floating around." So, let's talk about what we know. For starters, the iPhone 15 Ultra will include a USB-C port replacing Lightning, and the design of the handset itself will be groundbreaking. The most significant change is demonstrated in the width of the bezels, as Hilsenteger demonstrated in the video. According to Hilsenteger's measurements, the bezels will drop to a mere 1.55mm, which is a big improvement compared to the 2.17mm frame on the iPhone 14 Pro Max. The phone itself is likely to be a little narrower, which will give the device an even more futuristic feel.
Hilsenteger also measured the handset and found that the iPhone 15 Ultra model is 76.66mm wide compared to the 14 Pro Max's 77.68mm. The difference in size is minor, but the iPhone 15 Ultra may have a slight curvature where the phone's edge wraps around the front and back panels, making it feel more comfortable to hold. There is also speculation about some significant upgrades to the camera. Although the camera array looks almost identical to the iPhone 14 Pro Max, Hilsenteger explains that the new phone's camera heft could be concealed within its slightly thicker body, possibly indicating a larger camera sensor or a beefier battery. But that's not all. Hilsenteger also mentioned that the model's brushed metal shell and matte finish on the back are impressive and stealthy, making it an excellent addition to anyone's luxury tech collection. Even the familiar controls on the side of the handset will come with a new twist. The volume controls are no longer individual buttons, but a long rocker, and the clicky silent switch is now a button.
We still have a few months to wait before the iPhone 15's expected launch date in September, but we're thrilled to see what Apple has in store for us. Additionally, we're looking forward to discovering the company's next big reveal during WWDC 2023, where Apple plans to unveil a mixed-reality headset. Until then, we'll be counting down the days until the release of the coveted iPhone 15 Ultra.
