Apple's next iPhone, expected to be called the iPhone 13, will feature at least three major new camera and video features, according to a report Tuesday from Bloomberg. Beyond the camera upgrade, the new iPhone lineup will reportedly include "relatively modest upgrades," including a faster A15 chip and smaller display cutout. 

Apple is expected to release four versions of the new phone: the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Mini, the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max, according to earlier rumors. While displays are expected to be the same sizes as in the iPhone 12 lineup, the iPhone 13 screen will reportedly feature a smaller notch and a faster refresh rate for smoother scrolling. 

As for the camera upgrades, the iPhone 13 will include "a video version of the phone's Portrait mode feature, the ability to record video in a higher-quality format called ProRes, and a new filters-like system that improves the look and colors of photos," according to Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the matter. 

The next iPhone launch may be virtual again due to the ongoing pandemic. The phones are expected to go on sale in the coming weeks, according to Bloomberg. 

Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
