‘iPhone 17 Slim’ Could Move Rear Cameras to Top Center in Biggest Redesign Since iPhone X

Information announced today that Apple plans to launch an all-new high-end iPhone 17 model next year, and there was one detail worth pointing out: the rear cameras could be moved to the “center upper” of the device.

The iPhone’s rear camera system has been positioned in the upper left corner of the device since the original 2007 model, so moving the cameras to the top center of the device would be a noticeable change. Some popular Android smartphones have top-center positioned rear cameras, like Google’s Pixel 8 Pro.

The report states that the new iPhone 17 model will feature a “major redesign” similar to the iPhone X, so it seems Apple has big plans for this device. With the report claiming that the device could be priced higher than the Pro Max model, which starts at $1,199, it may end up being the “iPhone Ultra” that has been talked about for the past few years.

Here’s everything the report mentions about the thinner iPhone 17:

  • Between a 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screen (probably 6.5-inch)
  • A “significantly thinner” design with an aluminum frame
  • The rear cameras have been moved to the “top center” of the device
  • A higher price than the Pro Max model in the iPhone range
  • Improved front camera
  • A narrower dynamic island
  • A19 chip

Read our initial coverage of the report for more details on the device.
