After our first look at the iPhone 15 and 15 Pro this month, a new leak has surfaced of the iPhone 15 Ultra — and it looks every bit the premium high-end phone we’ve come to expect.
According to the CAD render shared by notorious leaker Ice Universe, the iPhone 15 Ultra is the thickest iPhone since the iPhone 4s, with a depth of 8.25mm, a significant increase over the iPhone 14 Pro Max’s 7.85mm. However, including the camera bump, Claimed by the Ice Universe the iPhone 15 Ultra will be 11.84mm, which is thinner than the iPhone 14 Pro Max (12.03mm). The overall size of the phone will be slightly thinner as well, based on Ice Universe’s specs:
iPhone 15 Ultra: 159.86 × 76.73 × 8.25mm
iPhone 14 Ultra: 160.7mm x 77.6mm x 7.85mm
Based on the images, the camera bump itself will be thinner than the one on the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which could make the phone more ergonomic. The iPhone 14 Pro Max is quite heavy, mostly due to the giant camera bump that protrudes more than 4mm from the back case.
While the display is likely to be the same 6.7 inches as the iPhone 14 Pro Max, the bezels appear to be significantly reduced, giving the phone a deeper feel. In addition, Ice Universe claims that the sides will move from stainless steel to a titanium alloy like the Apple Watch Ultra and it will not have physical buttons, the two features that were previously rumored. And like the rest of the line, the Lightning port will be replaced by USB-C.
Earlier this week, 9to5Mac reported that the exclusive color of the iPhone 15 Pro line will be deep red, although it is unclear whether Apple will also offer a titanium colored shell to match the Apple Watch Ultra.
