iPhone 5 sources add to 8MP camera & September launch rumours

Rumours that the iPhone 5 will drop in September got a shade more credible today, after shadowy sources gave us another inkling as to Apple’s plans for its next-gen blockbuster smartie.

Unnamed sources familiar with matters down at Cupertino have purportedly also told business news source Bloomberg that the handset will feature an eight-megapixel snapper – up from the iPhone 4’s five-megapixel number – and the same A5 processor as the iPad 2.

This marks the umpteenth purported leak of those two particular specifications, suggesting to us at least that they’re almost certain to be on board.

Bloomberg’s tech deep throats also reanimated long-in-the-tooth rumours that Apple is working on cut-price edition of the iPhone.

The cheaper handset – informally dubbed the iPhone Nano - will reportedly use "chips and displays of similar quality to today's iPhone 4” and is aimed at markets in the developing world.

News of the leaks comes after Apple opted to delay the release of the iPhone 5 for reasons that have yet to become clear. The phone had been expected to land this month at the WWDC conference.
