iPhone 5 eight-megapixel camera confirmed?

Reports that the iPhone 5 will feature a much improved camera were seemingly nigh-on confirmed today, with the news that Apple has commissioned eight-megapixel snappers from two long-standing manufacturer partners.

According to a report from the Taiwan Economic News, brought to the attention of us in the West by Apple Insider, Largan and Genius will be supplying the lenses for the next-gen Apple smartphone, having also done the honours for the five-megapixel number in the iPhone 4.

Other unconfirmed features also rumoured to be making their way to the iPhone 5 include 4G support for US editions, as well as enhanced voice command functionality.

Apple is also believed to have opted to include voguish Near Field Communications technology that will allow owners to use their handset to pay for low-ticket goods by swiping it over a reader and have gone for a four-inch screen this time around.

The launch date for the handset is even less set in stone than the spec sheet, with mooted due dates ranging from mid-October to as early as September 15th.
