8-megapixel camera and no SIM card on the fifth-generation iPhone… in August?

According to its usual anonymous source, Macotakara assures that the new phone will maintain a design very similar to the current iPhone 4 and that although it could incorporate the A5 processor responsible for the increase in power of the iPad 2, it has not been able to confirm whether it will use the single or dual-core version. What does seem confirmed (within the rumor, of course) is the replacement of the current 5 megapixel camera by an 8 megapixel camera and the absence of a SIM card to make it compatible with any type of GSM and CDMA networks thus avoiding the need to market two versions in the U.S., one for AT&T and another for Verizon.

Not content with this, from the Japanese blog they also dare to anticipate that the iPhone 5 will be launched during the spring 2012 and that, following the unwritten tradition of changing the design every two generations, it will take on a lighter and thinner appearance thanks in part to the thinner low-temperature polysilicon LCD screens manufactured by Sharp (according to another rumour), with lower power consumption and even higher pixel density.
