Leaked Photo Suggests iPhone 5 To Have 8 MP Camera

Information about the next version of iPhone, iPhone 5 or what so ever the tech pope Steve jobs is going to name it, are leaking in bits and pieces. An Apple employee uploaded a photo taken from an iPhone with 8 Megapixels resolution. The EXIF information suggests that the photo is captured using an iPhone 4, but iPhone 4 has a 4 Megapixels camera. So this means Apple employees are obviously testing iPhone 5 with 8 MP cam in the guise of iPhone 4. Here is the photo uploaded by the employee

This (very attractive) photo claims to have been taken by an iPhone 4, but the rest of its EXIF data tells a different story: although the image has been cropped to 2235×2291 (5.12 megapixels), the original picture was a much larger 3264×2448 — or just shy of eight megapixels. What’s more, the lens was recorded as a 4.3mm f/2.4, which is closer to that of a point-and-shoot than the iPhone 4’s actual 3.85mm f/2.8.

..there’s one compelling piece of evidence which suggests that this is indeed a genuine iPhone 5 photo: it was supposedly shot by an Apple engineer eating his lunch at work.
