The report comes from, which has on occasion accurately reported details of unannounced Apple devices in the past. The Vietnamese tech blog names Wonderful Saigon Electrics, the Vietnamese arm of a China-based mobile camera component supplier, as its source. No other details were provided, though notes that its source at Wonderful Saigon Electrics accurately stated that the iPhone 5 would include an 8-megapixel camera last year while rumors of an upgraded 10-megapixel module were circulating. Apple’s iPhone 5S is expected to launch this summer with an upgraded processor, a new camera and possibly new color options.
