New sources have claimed that the iPhone 5 will launch at WWDC next week, complete with an 8MP camera, multiple internal antenna and, potentially, a Qualcomm chipset.
But, with WWDC just a week away, the rumour mill has shifted back to anticipating that it will launch in June, as is usual for Apple's iPhone refreshes.

It's all getting a bit boring now
We're not expecting big things from the iPhone 5 (or the iPhone 4S, its suggested moniker), with the design remaining largely the same as the iPhone 4, but incorporating a new processor, a better camera and three or four antennas to make it a 'world phone', as Verizon let slip last month ago.
The sources also say that the phone will be SIM-less, which goes against what France Telecom's CEO told reporters last week about a "new standard of SIM card".
Although supposedly set to be launched at WWDC next week, respected leak site Macotakara's sources claim the iPhone 5 release date won't be until the end of July or early August.
They also claim that a major refresh of the handset is slated for launch in early 2012; iPhone 6, anyone?
