This Might Be the 1st Example of the iPhone 5 Camera

If suspicions prove to be true, there's a lot to be excited for you iPhone users looking to upgrade to the next upcoming model, especially if you're one of the growing ranks depending solely on the built-in digital camera. Up above is what is being discussed as the 1st iPhone 5 photo out in the wild (sushi from the Apple cafeteria, anyone?)....

The team at Pocketnow notes this photo "supposedly shot by an Apple engineer eating his lunch at work" has telltale signs this isn't just an iPhone 4 photo, alongside the fact it was recently taken down from its source over at Flickr:

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 2235x2291 (5.12 megapixels), the original picture was a much larger 3264x2448 -- 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.
