Full frame Leica M8 at Photokina – sensor by Panasonic

This anonymous message came from good old Europe:
“I have received confidential “intelligence/gossip” about Leica’s most exciting planned announcement at Photokina.
They’ll unveil the promised full-framed M8 (not M9). Price will remain unchanged from existing M8 (1.33x crop factor), and upgrade will be available for (approximately) 1200 (I assume Euros). Until now nothing new or unknown. The best bit is that the sensor this time is not is manufactured by Kodak, but by Panasonic. This sensor will also eventually get to an R-class DSLR (will NOT be announced yet) and to Panasonic and Olympus, who are both working on a new family of cameras above their existing 4/3 range.”
Is this going to be the Leica 8.2? Not sure if those specs are legit.
