LX6 to appear in September 2012 with larger sensor?

According to this rumour/interview:

http://www.techradar.com/news/photography-video-capture/cameras/panasonic-lx-series-to-have-larger-sensor-1030532?src=rss&attr=all

I love my LX3, mainly for its fabulous lens, not so much for its sensor which is unfortunately suffering from "digital rot".

The LX5 seemed like a good camera too at launch but I wasn't really tempted to upgrade. Now an LX6 with a 4/3" sensor would be a completely different story.

If Panasonic is willing to put a 4/3" sensor and an outstanding zoom lens in a package the size of the LX3/LX5, with a silent leaf shutter, it could have a very interesting product in its hands.
