Portuguese language blog BlogdoiPhone leaked reported screenshots of the iOS 5.1 ‘pre-GM’ (via MacRumors) that it claimed to receive from a local carrier. We already postulated iOS 5.1 is most likely going to launch with the iPad 3 on the rumored March 7 date. Today’s leaked screenshots reveal two more features in iOS 5.1, such as a new camera button on the home screen, and Japanese Siri.

On earlier versions of iOS, double clicking the home button revealed the camera button that you can click, but today’s leaked screenshots (above, left) show iOS 5.1 will now have a camera button that slides up to turn on the camera. This change eliminates accidental clicks.

Earlier this week, we discovered that Siri revealed the Japanese language is on its way to the voice-activated assistant. Today’s leaked screenshots also show that Japanese Siri support is included in iOS 5.1 (above, right).

iOS 5.1 GM will most likely launch with the iPad 3— with the possibility of packing Siri for the iPad. A month ago, we also saw wallpapers launching in iOS 5.1.

The iPad 3 is rumored to have an A6 quad-core processor, updated cameras, and Retina display.
