In line with a new report from KGI Securities, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that Apple will be updating the iPod touch later this year with an “all-new” design. Apple will use the same in-cell touch display technology rumored to be used in the next iPhone.
Japanese blog Macotakara reported that Apple would also move the iPod touch to a 4-inch display from the current 3.5-inch display.
Apple is said to be basing the iPod touch’s internals on the iPhone 4S. However, speculations say that the case will include a “buffed aluminum” rear shell rather than the glass back of the iPhone 4S or the mirrored stainless steel of the current iPod touch.
According to asian source, new iPod touch (5th generation) will have 4 inch LCD which is the same size with coming iPhone 5.
CPU or other spec is considered to be same with iPhone 4S, and has different back-case design, which will be not mirror polished but buffed alminum one. And it seems to be prepared black and white color model.
The report’s source also indicated that an additional hole in the lower portion of the rear shell, separate from the camera found on the current model. However, currently it is unknown what the function of the hole will be.
