Sources reveal iPod Touch 4G will have many iPhone 4 features
Apple introduced consumers to many new features with the iPhone 4, the main features being a 5MP camera that can also record 720p videos , gyroscope and a faster processor. A major Apple retailer in the UK has leaked some information regarding the iPod Touch.
According to John Lewis’ sources, the iPod Touch 4th generation will share many of the features of the iPhone 4 including the faster hardware, camera and gyroscope as well various other features.
The new iPod touch will come packing a 5MP camera with HD video shooting skills, according to John Lewis which has just spilled the new specs at its Xmas in July event in central London. It detailed the new iPod Touch specs saying it’s based them on “noises we’re hearing from suppliers”.
The rest of the John Lewis slide predicts the new iPod touch camera will add a Flash to the 5Mp camera and capture HD video (presumably at 720p just like iPhone 4). It’s also promising YouTube uploading. Most excitingly, it claims the new iPod Touch will be the next device to come packing FaceTime with calls over Wi-Fi so it looks like there’ll be a front-facing camera too.
Finally, John Lewis claims the new iPod touch will pack in an accelerometer and gyroscope to further perk up its gaming credentials.
Wether the information is valid or just a hoax is unclear at the moment, though everything will definitely be cleared up at Apple’s annual Apple Media event which is due this September.
