Indeed, according to some supplier noise reported by Electricpig, the next iPod touch might inherit quite a lot from the new iPhone 4. More precisely, it will apparently feature a front-facing camera for Facetime (as speculated), a 5MP Back camera with Flash and HD recording, as well as a gyroscope.
Alright, these are pretty much the features we’ll be filing as “Obvious/very likely” at the next iPod touch keynote anyway (most likely due in September). Nevertheless, it’s always nice to hear some more about the iPhone’s poor little brother. Also, if they can pull this off and distribute widely a $200 Facetime-enabled device, this could really take this standard to a whole different level.
UPDATE #1 : Here’s 9to5mac report:
Well informed sources have notified us that the rumors of a 5 mega-pixel camera coming to this fall’s iPod touch line may not have merit. They claim the new iPod touch will have a 3.2 megapixel camera that has similar characteristics to the one found in the iPhone 3GS.
A 3.2 MP is capable of really good pictures, its nice to have something rather than nothing.
UPDATE #2: Proof that iPod Touch 4G will pack front camera. The holes in the top are most probably for the Front camera.
