The new iPod touch has the iPhone 5 screen and a 5MP iSight camera in a 6.1mm thin body
The fifth generation got the iPhone 5's 4" in-cell touch display, as well as a 5MP iSight camera with autofocus, LED flash, and 1080p video recording, as well as 720p video front-facer.
As far as silicon is concerned the new iPod touch is getting upgraded to last year's Apple finest - the dual-core A5 chip with souped up graphics, so it can serve now both as a multimedia consumption device, and play the pretty games in the App Store, optimized for the A5.
The best part is that all this is wrapped in an incredibly slim 6.1mm body, and runs the new iOS 6. As for pricing, the new iPod touch will cost $299 for the 32GB version, and $399 for the 64-gigger, available some time in October.
