New FaceTime capable iPod Touch to launch in September

Apple gets extra touchy

Following the hugely successful and yet devastatingly troubling launch of the Apple iPhone 4 last month, the Cupertino company is looking to move on with an iPhone 4-esq iPod Touch touted for launch this coming September.

The autumn launch was given by UK retail giants, John Lewis at its Christmas look-ahead event in London yesterday, where audio and telecoms buyer Rob Hennessey outlined the major features of the upcoming iPod apparently provided to him by the company’s suppliers.

Matching many of the specs of the recently released iPhone 4 just without the blower (so basically an iPhone 4 that is being held), the expected new iPod is believed to host the same 5-megapixel camera with flash and HD video capabilities as its phone boasting sibling.

If the John Lewis information proves to be accurate, the new snapper on the upcoming iPod Touch will be joined by the same gyroscopic controls as the iPhone 4 and even the ability to make FaceTime calls over a Wi-Fi connection. It is not know whether the new iPod Touch would feature the iPhone's stunning new Retina display, however, nor if it will utilise the iPhone 4's new, more angular design.

As you might well expect, the notoriously tight-lipped Apple has made no formal announcements regarding this possible 5-meg camera packing addition to its iPod range. Stay tuned to T3.com and our Twitter and Facebook feeds for all the latest and breaking news on the upcoming iPod Touch.
