2012 iPod touch specs leak: 1136×640 display, 32nm A5 chip, more

“Apple is reportedly prepared to launch a new iPod touch with a 1,136-by-640-pixel display running an S5L8942X processor that will be less powerful than the S5L8950X CPU in the next iPhone,” AppleInsider reports.

“The details were published on Tuesday by Will Strafach, otherwise known as ‘Chronic,'” AppleInsider reports. “He revealed that the new iPod, identified in software as ‘iPod5,1,’ is known internally at Apple by its code name ‘N78AP.'”

AppleInsider reports, “In July, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo with KGI Securities said he expected the new iPod touch to feature components from existing iOS products, such as the A5 processor currently found in the iPhone 4S. The S5L8942X code name aligns with the updated 32-nanometer A5 chip found in the currently available iPad 2 as well as the Apple TV.”
