Apple iPod Touch 6th generation has just been silently announced by Apple without any launch event or announcement. It’s now already out for sale and shipping to various parts of United States. And it’s been expected that Apple will soon start the sale of iPod Touch 6th generation in various parts of the world as well. And from recent speculations it’s said that the new iPod Touch 6th generation is already available in the Indian market and may go on sale at any moment. That being said, let’s take a look at the specifications of the iPod Touch 6th generation.
The Apple iPod Touch 6th generation comes with the same 4-inch (1136 x 640 pixels) multi-touch IPS display with a pixel density of 326ppi. It is the same display found in iPhone 5/5s/5c. It is powered by faster Apple A8 64-bit chipset along with the M8 motion co-processor, compared to A5 found in the fifth generation. It is the same chip used on iPhone 6/ 6 Plus.
The iPod Touch 6th generation now comes with an 8-megapixel iSight rear camera with LED flash, f/2.4 aperture, the same as the iPhone 5. It can record Full HD 1080p videos as well. On the front, it has the same old 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera with a f/2.2 aperture for your selfies and video calling. It can also record 720p HD videos. On the connectivity front, it comes with the latest WiFi standard – WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (dual band) and Bluetooth 4.1 for faster connectivity and faster data speeds.
The Apple iPod touch 6th generation is available in silver, space grey, hot pink, gold and blue colour variants and is available in four storage configurations. The 16GB model is priced at Rs 18,900, 32GB for Rs 22,900 and 64GB for Rs 26,900. These prices are inclusive of VAT but they are very steep compared to the U.S. pricing which starts at $199 (INR Rs 12,600 approximately). However, the 128GB model is not available in India. Also, the iPod shuffle and iPod nano are available in blue, pink and gold colour variants, in addition to the already existing space grey and silver.
