Leaked Cases Reveal The iPod Touch Might Be Getting A Serious Upgrade This Year



We’ve seen lots of leaked parts for the upcoming iPhone, and even some cases for the rumored iPad Mini, but not a peep has been heard about a redesigned iPod Touch, until now. Pictures of new cases claiming to be designed for the new iPod Touch hit the web this morning, and they reveal that the fifth-generation might undergo some serious design changes when it hits the market later this year.

The cases show that the body of the 5th-gen iPod Touch might be less tapered than the current version, and it also features a mysterious hole on the back of the device that we’re not sure about.

Here’s how GizChina explains the cases:

The cases could also give away possible details as to the spec of the 5th generation iPod touch 5. The hole around the camera area to the left for example looks to have been elongated and tapered to fit around a possible LED flash to help with low light photography, and there is also the appearance of a new ‘mystery hole’ in the lower left hand side of the case.

Anyone got any ideas on what the ‘mystery hole’ on the lower left hand side might be used for? Bass boomin speaker? Headphone jack? Camera button? 3-D camera? X-ray beam? Let us hear your wacky ideas in the comments.
