iPod Touch will have 3.2 megapixel camera, not 5

More news from the Apple grapevine – or should that be Apple tree – this morning, regarding the latest hot topic, the next iPod Touch.

We reported last week on the John Lewis leak, which claimed that Apple was planning a 5 megapixel camera, with a flash and HD video recording capabilities, for the upcoming version of the device.

It seems that this might turn out to be much as it sounded, rather too good to be true, according to sources who have spoken to 9to5 Mac.

These apparently well informed sources say the camera will be a 3.2 megapixel affair, more along the lines of the one to be found nestling in the iPhone 3GS.

It does also make sense that Apple would want to leave its new iPhone 4 with a technological lead over the iPod Touch.

The John Lewis source also claimed the upcoming iPod Touch will have a gyroscope, and second camera plus FaceTime, though there’s no clarification on those points of speculation.

We should find out for sure in September at the latest, when Apple is likely to confirm the relevant tech specs.
