New iPod touch Could have 1 Megapixel Camera on Back

It appears that the new iPod touch has a different camera in the back when compared to the iPhone 4.

The iPod touch specs reveal that the camera on the back can capture images at 960 x 720 pixels which equates to about 1 megapixel. This is below the 5 megapixels of the iPhone 4 camera.

However, the Apple [AAPL] iPod touch specifications say that it’s still pictures that are captured at 960 x 720 and then also says it can record video at 720p up to 30 frames per second. 720p video is often captured at a slightly higher resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.

We are inclined to believe the camera has a lower amount of megapixels as Apple don’t mention it on the site like they do the iPhone 4, but we are not sure if it’s 1, 2 or 3 megapixels. No doubt a tear down of the hardware next week will reveal exactly what’s inside. Part of the reason a lower resolution camera will have been used will be related to how thin the new iPod touch is.
