According to a various news outlets the new iPod Touch 6G will resemble much of the hardware of the current models iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. It is rumored that it will have two form factor screen and possible polycarbonate casing.
This means 4.7 and 5.5-inches screen and powerful internal hardware. Still a lot of people are not convinced that Apple will mimic the iPhone evolution withs its iPod upgrade. And they are betting more for a traditional 4 inches screen and a little bit less powerful internal options. Still there are no hard evidence confirming one of the hypothesis.

The only reason for launching a new iPod Touch 6G is the fact that Sony presented its new music player – NW-ZX1 during CES in Las Vegas. But it looks more like a compact player rather than a more universal device such is the iPod in the moment.
Nevertheless the rumors for iPod Touch 6G are interesting, but they don’t have a solid ground at the moment.
