Next-gen iPod Nano to see the return of the camera?

Share

6th-iPod-nano-thumb.pngThis September’s expected annual Apple iPod event could lead to some good news for fans of the Nano line, Apple’s range of tiny touchscreen mp3 players. A leaked shot from Apple.pro is suggesting that the tiny iPod could be once again getting a camera built in.

A shot of what could be the next iPod Nano chassis has appeared on the site, with a circular, camera-sensor-shaped hole cut away on to the top right-hand corner.

If it proves true, it’s not the first time the Nano line has featured a camera. The fifth-generation version also sported a camera, which was dropped when the Nano went on a diet to get into its current square form. It’s likely that the clip on the current Nano’s rear will have to be dramatically smaller or be removed altogether to fit the camera’s inclusion, which doesn’t nessecarily bode well for those who like to wear it as a wrist watch.

All speculation at this stage, but Apple.pro have a good reputation for delivering the goods when it comes to leaks, having previously correctly identified the current generation Nano’s display module long before its official release.

  • They certainly won’t be out until September, that’s for sure. Still, if that is the case you’d expect the designs to be almost finished by now, so perhaps there is a grain of truth in these… Only time will tell, we’re playing it safe and sitting on the fence!

  • I wonder if it also has a dislike feature which is frequently abused for example on YouTube. I understand that any rating counts for more than no rating but rating with the intention to do harm rather than good to someone is pathetic.
