Leaked 5th Gen iPod Touch Images?

An anonymous reader sent in these images which claim to be photos of a prototype (DVT-1) 5th Generation iPod Touch. According to the submission the front has a capacitive home button, back with markings of DVT-1, and connected volume buttons. The settings also show a 128GB capacity.

Overall, it's hard to say too much. Each new component seems easily fakeable using existing images. This, and the fact that the submitter is broadcasting it anyone who will listen makes us think its likely fake.

Update: Moved to Page 1 due to the traction the images have gotten around the web.

If I would leak something, I would make sure the device is clean, the camera is in focus and there is enough light.

Why are leaked images (almost) always such bad quality?

Nobody is upset that after 4+ years they're STILL using the chrome back?!?!?

Seems a bit early to have a finished iPT 5 hanging around. It's not on market for 6 months.


That's because it is capacitive, meaning it is a surface that senses the ouch, not an actual button.
Thanks for that explanation. I was curious about the term and how it was used.

I always question the sanity of people who claim to question other peoples sanity of ridiculous things. :cool:
I question everything and people say I am insane.

Have you ever gone to move your finger across the trackpad and find that it registered it as a tap instead? Drives me nuts.

Nope. Never.

Fake. Not enough unicorn dust to be real.

It would be pretty bad ass if the entire screen worked as a button (like the trackpad) so you can go home. You tap the screen to select something or click the screen to go home. :-D
