Apple quietly introduced a new 16GB option for its iPod touch on Thursday. The company previously did not offer its latest iPod touch in a 16GB capacity and instead only stocked the older model. The device is equipped with similar specs as the 32GB and 64GB models, although there are some drawbacks. It features a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera for FaceTime video chat, a dual-core A5 processor and a 4-inch Retina display with a 1136-by-640-pixel resolution.
Unlike the 32GB and 64GB models, however, the 16GB iPod touch does not come with a 5-megapixel camera on the back, which is a bit disappointing, and lacks the “loop” accessory. It’s also only available in black and silver instead of in the various color options like the larger capacity iPod touch units.
The device is available for $229 now, which is $70 cheaper than the 32GB option.
