After four years, Apple has finally decided to revive the iPod lineup and unveiled a brand new iPod Touch. It’s not yet available for purchase in Malaysia, but we can already see the prices and storage variants on Apple Malaysia’s website.
Powered by the A10 Fusion chip – powering the iPhone 7 – the new iPod Touch has a 4-inch IPS display for media consumption. For the camera, there’s an 8MP rear camera with a 1.2MP FaceTime HD camera on the front.
Albeit packed with a slightly old A10 Fusion chip, the iPod Touch can deliver twice the CPU performance and three times graphics performance than its predecessor model released back in July 2015. The new chip also brings Group FaceTime and augmented reality apps capabilities to the new iPod Touch.
The device features a battery life of up to 40 hours for music playback and 8 hours for video playback. Apple’s removed the 16GB and 64GB variants, so customers will only have the 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB version to choose from.
iPod Touch Prices:
- iPod Touch 32GB: RM 899
- iPod Touch 128GB: RM 1,349
- iPod Touch 256GB: RM 1,799
Apple has added a splash of colours to the new iPod Touch, as always. It’s available in Blue, Gold, Pink, Silver, Space Gray, and (PRODUCT)RED. Each purchase made on Apple Malaysia’s online store, they are eligible for free engraving.
Stay tuned to AXO or Apple Malaysia to find out when the new iPod Touch will be made available for purchase.
