A5 chip: dual-core processor, 2x faster CPU, and dual-core graphics
iOS 6 (Siri, Nike+ support built in, etc.)
Built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery life increased: 40 hours of music, 8 hours of video
New iSight camera (with new Panorama mode)
New FaceTime HD camera, 720p video
iPhoto for the App Store
Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi (802.11n 2.4GHz and 5GHz)

“You may have noticed there’s a little circle on the bottom of the touch. We call it ‘The Loop’. You push the circle and it pops up a loop for a bracelet,” explained Joswiak. ”…The best iPods we’ve ever done.”
The new iPod touch will release in October starting at $299 for 32GB.
