As many of you will already know, Apple is set to hold a Special Event next Wednesday, at which the company will announce its new range of iPods, as well as a brand new iPod touch. We’ve heard that the latter device will be able to partake in FaceTime calls (thanks to the addition of a front-facing camera), but what of the new iPod touch’s design?

Well, according to iLounge (who has a well-informed source), the new iPod touch should include a camera, a microphone, and it’ll have a new design:

Think of the top of a MacBook Pro, only smaller, which is to say flat rather than curved at the center—closer to the look of the first-generation iPod touch’s back, only with modifications.

The article also tells us not to hold out hope for a LED flash, and that, though the microphone isn’t certain, it’s more likely to be included than a flash.

Additionally, the 2-inch touchscreen we saw not long ago is currently being thought of as a Nano touch, rather than a Shuffle touch. However, as iLounge states: “it doesn’t make much sense.” I guess we’ll just have to wait until Wednesday.
