A Japanese blog named as Mac Otakara has posted some screenshots of "System Status" app running on a fifth-generation iPod touch which reveals detailed specifications of this new device.
As per the images, the iPod is running Apple A5 system on chip (SoC) based on ARM's Cortex-A9 architecture. It runs the same clock speed and on-board PowerVR GPU as on the iPhone 4S.

But unlike iPhone 5 which carries a 3.8-volt 1,434mAh, the iPod touch carries a 3.7-volt battery with 930mAh of power. The battery is slightly less powerful than the iPhone 5 but this may be because the iPod touch doesn't need to run cellular communications which consume much power.
