In a welcome departure from all the iPhone 5 talk, MacRumors brings us photos of what one of their readers claims to be the 5th generation iPod touch.

The photos, sent in anonymously claim to show a DVT-1 prototype of the next generation iPod touch and is said to be of the 128GB variety.

Of particular note is the apparent capacitive home button that looks to have replaced the current hardware solution.

The only other feature worth noting is the all-metal rear plate, similar to that we’ve been hearing rumors of finding its way to the iPhone 5.

We’re not sure what to make of these photos and just as everyone else on the internet we’d urge caution when checking out the photos. It could be legit, but it wouldn’t be the first time a good knock-off has fooled us all!
