Weighing just 3.10 ounces, the mobile device measures 4.86-by-0.24-by-2.31 inches with a 4-inch (diagonal) widescreen display, just like the previous iPod touch 6. One benefit of keeping the same dimensions as the previous-generation device is that your current cases will fit your new iPod touch, too.
