Geskin says that the device referred in the leaked code is just "iPod 8,1". In one of the strings for setup.app, he claims to have found a line that says, “Unlock you iPod with your Face” which points towards the Apple’s Face ID tech in the upcoming iPhone X.

Geskin, replying to his Tweet said that a new iPod is just a possibility and not a confirmation as Apple may simply be future-proofing its code. Even if the speculated iPod exists, we might get to see it at the Apple’s launch event tonight.
Apple is expected to launch the iPhone X along with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus at its event. Previous leaks from the iOS 11 GM code also revealed that the iPhone 8 will feature 2GB RAM while iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X will offer 3GB RAM. Further, it reveals that the iPhone X will use a new Hexacore A11 SoC with four high performance “Mistral” cores and two high efficiency “Monsoon” cores. The A11 SoC will be based on TSMC's new 10nm FinFET architecture and won't be a fusion chipset.
