T-Mobile USA decided several months ago that the manufacturer of its myTouch device would be Huawei. The Chinese company replaced LG, which was responsible for the last T-Mobile myTouch Android smartphones.
The first two myTouch handsets manufactured by Huawei leaked
a few months ago, along with most of its specs.
Although both are placed in the mid-range category of smartphones when it comes to hardware, Huawei plans to launch these two myTouch handsets with Android 4.0 ICS out of the box.
Unfortunately, we’re not sure how reliable this info is especially due to the fact that the sample units spotted in the wild some months ago were powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.
We do know that both T-Mobile mTouch
smartphones will be equipped with a single-core Qualcomm MSM8255T Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.4 GHz.
In addition, they will pack 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD card.
The main difference between the two Huawei myTouch products is the full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, which is only available for one of the models.
On a side note, the slider has been spotted for the first time in China as Huawei Ascend G312
, so there might be a slight chance that one or both devices will be released in the Mainland as well.
According to previous reports
, each myTouch Android phone manufactured by Huawei should sport a 4-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen display with similar resolution.
On the back, the smartphone will pack a 5-megapixel photo snapper with autofocus and HD (720p) video recording, while in the front there’s a secondary VGA camera for self-portraits and video chats.
Last but not least, the handsets have been confirmed to support Wi-Fi and DLNA connectivity. Given the fact that the non-QWERTY model has just received FCC
’s approval, it’s just a matter of weeks until T-Mobile goes live with an official announcement.
