Last week an image of T-Mobile’s upcoming MyTouch phone was spotted in some photographs, and today the folks over at Engadget have managed to get their hands on the real deal. According to their report, they were over at Huawei’s headquarters in Shenzhen and were given the chance to play around with the Ascend G312 QWERTY – the slide-out QWERTY variant of the upcoming MyTouch phone. Judging by the phone they seem pretty pleased with it, so T-Mobile customers should have something to look forward to in the future.
The phone packs a 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255T chip, a 4″ WVGA display, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a 5-megapixel rear camera (720p video recording), a 0.3-megapixel front facing camera, a microSD card slot, DLNA connectivity, and a 5-second fast boot option. The phone was listed as having Ice Cream Sandwich, but the demonstration unit was still on Gingerbread. Looks like it’s going to be a budget-level Android device on T-Mobile so don’t expect it to cost a bomb. Check out the video demonstration below:
