We have already seen the leaked pics of T-Mobile’s upcoming smartphones. Today, the wireless carrier finally announced two new smartphones, the myTouch and myTouch Q. The 2011 variant of these handsets were manufactured by LG. However, the new 2012 variant is made by none other than popular Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei. These specs of both the handsets are almost similar, except slide-out QWERTY keyboard attached to the myTouch Q smartphone. Google has already unveiled the latest Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) OS. Sadly, myTouch and myTouch Q will be shipped with the out-dated version of Android OS. Yes, we are talking about the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) Operating System.
Brad Duea, senior vice president of product management, T-Mobile USA, said:
“T-Mobile is committed to delivering a strong and diverse portfolio of 4G handsets that runs on our fast and dependable 4G network, including smartphones that enable people to get amazing 4G experiences at a great value. The value and ease of use that the myTouch devices deliver, paired with our worry-free rate plans, means it is easier than ever for customers to get everything they want in a smartphone without the expense for features they won’t use.”
T-Mobile myTouch features a 4 inch WVGA touchscreen display with Swype virtual keyboard, 800 x 480 pixels resolution, 1.4 GHz single-core processor, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS, 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash, Wi-Fi 801.11 b/g/n, 4G Connectivity, 3.5 mm headset jack and much more.

The T-Mobile mYTouch and myTouch Q comes with the new Genius button 4.0, which allows the users to access the new Genius web search, featuring new voice-command capabilities such as direct search among multiple sources, direct app launch and the ability to make dinner reservations.
