T-Mobile myTouch QWERTY smartphone made by Huawei taken for a photo shootout
Well, well, what do we have here! If it isn't one of the upcoming T-Mobile myTouch smartphones made by Huawei. The device, which you can check out in the photos below, was spotted at the company's headquarters in Shenzhen, where it was taken for a full-fledged photo shootout.

Curious about the hardware specs of this new T-Mobile myTouch slider? Well, you probably won't be too thrilled. The device comes with a 1.4GHz single-core processor, namely the Qualcomm MSM8255T, and 1GB of RAM. Its touchscreen display measures 4 inches in diagonal and has a resolution of 480 by 800 pixels. A pair of cameras is also in tow: a 5-megapixel main one on the back that can capture 720p video, and a pretty basic VGA shooter up front for video chats. Also, the smartphone should come with Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, as indicated in its specs sheet, but the unit that posed for the camera was still rocking Gingerbread.

Oh, and by the way, the smartphone's actual name is Huawei Ascend G312 QWERTY, although what moniker will T-Mobile decide to give it remains unclear. Now feel free to flick through the gallery of images below, check out the hands-on video of the smartphone in action, and let us know what you think about it by dropping a comment.

PA, your title says "smarthpone".

Wish they would make a flagship mytouch device again.

i agree, i had the mytouch 4g and the 4g slide and both were great devices for their time.

T-Mobile should have stuck with HTC for the myTouch series.

This phone is going to be garbage and a wasted investment. I really can't see this beating out even the free phones.

not beating the free phones? the phones suck, lets see 1.4ghz s2 processor, 480x800 screen, 5mp cam with 720p, 1gb of ram, 4 inch screen, 4gb rom, and a qwerty. most of their freebies dont have half of that.

the specs might not be all that stellar compared to the OneX, Ascend D, or rumored SGS3 specs,
but its still a 1.4ghz processor and 1gig of ram. It will be smooth.. especially on ICS.
The current "Mytouch" line by LG only runs at 1ghz and I think 512mb ram, so its still an improvement. And again, especially with ICS running the show.

Amazing how tech flies. Last year, 1.4ghz was "amazing", now its "junk". lol

Actually, the mytouch 4G slide is 1.2ghz dual core core processor with 768mb RAM, 8MP camera and 1080P HD recording.

I hope they make a version for Canada. I want a phone with a physical QWERTY keyboard.

So they're going from 1.2 dual core snapdragon to a single core 1.4? An increase of RAM to 1G... It's not much of an upgrade...
