Huawei Ascend G312 (U8680) Arrives At FCC’s Door Step, Reveals T-Mobile MyTouch Branding

T-Mobile is bent on keeping their MyTouch branding alive and well and there’s no secret that the company has been in cahoots with Huawei to become the hardware manufacturer of the next gen device.  That being said, a device strongly resembling the Ascend G312 has reared its little frame over at the FCC revealing the MyTouch moniker and dubbed the “U8680”.  Could this be the next qwerty variant of the MyTouch line?  The FCC docs and pics reveal that there is compatibility with HSPA, UMTS, EDGE and GPRS technologies.    We know the device Huawei plans to release is a 4-inch WVGA res’d device which will have ICS 4.0 on board.  There will also be a 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255T SoC and 1GB or RAM running on the device.  For now, we’ll just have to speculate until an official announcement is made by Magenta.  Feel free to hit up the source link below for more FCC goodies.

Huawei myTouch Smiles for the Camera

At the beginning of the month we told you about T-Mobile’s plan to bring Chinese manufacturer, Huawei, on board to create the next line of T-Mo myTouch devices. At that time we saw a leaked press render of both the slide-out QWERTY (U730) and its solid counterpart (UA680), but now today we have a real-life image of the UA680 in the wild.

As you can see in the images below the device has the familiar myTouch rounded corners, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a set of capacitive navigation buttons. The picture of the lockscreen clearly shows that there is some custom UI overlay going on as well. The only other specs we’ve seen so far is a 480 x 800 WVGA resolution with an unknown screen size. Knowing that this device won’t necessarily be high-end we can assume a screen size of around 4-inches. You can bet we will be seeing more from this duo in the near future but in the meantime check out the other leaked images after the break.

Huawei to supply future MyTouch devices at T-Mobile

While the Chinese company Huawei has quietly released high-end devices like the Huawei Ascend P1 and the Huawei Ascend D Quad, they are still not a brand on the tip of the average American’s tongue. In an effort to change this, their next move is to produce two devices released by T-Mobile under the “myTouch” name. Starting in 2009, HTC and later LG had released phones under the myTouch branding. The new Huawei devices should be released sometime in the late spring of this year. The phones, named U8680 and U8730, are said to be identical other than the keyboard.

The only specs that have been released are the 480 x 800 WVGA  resolution, and the fact that they will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

We don’t have much information to go on, but from the picture the devices look to have a screen size of 4 inches and are probably not high-end or expensive devices. T-Mobile has also released a Huawei tablet, called the T-Mobile Springboard. Maybe this is the start of Huawei releasing some high-end phones for T-Mobile. Huawei is well on its way to being a household name in the US.

[Leak] T-Mobile roadmap shows a super November of phones and tablets

Over the weekend we told you that T-Mobile had some devices for a super mega lauch day on November 2nd. Now we have a lot more insight due to a leaked roadmap, plus we have another release the week after.

November 2

November 9

  • Samsung Robin: This is probably the Galaxy Tab Plus which is the replacement for the Galaxy Tab. Pricing will be $299 on contract.

One item to note is they have the dates for the HTC Amaze 4G and Samsung Galaxy S II wrong. We are not sure what the reason is, but the rest of the dates appear to be correct. The Amaze 4G and Galaxy S II will both launch on 10/12/11 which was previously announced.
