Just a few days after the original myTouch 3G finishes receiving the Froyo update over-the-air, its direct successor with an independently confirmed to us myTouch 4G name (not HD) will be officially released. While the November 3 date has been rumored for some time, we now have official confirmation through a leaked internal e-mail:

The HSPA+ handset comes with a 5 megapixel camera, 3.8" display, front-facing camera, 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, and the Espresso UI all on top of Android 2.2.

Looks like the new video-enabled Yahoo app wasn't the only thing ripped out of the leaked ROM for the new T-Mobile myTouch - the T-Mobile TV app, which is no unfamiliar sight, has just been pulled out of the ROM as well.

As we can see in the screenshot above, the interface is quite slick, with a nice black bar along the bottom to select content providers (FOX News, MSNBC, ABC News, CNBC, ESPN, and NBC Sports from what's visible).

As is traditional following the leak of a new ROM dump, developers have already set to work porting the novel Android flavour to other devices. As he did with the Desire HD ROM, XDA-developers' eVil D: has stepped forward to provide a working port of yesterday's HTC Glacier/myTouch 4G ROM to the Nexus One. Cautioning that he "may or may not support this", eVil D: goes on to describe the semi-functional state that the port is currently in:

What works:
Wifi
Radio
Bluetooth

What doesn't work:
camera/camcorder
videos
Wifi UMA calling = bootloop (you've been warned!)

Requirements:
Common Sense (this is a VERY EARLY build)
SDEXT (512mb) partition *Use clockworkmod or RA 1.9.0+

AndroidCentral got the ROM running on their own Nexus One, and their screenshots provide a good insight into the "Espresso" Sense UI of the myTouch 4G itself.

The old myTouch 3G may not have been the most powerful Android device out there, so thinking of a phone that goes by the same name while promising to be T-Mobile's next flagship device may take some getting used to, but if this leaked spec sheet proves to be true, it might just be worth it.

Most of what we see above has already been announced, including the new myTouch's WiFi calling capabilities, but the sheet does pack one big surprise: T-Mobile TV.

Just in time for the discontinuation of the original myTouch, the rumored myTouch HD has been made official, albeit with a slight name change (HD has been dropped). And the device is rocking some pretty impressive specs, which may just be enough to draw people away from the G2:

  • Next generation 1 GHz Snapdragon processor
  • 5 megapixel camera with 720p capture
  • Front facing camera for video calling over Wi-Fi and 3G
  • 3.8" WVGA screen
  • Genius Button
  • Android 2.2 (possibly with Espresso UI)
  • HSPA+ capabilities

Unfortunately, despite the awesome specs we have available, there's no word on pricing, and the only information we have on a release date is "in time for the holidays." But, right now, the only question on my mind is: when can I pre-order this beast?

TmoNews has scored what could be a leaked internal document on the upcoming T-Mobile myTouch HD. I want to say up front (although this is purely my own opinion) that I think it could be fake. I'm not convinced of that, but I'm certainly not convinced it's real, either. That said, here's what it provides for specs:

  • HSPA+
  • Android 2.2
  • "1 GHz Dual Processor"
  • 4 GB ROM, 8 GB mSD card included
  • 5 MP rear, VGA front cameras
  • Swype
  • Looks like HDMI-out of some sort (microHDMI?)

Other features: the front facing camera can obviously be used for video chat over 3G, HSPA+, and Wi-Fi.
