Huawei-Made myTouch For T-Mobile Passes Through FCC

While the upcoming Huawei myTouch may not be the phone at their top of everyone’s want list, it did just pass through the FCC on its way to T-Mobile store shelves in the near future. The FCC filing actually provides some details surrounding/confirming the phones specs as well including a 4″ WVGA display, 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255T processor, 1GB RAM, 4GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot.  Pretty much all the same specs we already knew, but it’s always nice to confirm any last-minute changes.

The Galaxy S III this isn’t, but it’s sure to fill a niche spot for family members who just don’t need all the bells and whistles of a 4.8″ super smartphone screen. We can’t help but be a little disappointed in these specs however and that’s not necessarily the fault of this particular phone. We can’t help but feel the days of uber-powerful QWERTY smartphones is in the rear-view mirror. I don’t even know if such a market truly exists anymore or if such a device would be more niche than it may have been two years ago. Still, it would be nice to see someone put out a truly powerful QWERTY device and we wouldn’t object to that “someone” being T-Mobile.

    im impressed by the 1gb ram…these phones should perform quite well in day to day use.

  • Akulamenuri

    HTC then LG then Huawei, the MyTouch brand just keeps getting worse.

  • HWKB4lyf

    Is that a PORTRAIT qwerty?!?



      My touch Q… What do you think? 

  • Damiza88

    Not bad of a spec

  • Mos_def98

    weak ass phone T-mobile is still in last place and will remain there until they step there game up

      what is your reasoning on why this phone is weak? 1.4 GHz and 1GB ram. Sounds good to me. It would be the most powerful device that is not a Super phone. What other carrier fills that niche? a year ago that was top of the line. Not every phone has to be dual core huge screen, not everyone wants that. I have customers who specifically don’t want a very powerful device.


      Yea because Verizon and AT&T don’t sell any low to mid-range phones and everyone has a galaxy nexus or a Galaxy note.

      I work in the sales department and it constantly amazes me how “phone geeks” like this seem to think that EVERY phone has to be a handheld Alienware supercomputer or the company is going out of business. I have people calling every single day who are disappointed that we don’t have a better selection of flip phones and other non smartphones. Believe it or don’t, but some customers just want a phone to make phone calls and possibly send an occasional text message. Other customers want an affordable smartphone just so that they can occasionally check Facebook or use the GPS to get directions. If we scrapped all phones other than the $600.00 retail smartphones, idiots like this guy here would be thrilled, however; we would probably be out of business in a year. Offering nothing but handheld supercomputers is most assuredly not the path to “First place” in the cell phone market. It is only the path to happy posts from the 10% or less of customers that just HAVE to have the latest, most powerful, fastest, most expensive phone on the planet. And even that would only last until something comes out that has a tenth of an inch bigger screen, another kilobyte of RAM, or a thousandth of a megahertz faster processor.

        I can’t understand either why TM is the only one of the big 4,that has weak line up non smart phones. At&t are still selling sliders,and flip phones that came out anywhere from 3 to 5 yrs ago.
        They sell 2 rugged flip phones that are shock,water resit. Sprint has one at least last I look at there lineup. So does Verizon,but none in TM line up.  Why did TM stop selling 5230 by Nokia? That was  a solid phone. At&t still selling smart phones that came out 2or 3yrs ago.TM get’s rid of solid phones all the time way to early. Why did they stop selling the G-2? TM needs a simple solid line up of flip phones. Why is it that TM,doesnot have Senior plan like At&t,and Verizon does?  $29.amonth for 200 mins. Not sure of details of this plan,not sure if u can add text,mins too it etc,but I am sure there is where u can add more to it and text if need so.

         I understand what you are saying, but I don’t know a lot of phone nerds, but half of them (including myself) waited for a dual-core QWERTY phone for as long as we could. I waited as long as I could until I finally bought a non-QWERTY phone. I buy new phones every 2-3 years, and the lack of a decent QWERTY phone was delaying my long-awaited transition from Windows Mobile to Android, and I was suffocating on Windows. Unfortunately, T-Mobile released a high-powered QWERTY phone two months later. :-(

    stop whining about this phone!!!  It has great specs for middle of the line entry phone.  This is not for dorks like you!  This phone is designed for the 75% of consumers who walk in and want the cool phone like their friends but cant afford it.

      Yo David, ask your ninja what happen on June 20th.  As it is kind of confirmed by Canada carriers, and most of the time US and Canada will share a similar date

      • Test

        take a look at mobilesyrup for their update

        • Guest

          Oh by the way that is for GS3

      • Guest

        Rumors are Samsung Galaxy M is launching maybe GS3

        • I believe the Galaxy M is the GSIII and June 20th looks like a solid date.

        • Guest

          I was told those dates are 100% guaranteed! Note 7/11!

    I would never sell a customer Huawei….. Sorry, just to many problen,to count,on two hand and my feet

    • Guest

      You are telling me you have never had issues with the Samsung Exhibit 1 or 2?  Top returned phone for TMO

    • Ian Harrington

       Wow good to know you don’t keep up with current phones and look out for your customers. I will make sure to avoid you if I ever have to work at your store.

      Point being that Huawei has made some good quiltiy phones as of late, yea they are no HTC but they are still good and reliable. so long as this phone is priced right I will happily recommend it to my customers

  • fixxmyhead

    everytime i hear  huawei the first thing that comes to mind is  that MEGA SUPER ULTIMATE POS huawei comet phone.

  • Good looking guts for this phone ;-) hope they sell well

  • smithgo

    ignored phone. next

  • randomnerd_number38

    I’m still holding out hope for a true high-end qwerty phone from T-Mobile. Maybe in the winter lineup. In the meantime, I’m making due with a One S. Great device, but I still miss my keyboard :(

    • Checonejo1

      The huawei my touch slide is pretty good!!! I’ve been playing with it already and i have to admit the huawei did a pretty good job on it

      • Jackswiffy

        How do you have one to play with?

  • Youngt82

    I hope the phone isn’t all green like that?? Lol

  • Johnny Brown

    What? No double quad-core, 7″ beast with 5GB of ram?? Pass.

    Seriously Huawei isn’t exactly synonymous with quality, but the few I’ve played with are decent enough..  Maybe they’ll surprise us this time around :-) Those specs a pretty darn good for a mid-ranger. 

    • ArkAngel_X

      The Huawei Mercury on Cricket is a pretty nice phone though. i wouldn’t be suprised if this was a pretty sexy device.

  • JMccovery

    I think T-Mobile should also sell this for Monthly4G customers. The specs on this phone put it above the Exhibit II, could sell well at $199-$249…

  • Guest 2012

    Relax guys. There is a phone for everybody. Not everyone wants a Ferrari. Some want a Hyundai. Even Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T sell “Hyundai’s”. Granted, T-Mobile has a bigger selection of “Hyundai’s” for the price conscious consumers.
