T-Mobile: myTouch Cameras To Get Back Their Missing Megapixel


Yesterday, we learned about an issue with the latest myTouch and myTouch Q at T-Mobile, where the Huawei-made smartphones weren’t living up to expectations by not snapping pictures using the full five megapxiels of their hardware sensors. At the time, we speculated that an easy fix might be possible in software, and now that indeed seems to be the case, with the carrier confirming that a software fix is in its plans.

T-Mobile says that it and Huawei are aware of the issue, and will be preparing an update to let owners snap pics at full five-megapixel resolutions; with the software these phones shipped with, images are limited to just under four megapixels thanks to a forced widescreen mode.

There’s no timetable available for the update, but since it seems like such a quick fix, we’re optimistic that the carrier can get it out to users within just a few weeks’ time. Of course, none of this explains how such a gaff snuck by in the first place, but we’re willing to let bygones be bygones if the fix arrives soon.
