Did T-Mobile just accidentally spill the beans on a pair of upcoming smartphones? The carrier recently uploaded a video to its YouTube account that doesn’t seem to be meant for public consumption; even though it was quickly set to private, the clip’s title alone gives away the existence of the handsets.
The T-Mobile myTouch by LG and myTouch Q by LG mark a departure from current myTouch models, manufactured by HTC. While the video tutorials remain marked private, AndroidGuys was able to snag a pic of the pair. They may look the same here, but as should be clear from the names, one will have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
Speculation over what these new myTouch models might be is focused around the LG Univa/Optimus Hub. Though these two have capacitive home buttons instead of the physical button on the Univa/Hub, the form factor is a close match. There’s also the theory that these two are the LG Maxx/Maxx Q that were mentioned on a T-Mobile roadmap all the way back in May.
We haven’t heard any solid rumors about a potential release date, but the presence of these clips suggests T-Mobile could be ready to launch within the next month or two.
