Huawei next to manufacture T-Mobile myTouch smartphones

After what started out as an exclusive relationship between HTC and T-Mobile USA, the myTouch series has evolved to include LG. ¬†Looking ahead a bit it appears that Huawei is next in line to offer a pair of smartphones bearing the carrier’s signature line.

Pocketnow (who else) has obtained a pair of images which show Huawei’s take on the myTouch series, one with a sliding QWERTY, and the other without. ¬†At first glance these could easily be mistaken for HTC models as the even have the slight curved lip that came with the early editions.

Both model numbers (U8680, U8730) appear to have a 4-inch display size and bear a skinned version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. If these are to be considered successors to the LG models then we may see prices in the range of $100 for the Huawei myTouch smartphones.

We’re becoming increasingly more fond of Huawei’s products of late and admire T-Mobile for going with them for the myTouch handsets of 2012.
