T-Mobile leak tentatively slots Android 4.0, Huawei myTouch

updated 07:10 pm EDT, Fri April 27, 2012

Galaxy S II, Amaze 4G, Sensation 4G first for 4.0

An upgrade roadmap has given out tentative upgrade timing for Android 4.0 as well as T-Mobile's next myTouch smartphones. Although details are still in flux, TmoNews heard that the custom, upsized version of the Samsung Galaxy S II for the network would get its update on or near May 14. Those with the two most recent HTC phones for the carrier, the Amaze 4G and Sensation 4G, would get theirs over a month later, on June 16.

Other devices weren't outlined, although whether that's from a lack of plans or just indefinite schedules isn't apparent. T-Mobile would be running slightly later than Verizon, which could have most of its eligible upgrades done in May.

The same roadmap has also shown two Huawei-made myTouch phones. The touch-only device would be nicknamed the Phoenix and ship on July 11. The same day, a QWERTY keyboard-equipped model labeled the Buddy would be available. What if any differences would exist in the Buddy weren't given, although they may both run Android 2.3, carry 480x800 screens, and target the mid-range rather than the high end.
