T-Mobile has announced a pair of new smartphones that are part of its myTouch line: the myTouch and myTouch Q built by Huawei. Though they have the same name as the myTouch smartphones released last fall, these new models feature larger displays and faster processors than the older versions.

The new myTouch models are the first ones to be built by Huawei. Earlier members of T-Mobile's myTouch line were produced by the likes of HTC and LG. Virtually identical in specs, the only difference between the new myTouch and the new myTouch Q is that the Q sports a four-row slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Both phones have a 4-inch WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) display, 1.4GHz processor, and a 5 megapixel camera. Each phone also has a front-facing camera and support for T-Mobile's 4G HSPA+ network, as well as a 1500mAh battery.

Unfortunately, the new myTouch and myTouch Q will launch with Android 2.3 Gingerbread instead of Android 4.0 or 4.1, which will likely disappoint a few buyers. The myTouch will be sold in black or dark red, while the myTouch Q will be available in black or white. Both phones will cost $49.99 with a new two-year contract when they hit shelves on August 8.
