The leaked ROM for the upcoming MyTouch 4G had a few more goodies in it than we expected, like a video ad of the device itself. It looks like T-Mobile will officially tack on the “4G” to the title and it makes sense since the original was the myTouch 3G.
The ad is everything you’d expect from a promotional ad for a new device, as it shows off all the core features. The myTouch 4G is packed into a sleek little shell that’s thin and looks like it will have a solid in-hand feel. Sporting a 3.8 inch display, it won’t give you the real estate you’re looking for if you like the EVO or the Droid X, but it should do just fine.
You’ll find a front-facing camera on the device – a T-Mobile US first – and it will allow you to video chat over WiFi and Magenta’s data network. Rounding out the device is the 5-megapixel camera with LED flash capable of recording in 720p HD (Check out our hands-on video of the phone here).
Then you have the Genius button that T-Mobile threw on the myTouch 3G Slide as well. I’m not really a fan of the thing and I prefer just the simple search button.
You can only use your voice when you use the Genius button, whereas with a standard Android phone, the search button will just open a search box. If you’d like to do a voice search, you just hold the search button down.
I don’t see how that could get much easier, and I definitely don’t know why T-Mobile had to replace it. Nonetheless, some people may love the button, as it does its job pretty well for the most part, but not everyone needs to search with their voice for everything.
Probably the best part is that the MyTouch 4G can suspend itself in mid-air, according to the video, that is.
