It appears the rumors are true. TmoNews has received the first pictures of the refreshed myTouch 3G (aka myTouch 1.2). This device is a clone of the T-Mobile myTouch 3G Fender Limited Edition minus the Fender. New additions to the phone include a 3.5 mm headset jack and 288 MB of RAM (vs 192 MB of the original MT3G).

The phone will ship with Android 1.6, but T-Mobile is planning an update to Android 2.1 this spring.

Rumors suggest the phone could launch as early as February 10, but no pricing information is available. The Fender myTouch retails for $179 (with 2yr contract) which is $30 more than the original, but it includes a 16 GB microSD card. We expect the refreshed myTouch will include a 4 GB microSD card and hopefully retail for $149 or less.
