Slipping under the radar is the T-Mobile Prism II, a new handset that was posted today on the carrier's online site. Manufactured by Huawei, the successor to the original Prism does not have any pricing information listed yet, but apparently it will "come soon" to T-Mobile users.

The 3G device will feature marginal upgrades from its last iteration. It will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and powering its insides is a 1GHz processor (in comparison, the Prism housed a 600MHz CPU).

It will also sport a bigger, 1,750mAh battery, which is estimated to yield up to 7 hours of reported talk time.

Camera specs, however, remain the same, meaning it will have a 3.2-megapixel rear-facing camera.

Though screen size hasn't been given, judging by its slightly bumped-up physical measurements, we may see a display that's also a bit bigger than the 3.5-inch original.

And lastly, judging from the initial price tag of the Prism, it seems reasonable to expect that the new device will be around $150.
