Yet another handful of new details have been unearthed for the upcoming T-Mobile MyTouch 3G HD.

A leaked internal document obtained by TmoNews for the carrier suggests that the handset will sport a 1GHz dual processor and feature support for T-Mobile's HSPA+ burgeoning network.

While we're still waiting for T-Mobile to formally acknowledge the handset, the picture continues to get clearer. Much like the soon-to-be-released G2, the MyTouch HD will come with Android 2.2, 4GB internal memory, a preinstalled 8GB microSD card, and a 5-megapixel camera.

However, unlike its counterpart, the MyTouch HD is expected to have a 3.8-inch touch display, a front-facing VGA camera, a screen-sharing feature, and a new "driving mode," which allows for messages to be read outloud. There's no direct mention as to how the phone's videos will be shared, but I'd assume a Micro-HDMI port like the one found on the HTC Evo 4G.

The next few months will be very busy for T-Mobile and its customers. With the G2, MyTouch 3g HD, and today's Motorola Defy announcement, there are now three Android phones in the pipe. Looking at the leaked roadmap from a few months back, we can expect another two devices before the year is out.

HTC is holding a press event later this week at which it's widely rumored they will unveil the MyTouch HD in addition to other handsets. As much as I'd like to see pricing and an expected release date, I assume that will come from T-Mobile in the weeks to follow.
