You thought T-Mobile would go ahead and launch the same identical HTC Sapphire hardware as those other carriers, didn’t you? Well, it looks like good old T-mo US might have a surprise up its sleeve — at least it did. You’ll be pleased as punch to know that besides the rumored color options (which this photo does confirm to a certain extent), the T-Mobile G2 (if that is the actual name) will apparently feature a 5 megapixel camera instead of a 3.2 megapixel one. Who says your buddies at BGR don’t come through with the goods? We’re looking at a July release from Walmart and a $179 price tag with a 2-year contract. McDonald’s Supersized image after the jump (throwback edition)!
