Is it a new sort of TECHNIC beam?

Unfortunately the picture from this new Bionicle set for 2009 is quite out of focus, but I'm pretty sure we have here a new part to enlarge the TECHNIC inventory.
A new 'T' shaped 3x3 beam.
What do you think?

If it is really a new part, it will be of great use among TECHNIC builders for sure.
Also it would the 2nd new part found after the new TECHNIC panel design present at 8264 (Transport or Dumper Truck), in yellow.

Well, it seems it is in fact not a new part as someone raised in the comments section to this post.
Most likely it is a combined Bionicle chest 'panel' with a 'T' beam, like it is the case of Carapar from 2007.

If the image is processed using an unsharp mask, the part details are evident: It really looks to be a new T-shape 3x3 part.

I don't think so...
I have Zaktan and Carapar (2006 and 2007 respectively0, and they both come with front chest 'panels', with t-shaped beams attached. The 't's are just part of the chest panel. It looks the same on this one if you look.

yep it can't be a t-piece, as there is only one pin! there must be more hidden from view.
