Facebook will unveil the new Facebook phone at the special event that will take place at the company’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California. This new smartphone is said to be’ HTC First’ which is a result of Facebook and HTC working together.
Speaking of working together, this new Facebook phone will not be the first from the company. In the past, Facebook and HTC have already come up with the HTC ChaCha and HTC Salsa which were smartphones that focused on Facebook.
The HTC ChaCha and HTC Salsa were not able to meet the expectations of the company in spite of the efforts made. The reason for the same could be because Facebook and HTC were not able to deliver a unique experience. But this mistake will be rectified on the 4th of April when Facebook unveils the new Facebook phone.
Some days ago, Facebook sent out an invitation to the press which said ‘Come see our new home on Android.’ Since that time, there have been a number of rumors predicting what will happen at the event. A majority of these rumors indicated the same thing – Facebook will unveil a new smartphone at the event which will run on a customized version of Android operating system and will have Facebook all over the place.
Previously this smartphone was rumored to be the HTC Myst, but recent reports suggest that the smartphone will be called as HTC First. There is a possibility that Myst could be the codename for the HTC First. Evleaks has tweeted an image of the HTC First which might be unveiled at the event tomorrow.
As far as the specs are concerned, the HTC First will have a standard hardware configuration which includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 5 MP Primary Camera, 1.6 MP Secondary Camera and a 4.3-inch touchscreen display with 720p HD resolution.
Facebook has one of the largest user base in the entire world. The social network has over 1 billion users out of which more than 680 million access Facebook through their smartphones. It will be interesting to see if Facebook is able to capitalize with the HTC First.
