We have been hearing rumours about a new Facebook phone from HTC, and it seems they are true. In 2011 HTC released the HTC ChaCha, a phone with a qwerty keyboard and a special Facebook button. HTC needs sales, so making a new Facebook phone to boost sales sounds like a winner. The device is codenamed as ‘Myst’, and is mid-range device.
It has a 4.3 inch 720p display with 320PPI, 1.5Ghz Dual-Core Snapdragon MSM8960 processor, 1Gb RAM, 16Gb internal storage, 5MP rear cam and 1.3MP front cam, Bluetooth 4.0, LTE, and Android 4.1.2 JellyBean. It will ship with some additional Facebook software installed, such as the official Facebook app, Facebook messenger, Instagram and other apps.
This is only a rumour, please take it as it is, because it could be just another HTC device dedicated to the Facebook social network and not a device born out of a partnership between Facebook Inc and Taiwan-based mobile maker. Plus @evleaks isnt such a reliable source nowadays, especially after those “GALAXY S4” renders created by Expansys employee and stolen by evleaks. Opinions?
