New Facebook phone to be unveiled: Reports

Facebook will unveil an HTC-built “Myst” device. The Facebook phone is a smartphone whose software is a customized version of the Google Android 4.2 Operating System.

According to sources, this smartphone will reportedly have 4.3-inch display, 5 Megapixels rear camera, 1.6 Megapixels front camera for video calls and 16GB of storage capacity. No details on pricing have been given yet as the smartphone will be built into Facebook’s features and services, and is intended to increase user’s mobility on Facebook.

“The version of Facebook for Android currently on this device needs to be upgraded to support Facebook Home”, said reports.

With the fact that almost every smartphone now already has Facebook access, either pre-installed or downloadable as an app. Would consumers really embrace a new Facebook driven smartphone, throw away their old ones, and buy a new one?

Facebook Home seems fairly plausible. Facebook also put out a version of Messenger a few months ago that integrated with the SMS data for a few supported devices. Also, the recent rolling out of VoIP calling to users in the United States, Canada and the U.K. could mean that Facebook is looking to circumvent the carriers with this release by allowing users to make calls without a voice plan.
