HTC Myst Face Book Phone
Good news to all the Face Book fans. HTC is introducing new phone to the Face book users. This is the first true Face Book. Spotted online a few times before as HTC Myst, the device appears to be getting closer and closer to an official unveiling on April 4, and has just been fully detailed.
Specific info on it arrived courtesy of Android Police, which managed to grab a system dump from the device, and which had a look inside it to unveil hidden features to all users.
Thus, they uncovered that the upcoming mobile phone, which indeed sports the codename of Myst, will arrive on shelves with a 4.3-inch touch screen display capable of delivering a 720p resolution.
Additionally, the Smartphone will be powered by a dual-core MSM8960 processor paired with 1GB of RAM, and might arrive in the United States on the network of wireless carrier AT&T.
HTC Myst will run under Google’s Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, but will deliver a new experience to its users, courtesy of a Face book app that will launch at startup, and that will act as a launcher. HTC’s own Sense 4.5 UI will also be included in the mix, it seems.
The upcoming mobile phone will also sport a 5-megapixel photo snapper on the back, along with a front camera for video calling, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, and the like.
Basically, the Face Book Phone will arrive on the market as a mid-range Smartphone, yet the new Face book application loaded on it will make all the difference.
Android Police found a number of icons in the leak that will replace some Android icons or just add to the home screen. These include a new app icon, a new compose button (presumably for instant status updates or messages), a new settings icon and a custom Google icon. There isn’t much to suggest a complete overhaul of Android, however, just a slight redesign with the News Feed built into one screen.
There’s also a hint of a new app called Chat Heads, which looks like an always-on Face book Messenger. From the description it sounds like users can use Chat Heads to talk to their friends in any app without switching to Messenger. That could be wrong, however, as the feature isn’t too clear.
Face book will formally announce Face book Home and any other plans for its new home on Android this Thursday, April 4.
