Facebook scheduled to introduce HTC-based Facebook Home Android OS smartphone on April 4th Event

The cooperation between HTC and Facebook to produce another HTC-based Facebook smartphone has been rumored a lot. Previously, there’re reports that said HTC Myst would be the Facebook smartphone, with detailed specs leaked online already. Whether this report is true or not could be seen in the coming days, as Facebook has introduced various medias to take part in an April 4th Android event. Facebook just sent invitations for its Android-related media event (showed in the picture below) on April 4th, which reads “Come See Our New Home on Android.” According to sources, Facebook would call this new Android-related Facebook experience “Facebook Home…”

As reported, Facebook and HTC are selling their phone and OS as a lifestyle brand, not specifically for its hardware or software. Facebook and HTC previously hooked up on the Salsa and Cha-cha devices which frankly flopped. This will be a deeper, forked version of Android rather than a Facebook-ified version of Sense. Of course, the hardware and software for this phone are competitive with the current mobile device landscape.

Sources who have seen the Facebook/HTC smartphone hardware in-person say it is reminiscent of an iPhone. It includes an iPhone-like “home button” on the bottom center, and this button is surrounded by horizontal function keys on the right and left side. These buttons are said to be capacitive.

Above the keys is a display slightly larger in size to the 4-inch display found on the iPhone 5. Recent rumors have pointed to a collaborative Facebook/HTC phone featuring a 4.3-inch display.

The phone hardware, itself, is said to be about the size of an iPhone 5. The phone sports rounded edges and the design is fairly beveled. Also reported that Facebook/HTC phone will feature a 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 5 megapixel rear camera, and a 1.6 megapixel front-facing camera.

The phone’s software is a forked version of the Android operating system. Facebook’s features, like messaging, photo uploading, and contacts integration is fully integrated throughout the operating system.
