There have been persistent rumors surrounding the possibility of Facebook launching an Android smartphone of their own. This is in spite of Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg claiming multiple times that no such phone exists. Well for those who think that a Facebook phone is a good idea, even though previous efforts such as the HTC ChaCha yielded results that left a lot to be desired, here’s a new rumor you might be interested in. According to this particular rumor, a Facebook phone is expected to be made by HTC and is going by the name “Myst” (hence the picture above).
The specs aren’t too impressive and if the rumors are right, this alleged HTC Myst will sport a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus processor with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of memory, a 4.3” HD display, a 5MP main camera, a 1.6MP front-facing camera and will run on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. There was no mention of why it is considered a Facebook phone, but if this device is indeed real, we guess we should know soon! We won’t place too much importance in this rumor for now and will be taking this with massive doses of salt, but we’ll definitely be keeping our eyes and ears peeled for more information – if it exists.
