So, Facebook Home was announced yesterday morning, where that announcement was accompanied by the unveiling of the HTC First, the first smartphone on the Android front that will feature Facebook Home. Well, we have looked at the HTC M4 in the past, and somehow or rather, the name of this particular smartphone has crept up yet again – this time around, it has something to do with the HTC First. It seems that the HTC M4 could very well be a variant of the HTC First, except that this particular model will lack Facebook Home integration along with a slew of other social networking goodies.
So far, the rumored specifications of the HTC M4 include a dual-core Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz processor, a 4.3″ 720p display, 1GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and an HTC UltraPixel cam of unknown megapixel count, in addition to a 1.6-megapixel front-facing shooter. The HTC One being given the codename M7 in the past would then clearly point to the HTC M4 being a lower end device, which would fit such a profile nicely.
