Android Police, a web-blog dedicated to everything related to Android, revealed a leaked version of the Facebook Phone’s operating system. The official statement is speculated to be announced during the company’s "Come and See Our New Home on Android” event which will take place this Thursday at Menlo Park, California.

The Look of Facebook Phone Leaked

According to Android Police, the phone’s homescreen will be replaced with a custom Facebook application called “Facebook Home”. This application will look pretty much like the existin Facebook’s Android app, but with additional access handset’ setting at the bottom of the screen. Facebook phone will run on HTC’s Sense 4.5 skin and Android 4.1.2. The rumor says the phone will be codenamed “Myst”.

HTC Myst is said to have a 4.3-inch 720px display, 1GB of RAM, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor and a 5 megapixel camera.


  • The Guardian. The news site speculated earlier that the Facebook Phone would look similar to an iPhone, but with a bigger display, about 4.3 inch. They also speculated that the phone would have a 5 megapixel camera, 1.6 megapixel front camera, and 16 gigabytes storage.
  • TechCrunch. The tech blog speculated that the phone would be a modified HTC device which features application layers over Android. The layers will provide a better integration with Facebook’s main features, for example home feed and messenger.
  • The Times. The news site indicated a full integration of Facebook apps like Facebook Poke, and or camera integration with Instagram

So whose speculation is right? We might see the real look of the Facebook Phone this Thursday during the event; or maybe not. But the real question is: are you willing to throw your phone away for the Facebook Phone?
