As much as Mark Zuckerberg has tried to convince us otherwise, the mythical Facebook Phone is just about confirmed as real and headed towards the market. Previously known as the HTC Myst or Opera, the handheld has visited the FCC under the PM33100 moniker over the weekend and will probably land on AT&T by the end of spring.
Aside from confirming it’s in the latter stages of testing, FCC hasn’t revealed much about what we still think will be a fairly run-of-the-mill mid-ranger with a dedicated Facebook button. There’s not even a generic photo of the device, but at least we know it’ll come packing 4G LTE speeds.
Based on previous rumors and leaks, the Myst is to sport a 4.3-inch screen with a 1,280 x 720 pixels resolution, a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of on-board storage, microSD support, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a 5 MP rear snapper and a 1.6 MP front-facing cam.
Again, nothing too special about the gadget hardware or software-wise, so you have to wonder whether or not the thing will in fact end up being marketed as a “Facebook Phone.”
