Specifications for HTC’s next “Facebook phone” have been confirmed. The device will go under the name ‘HTC Mystic’ and will offer a set of mid-range specifications. The smartphone will feature a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory. The device will not allow users to use SD cards for expansion. As far as the display goes, the device will offer 4.3-inches of 720p screen real-estate at 320 pixels-per-inch. The Mystic’s cameras will offer resolutions of 5 and 1.7-megapixels for the rear and front facing cameras respectively. Finally, the device will offer LTE, HSPA, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and will be powered by Android 4.2.1.
UnwiredView has stated that this information comes from a “reliable source” and that it matches earlier leaked information from last month. The publication has also stated that the device should ship sometime this spring and will be pre-loaded with a plethora of Facebook applications like Messenger and Instagram as well as the official Facebook Android app. However, we’re still not sure if the device will offer a dedicated Facebook button like what was offered with the HTC ChaCha and HTC Salsa, HTC’s previous attempts at a Facebook phone.
