By on April 3rd, 2013

All eyes are on tomorrow’s mysterious event in which Facebook is all set to launch a specialized Android phone at its headquarters. 9to5Google has posted photos of what we might see tomorrow at the launch event.

The Twitter account @evleaks tweeted with a new image of a phone that renders as the “HTC First,” supposedly the phone that Facebook will be launching tomorrow. The latest images showcase the basic Android UI that includes a bar with options to access to status updates, photo sharing and check-in feature. We have already reported the rumored specs of the HTC First earlier today.

Speaking about the UI in the images, it surprising looks similar to the Android Vanilla.  The leaked images show the stock Gallery, Camera, Phone and Settings apps, along with Google apps like Search, Chrome and the Play Store.

The new Android phone is heavily customized to use Facebook Home as the home screen with default actions from taking pictures to texting friends. Facebook will formally announce Facebook Home and the First at a press event at its Menlo Park headquarters on April 4.

Besides the Facebook Home Android launcher, what else is Facebook planning to bring up? Well, for that we need to wait until tomorrow. Stay tuned!
