HTC’s Next Facebook Phone Sees Updated Specs Leak
Is HTC really planning to take another stab at crafting a Facebook-themed smartphone? Some specs leaked back in January of an HTC handset codnamed Myst (previously Opera) suggested that HTC was going to take another stab at the idea, following the release of the Status/ChaCha (above). They painted the picture of a mid-range Android with a dedicated Facebook button. Today, we get some updated specs for the phone, which show it to be just a little more powerful than previously suggested.
The big difference between those old specs and these new ones is the switch from a 1GHz dual-core Snapgragon S4 MSM8930 to a 1.5GHz MSM8960. RAM stays put at 1GB, as do the 16GB of internal flash and details on the five-megapixel main camera with 1.6-megapixel front-facer. They’re also consistent with the notion that the Myst will have a 4.3-inch 720p screen, resulting in a pretty high pixel density. These new specs do add one other detail, noting that the Myst will support LTE; we’d already heard it would find a home at AT&T.
These new specs make no specific mention of a Facebook button, but then again we don’t have any particular reason to believe that important detail may have changed.
