HTC M4 could be HTC First minus Facebook Home


It doesn't make much sense to make phone only for one carrier, now, does it? In the spirit of HTC Droid DNA/HTC Butterfly phones, HTC might be releasing its First handset that some dub the Facebook phone, in an M4 variant without the Facebook Home integration and other social networking goodies.

Thus the rumored specs are a 1.2 GHz Dual-Core Snapdragon 400, 4.3" 720p display, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, and an HTC UltraPixel cam with unknown resolution, plus a 1.6 MP front-facing shooter.

HTC M4 has leaked before, and the HTC One was codenamed M7, so we certainly won't be surprised to see something lower down the smartphone chain from the Taiwanese soon.

isn't this basically the Rezound with a slighty different packaging? no wait, the Rezound actually has better specs than this, and was released November, 2011. WTH, HTC???

I BET on the Rezound, which has been officially retired.

Much faster actually. The Rezound was using Snapdragon S3 and this is using something like an S4. There's a lot of performance improvement in those generations, about 30% faster. Even at 1.2 Ghz, it should be faster than the Rezound. Not bad for a mid range device.

lol pretty much but i guess their view point is a way to give the "Facebook phone" to everyone with out breaking the terms and contract with AT&T its a little dumb but smart at the same time since the functions for the FBH don't require as much power and still run accurately

Its to target the younger generation. Not everyone can affford a highend phone like you. I don't see anything wrong with this. FB paid for it anyway..

not necessarily the younger generation, just people who dont care as much about their phone. I've seen many 10 year olds with iPhones.

HTC One mini. Let's hope it is better than this. They should just use the HTC 8x design instead and add Android 4.1.2 instead of Windows, if Microsoft let's them that is.

when is HTC going to learn.. carrier specific contracts are a no-win.
