HTC Myst rumored to be the next Facebook phone, details leak out
The long-rumored Facebook phone might finally become a reality, coming in the form of the HTC Myst, a 4.3-inch Jelly Bean device with a 720p display and dual-core Snapdragon S4 chip.

Details about the HTC Myst have just surfaced and while nothing is yet official, it seems that HTC might indeed be planning to release this phone with a dedicated Facebook button (hopefully, one could reprogram it later on). The company already has a history of making “Facebook phones” after it released the HTC ChaCha with a dedicated FB button.

The HTC Myst, previously known as the HTC Opera in rumor land, is a solid mid-ranger but nothing more. The Myst brings a 1.5GHz dual-core MSM8960 chip along with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (sadly, not expandable).

The 720p display at 4.3-inches works out to the impressive 341ppi, an excellent pixel density.

The device will feature a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 1.6-megapixel front-facing one, but we’re yet to hear whether HTC will pack in an extra large sensor in order to name it an UltraPixel camera. The phone will also come with LTE connectivity.

Not bad for a mid-ranger, but do we really need a “Facebook phone”? What do you think?
