APK Teardown Reveals Details About The ‘HTC Myst’ Facebook Phone

Facebook Phone Screenshots

HTC is preparing to release a new Facebook phone in the form of the HTC Myst and the team at Android Police have managed to get their hands on the APK build for the new OS build.

As expected the new phone build features a lot of Facebook Blue and keeps true to the traditional Google Android OS setup.

The APK was created only to work with a Facebook employees account so screenshots are a bit sparse but phone specs were revealed.

Here is what we can expect to see on the HTC Myst:

Build.Prop Specs
The build.prop file will give us a basic idea of the phone this ROM is meant for, so let’s take a look.
Manufacturer: HTC
Model: MYSTUL (Myst_UL)
Carrier: AT&T
Platform: MSM8960 (Dual Core)
Ram: 1GB
Display: 4.3 inch @ 720p resolution
Android Version: 4.1.2
Sense Version: 4.5
Rear Camera = 5M
Front Camera = 1.6M
No SD Card
Bluetooth 4.0
Wi-Fi a/b/g/n

The hardware is middle-of-the-road which won’t excite most Facebook users or smartphone power-users, however this is just the first device from HTC to feature the Facebook setup which means other higher end options could join the fray if feedback for the Facebook smartphone is positive.

More details and screenshots available at Android Police.
