According to a new report, the HTC Opera UL will be the first official Facebook smartphone.
An unnamed "very reliable source" told Pocket-lint that the social network's first handset is currently in development and a benchmark test has apparently revealed the first details on the unannounced device.
The source claimed that the 'HTC Opera GL' is the name for the handset which is being developed specifically for Facebook, with the benchmark result said to have confirmed a 1.4GHz processor and 720x1280 HD display. The Opera GL purportedly runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The insider added that the Opera UL has experienced several delays. However, it's not clear why the rumored Facebook handset was the subject of delays or how long the device has been pushed back for.
While Facebook has yet to publicly confirm plans for its own device, the social network has stressed its confidence in the service's mobile users, which exceeds 600 million.
And I'll not even joke about how calling something Facebook-oriented "smart" isn't very correct.
Facebooks area is not producing products, therefore they source out the phones from someone, Apple do not build their phones, Foxconn do, Google do not build the nexus devices, a range of companies build them, including Samsung, ASUS and LG
Apple and Google don't manufacture, but they do develop their products. The news here and on its source make me think it's just another HTC phone bundled with FB apps - which doesn't make it a FB phone afaik.
