Rumored Facebook phone is real, and there are benchmarks to prove it


Rumors about Facebook making their own phone has been around for a long time, and it’s never really gone away. Even Zuckerburg himself has rebuffed the idea of the Facebook made phone, saying that it doesn’t make sense for the social network to make their own device. Well, PocketLint has found out through a trusted source that the company IS making their own phone, and has partnered up with Taiwanese phone maker HTC to make it. The device is dubbed as the HTC Opera UL, and there’s a benchmark in NenaMark2 that proves it is real. PocketLint’s source has confirmed that the new phone has been developed in close cooperation with the social network, saying that “It is the Facebook phone, made for Facebook.”

The NenaMark2 benchmark also provides a glimpse into the phone’s supposed specs – a 1.4GHz processor (not sure though if it’s dual-core or quad-core), a Qualcomm Adreno 305 GPU, 1280 x 720 display and will run Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean).
