In 2012, Facebook was rumoured to have had its own smartphone in production. Working in collaboration with HTC, the said phone was being worked on under the codename – “Buffy”.
Though nothing was later heard after that initial news, the said phone was to feature an 8MP main camera and a 5MP selfie shooter. However, Yanko Design gathered all bits and pieces of the rumoured phone and came up with this design:
Asides the notable blue colour adoption, a matching charging dock station is also incorporated.
Facebook may not have made known any new developments in this regard, but if my haunches about Mark Zuckerberg are anything to go by, I’m very sure he still has something about this Facebook phone in the works. I sense the incorporation of VR technology to a more modern high-end phone.
We’ll be watching, Mark… we’ll be watching.
