It is no secret that Facebook is going to unveil its Android home-screen replacement (or launcher) app – Facebook Home – tomorrow at a press event. The leaks have coming from all over and after the alleged press-render of the first phone to come pre-loaded with Facebook Home – HTC First, we have the first screenshots of this Android launcher.
As you can see in this image (more below), Facebook Home just seems like a Facebook-oriented launcher for Android. The social giant wants to completely take over home-screen of Android users with Facebook Home and aims to be in front and center.
EVLeaks, which has posted these screenshots at 9to5Google notes:
From the imagery we’ve seen, Facebook Home incorporates a minimal aesthetic with a lot of focus on full screen photography. As expected, there are hooks to the primary Facebook functions available from most menus, obviating the need to actually navigate to the dedicated app or site in many instances.
We will know more tomorrow, when Facebook showcases Facebook Home and HTC First smartphone. The phone is rumoured to come with 4.3-inch 720p display, dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, Android 4.1.2, Sense 4.5, 5MP rear camera, 1.6MP front camera, No SD Card, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi a/b/g/n.
