  • If you believe the rumors, Facebook is working on its own smartphone, and has been doing so for years. Some suspect the company is already recruiting hardware engineers for a mobile device launch by next year.
  • Although it’s still uncertain if and when we will see a Facebook phone hit the market, a concept posted onYanko Design — and created by designer Michal Bonikowski — gives us an idea of what the device could potentially look like.
  • Featuring a sleek case in Facebook’s signature blue, the device is made from metal and touts a 4.2-inch screen. It also features a 5-megapixel camera in the front and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera. Bonikowski also included in his design a docking station to charge the device.
  • Although just a concept, Facebook Phone speculation is nothing new.
  • Facebook was reportedly first working on a smartphone in 2010. Sources said the initiative stopped due to development complications. Meanwhile, AllThingsD reported Facebook and manufacturer HTC were working together to develop a mobile device under the code name “Buffy.”
  • The New York Times reported that engineers have been sought by recruiters to work on building hardware for the device. This would be the social network’s third attempt to develop a smartphone, the report said, citing sources close to the matter.
  • It’s believed that “Buffy” may still be in development. Hiring engineers to work specifically on building Facebook phones would position the company to explore other smartphone projects, as well.
  • What do you think of the concept’s design? Would you buy a Facebook smartphone?
  • 컨셉 디자인이 어떠신지요? 페이스북 폰하나 구매하고 싶으신가요?
