A source has informed Pocket-lint of the very first smartphone built specifically for Facebook, the HTC Opera UL. The unconfirmed handset is speculated to be in the works and ongoing testing has uncovered the device's possible specifications - that it's going to be powered by a 1.4GHz processor sporting a HD display of 720x1280, and running on Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. It appears though, that the Facebook phone may not be released anytime soon, as the HTC Opera UL has been subjected to a few delays that kept pushing its release further back to an unspecified future date. If Facebook does confirm the existence of its device, it stands to benefit from an immense mobile user base who are already heavily invested in to the ubiquitous social networking app.
