Evleaks offers up first look at Facebook Home

facebook home evleaks

With Facebook’s Android-themed event under 24 hours away now, leaks on what they plan to announce keep rolling in. We’ve already got a good idea of what the device that unveils “Facebook Home” will include and how Facebook Home will be deployed (essentially as a home replacement launcher available in Google Play). Now we’ve got a peek at what Facebook home will look like.

9to5 Google has scored an @evleaks exclusive featuring the first look at Facebook Home’s UI. If the leaks are accurate (we have little reason to believe they aren’t), Facebook Home will build on stock Android to offer a design-heavy minimal interface with social front and center. Exactly what part of Facebook Home we’re looking at in the latest leaks is a little confusing, but it’s beautiful nonetheless.

We’ll have to wait until tomorrow to get the complete picture, but as of right now, Facebook Home–and the HTC First–look surprisingly competent. We’re excited to see exactly what Facebook has planned for Android.

    Can’t wait for a video review. Or maybe a live stream of the event. I want to see what this is like in action.

      FB: We can’t code a simple app for android that doesn’t kill all the available resources, so let’s make a whole new UI/skin…
      No thanks

    A Facebook home replacement launcher? Even though I can see the appeal to those who are really into Facebook and the whole social networking, I wouldn’t want something like that. I’m happy with my current launcher; Nova.

  • kayvannj

    I don’t see myself dedicating my launcher to Facebook.

  • Adryan maldonado

    yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…. no thanks

  • jamal adam

    It doesn’t look half bad but then again we’ll have to wait and see what it’s all about. Still not liking the idea of it.

  • NasLAU

    What’s Facebook? I don’t have one of those.

  • redraider133

    I hope with this they can also make their app better because it is pretty awful currently.

  • scubabum

    Don’t use Facebook and don’t need a Facebook phone.

  • aranea

    Personally, meh! Why would I want a phone that’s so much tied into facebook?

  • donger

    That’s it? Would be more simpler just to have a dedicated Facebook button.

  • Sameer

    Nothing extreme innovative in this phone.. In the days of HTC one, S4, Xperia Z, its hard to Facebook to leave impact on market with average phone

  • Anjie Cai

    so all this buzz about a launcher and a skin… Gotta say, it actually looks pretty nice, but don’t think it appeals/would appeal to many people. Lets hope they include a native GOOD FACEBOOK APP/update with this launch :)
