Facebook has scheduled a press event later this week where the company is widely expected to unveil a smartphone built entirely around the social network.

The image comes just a day after US blog Android Police published details of what appeared to be a leaked version of a Facebook OS.

The HTC First is expected to be a mid-range device. It is likely to come with a dual-core processor and a 5-megapixel camera and will run the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
