Hidden away in today's HTC First and Facebook Home announcements was the news that the Facebook-centric HTC First is powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 400 processor -- a mid-range chip announced back in February. The Facebook Home-running handset is the first to incorporate this new chip.
The Snapdragon 400 in the HTC First includes a dual Krait aSMP CPU running at 1.4GHz. That's paired with an Adreno 305 CPU, native Miracast wireless display technology, and 4G LTE connectivity options.
The HTC First will launch on Apr. 12 on AT&T, priced at $99.99.
