HTC first colors leak Facebook Home phone

Just a day after we got our first glimpse at the "HTC first," the handset that'll reportedly be used to show off Facebook's new Home software, a new image has surfaced showing the first off in multiple colors. While yesterday's leak revealed what appears to be a black version of the HTC first, this latest set of renders depicts red, white and light blue versions of the unannounced device. Besides the new colors, the new trio of HTC first units looks similar to the one that came out yesterday, complete with a center-mounted circle button at the bottom of its face that also has another key on each of its sides. This latest image was posted by evleaks on the Chinese microblogging service Sina Weibo.

Neither today's leak nor the one from yesterday contain any information pertaining to the the HTC first's spec list. However, previous leaks have suggested that HTC's "Facebook phone" will feature a 4.3-inch 720p display, 5-megapixel rear and 1.6-megapixel front cameras, 1GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and HTC's Sense 4.5 overlay. 

While the rumored specs of the HTC first make it sound like a fairly mid-range piece of hardware, the main focus of the device will likely be Facebook Home, which is expected to be a new Android launcher of sorts that will serve up a user's Facebook content directly on his or her home screen. Facebook is expected to show off both its new Home software and the HTC first at an event that's taking place tomorrow, April 4. So now that we've gotten a peek at four different colors that the HTC first might don once it hits the market, which of the group do you prefer?
