Facebook sent invitations to the media to a launch event on April 4, 2013, at Facebook headquarters, California, United States. After the invitation spread, speculation about what the product will be launched by Facebook began to appear on that date.

Reportedly, Facebook is working with HTC for this product.

However, according to the Wall Street Journal said in a statement to a source, the word "new home" can be interpreted as Facebook's new application. According to the source, this new application allows content from a Facebook user's account to appear on the home screen of Android-based devices.

In the launch event, Facebook will show off the ability of this application using a smartphone made by HTC. However, Facebook is rumored to not have an exclusive contract with HTC to deliver the application.

That is, this application will not only be present in the HTC-made devices, but on Android devices of other manufacturers.

Facebook, which has more than 650 million mobile users, plans to bring this application on all Android devices. The rumored smartphone developers have to do some tweaks on the Android operating system so that the application can work in the home screen.
