PocketNow has apparently heard it from a credible source that HTC is set to introduce a new smartphone called the “HTC Edge.” We’ve gotten used to this by now, but what we aren’t used to is hearing that it may have a quad-core processor inside.
They’ll be using NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 to take on the task, a change of pace from the norm as HTC usually goes with Qualcomm chipsets. We imagine they chose NVIDIA as competing vendors’ quad-core chipsets are not yet ready for production.
The processor will be clocked at 1.5GHz and that alongside 1GB of RAM is needed to power the 4.7 inch 720p display we’re being treated to. There is a chance we’re also getting 32GB and an 8 megapixel f2.2 HD camera sensor with a flash, as well as a front-facing camera.
With these specs we wouldn’t be surprised if this turns out to be HTC’s first device to ship with Ice Cream Sandwich, though we still don’t have a release date for the public release of Android 4.0 so we can’t imagine Gingerbread isn’t the driving force with Sense 3.5 on top. What do you folks think?
