Last week we learned of what could be HTC’s first quad-core Android smartphone, the HTC Edge , but it will not be the only device of its class headed to the Taiwanese manufacturer’s lineup. A newly leaked render gives us a look at what could be another device sporting four cores, the HTC Zeta. While there is little to prove the Zeta is anything but a concept, its accompanying list of specs is impressive to say the least.
The Zeta is said to feature a 2.5GHz next-gen Snapdragon quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, and a 4.5-inch 720p HD display. It should come with a serving of Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC’s Sense UI (likely version 4.0). It will also carry 32GB of internal storage, a 1,830mAh battery, 8MP camera with dual LED flash, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and Beats Audio support. Measurements are given as 109.8 x 60.9 x 9.8mm and 5.15 ounces.
Most interestingly, the Zeta is one of the most drastic departures from HTC’s established design language. And hourglass shape and sharp corners are blended into the familiar unibody construction. With little else to go on, we’d say consider this phone wishful thinking for now, though chances are if we don’t see the Zeta we will see something very much like it.
