HTC Edge Becomes HTC Endeavor, Only to be Released as HTC Supreme?

Looks like HTC may be getting a little antsy with their codenames for the HTC Edge, a quad-core smartphone said to be on its way this year. PocketNow reports that the codename has been changed from HTC Edge to HTC Endeavor. No reason was given for the change so we’ll just chalk it up to pure paranoia. It’s said to be here in Q2 and will apparently be hitting store shelves as the HTC Supreme when it’s all said and done. Quad-core? Check. 720p screen? Check. Does the rest really matter right now?

    “With HTC Sense” always makes me laugh when I see that render.

  • Covert_Death

    i would CONSIDER it if its on sprint as an LTE phone that appears to have stronger battery life then some other HTC Phones and is picked up by the dev community.

    if this is on sprint i hope they market it as the EVO 2… seems like a good phone to make a successor out of

    • NYCHitman1

      You can be sure that the next EVO will be LTE. Whether it will an Edge/Supreme variant has yet to be seen, but I would like to think we’ll hear/see something around CTIA which is when the next EVO has been announced in the past.

    Yes, it does! AMOLED display?

    • NYCHitman1

      I wouldn’t mind a SuperLCD or Nova display if SAMOLED is unavailable.

        No amoled no buy! here

        It’s rumored that HTC will be upgrading to SLCD 2 this year. It merges the touch layer with the glass, thus helping visibility and responsiveness.

        • NYCHitman1

          Let’s hope the rumors are true lol

    Physical buttons, Sense, and most likely 2.3? Pass.

    • Tomáš Petrík

      Well, physical buttons are something HTC wants to keep to be recognized by and to have at least some design of their own, to be distinguished from other brands. Empty front side with just display has fewer options to be creative.
      Sense, that is for sure, but I think we can expect ICS, rather than Gingerbread.

      • OligarchyAmbulance

        Look at how long it took Gingerbread to start being normal for OEMs. I don’t expect ICS on hardly any devices for the next 6 months. And on screen buttons are easily skinned to look unique, just look at Honeycomb tablets. 

        • Bart Heuts

          That maybe true, but now more than ever do OEMs realize the importance of timely updates. If you take the Android Update Alliance (or whatever the hell that group is called that formed at last years Google I/O) and the recent leaks of ICS based roms into account I think we can expect ICS at MWC next month. I do agree with you regarding the hardware buttons.

          • OligarchyAmbulance

            The Update Alliance is dead. None of those OEMs delivered on their promises of timely updates in the last year. Look at the SGS. And look at the phones announced at CES, there were like one or two phones with ICS, the rest were running Gingerbread. The OEMs couldn’t care less about customers. They want to sell as many phones as possible. Why do upkeep on an old phone when you can just make a new one? If timely updates were important to them, they wouldn’t skin Android to the point of ruining performance. They just don’t care.

  • Drayon

    just remove the hardware buttons and have them on-screen.
    Plus, launch with ICS and HTC sold a phone.

      Wrong: Nexus One.

      • redpoint73

        True about the N1.  And a whole lot of wrong to that original statement.  G1, G2, MyTouch 3G also do not have Sense. 

  • hulk smash

    1500m battery. Check! 3 hrs of playtime check!

    • David Cramblett

      I love HTC hardware, but this is so true.

  • godrilla

    Ics ? And time frame, if they launch it too late 28nm chips and or 32nm chip phones will be more desirable at this point.

    I’m excited more so by how many things will change by the time it finally comes out

  • http://phandroid Jody

    Can’t wait to see how many names it will go through.

  • boo Jay

    Hoping this baby comes sooner rather than later. The HTC ville does not sound like a big step up from the Rezound and the Zeta will likely be HTC’s last phone of 2012.

    • phoenix_fire

      the zeta isn’t real. the pics that came up were just a render.

      • boo Jay

        I meant the Zeta specs.  I actually think the renders are quite ugly.

  • Aeires

    Battery life?  unchecked

  • Newbey

    Is this the HTC quad core phone that is coming to AT&T?

  • toomuchgame441

    Whats the screen size?

  • LLcdPH

    Verizon really needs this phone!  The Rezound is so last year!

    • phoenix_fire

      fuck you. verizon is getting everything. other carriers should see some awesome cell phone love too.

  • Dan

    Get over amoled screens. Lot of the colors are over saturated. Super lcd is fine. And why the hell would it launch with gingerbread? All new phones will have ics. Look all HTC “haters” we don’t care about your opinions…go back to Samsung.

  • Tech Watchmen

    And what about the HTC Zeta ?
