Well I’ll be damned if TechCrunch doesn’t find this device “sexy”. The Quad-Core processor race is on and it looks like HTC might be taking the lead with what they’re dubbing the “HTC Edge”. The folks over at PocketNow have received, from a reliable source, a pic of the device and say it should have all of the typical bells and whistles. The device touts a whopping 4.7-inch screen with 720p res, 1GB of RAM, an 8 meg camera with a 28-millimeter f/2.2 lens all wrapped up in a device just a hair over 10 mm thin. And of course, the game changer is the supposed AP30 Tegra 3 CPU by none other than Nvidia, housing four 1.5 GHz cores. “Wow” is right.
The device is said to most likely house 32 GB of internal storage and Bluetooth 4.0. And of course, we can expect Beats Audio to be on board for crystal clear sound when playing audio. It’s also possible the device will release with a number of HTC’s new reported services like the HTC Listen Music Store, Bookstore and Gaming Hub. And to top it all off, the device could be the first to rock the new HTC Sense 4.0. No word yet as to whether or not the handset will come with LTE radios on board, as of now we’re told there is support for 21 Mbps HSPA. Neither was there word as to what version of Android the handset will ship with. Ice Cream Sandwich perhaps? We’ll see. We should expect the new device and others to follow sometime around late 1st quarter or early 2nd quarter of 2012. Maybe we’ll see something at CES? Thoughts anyone?
