HTC Edge Leaks Appear – One of The First Quadcore Phones

HTC Edge: allegedly company’s first and probably one of the world’s first cell phone powered by a quad-core processor. It might be even better than Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Who thought?

Now, let’s take a look at what this new little gizmo is supposed to incorporate.

The HTC Edge, so leaks in the past few days have suggested, will include 4.7-inch display, 8.8 mm thick chassis and an 8-megapixel camera with a black-illuminated sensor and 1080p HD video recording support plus a 28-millimeter, f/2.2 lens.

In addition to Tegra 3, HTC is also believed to be using an advanced S-LCD 2 display panel that relies on optical lamination – where the panel itself is bonded to the fascia glass – for improved visuals. The Edge should also feature 720p resolution and 1GB of RAM. The major improvement is of course Edge’s supposed AP30 Tegra 3 CPU from NVIDIA, which offers four 1.5GHz cores to Rezound’s two. Internal storage will be likely upgraded to 32GB, while the Bluetooth radio should hit version 4.0. Naturally, Beats Audio enhancements would be part of the package.

Although currently unconfirmed by HTC – while NVIDIA is also keeping quiet on which partners are on board on the Tegra 3 boat – if true, the deal would be a significant shift for the smartphone company, which has been until now stuck with Qualcomm for its mobile chipsets.
