Pictures have appeared showing the HTC Edge, which is apparently the world’s first smartphone with a quad-core processor, including Tegra 3.
Pocket-now has a picture and specification information on the phone, which appears seems to be the successor to the HTC Sensation XE and HTC Sensation XL and includes Beats Audio. But has a AP30 Tegra 3 CPU from Nvidia, which includes four 1.5Ghz cores, this is backed up by 1GB RAM.
The phone is 10mm deep and there’s 4.7-inch screen with a 720p HD resolution. Elsewhere there’s an 8-megapixel camera with a bright f/2 28mm lens.
Internal storage is 32GB and HSDPA speeds are 21Mbps and there’s Bluetooth radio.
Edge could also be the launch platform for HTC’s content services – simuilar to Samsung’s Hubs – such as HTC Read (books), HTC Listen (music) HTC Play (games) and HTC Watch (movies).
Of course the HTC Edge isn’t official yet – and it’s may be called something different for the UK – but it’s apparently due to arrive in the US late Q1 and early Q2 2012. There’s no news on whether we’ll get this in the UK next.
