Look above. Now look back. You might have just seen the world’s first quad-core phone. The HTC Edge is rumored to pack a mighty punch with NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 processor. Screen size on the Edge is 4.7″ and the device will reach just a bit over 10mm thick, probably due to the fact that the Edge’s battery will need to also hold a good charge to last more than a couple of hours on a quad-core chip. More specs include 1GB of RAM, a 8MP camera capable of video capture in HD, and internal storage that could reach 32GB.
The HTC Edge is said to be the first leap into HTC’s newest market, mobile media. The Edge will reportedly launch with the HTC Listen music store, HTC Read bookstore, HTC Play gaming station, and HTC Watch which is a movie watching portal for media fanatics. To top it off the Edge might be the first device by HTC that will carry Sense 4.0, the yet-to-be unveiled newest rendition of HTC’s custom software.
There are no talks of LTE capabilities, but it is still early and we may be looking at a European release followed by one later down the road here in the Americas. The Edge will reportedly launch in Q1-Q2 of 2012 so we are sure to hear a lot more about this device in the coming months. We are willing to bet that we will hear more at 2012 CES, which we will be at of course. Is the world ready for quad-core phones?
