Is the HTC Edge the world’s first quad-core phone?

Only in the world of tech can you have something so new like a dual-core processor be called out dated. This crazy thought is becoming a reality quicker than we all anticipated, because a smartphone code named the HTC Edge will probably be the first phone in existence to sport a quad-core processor.

Lets get to some rumored specs, shall we? The Edge supposedly touts a 4.7-inch display with 720p HD resolution, an 8-megapixel camera with a backlit sensor and 28-millimeter, f/2.2 lens, Beats Audio enhancements,  It’s also reputed to have 1GB RAM and measure about 0.4-inch thick. Also, the device is said to potentially carry some new pre-installed apps (a.k.a. bloatware) offered like the HTC Listen music store, HTC Read bookstore, HTC Play gaming hub and the HTC Watch movie portal.

The report is suggesting that this phone should line up almost identically to the upcoming HTC Rezound, but there weren’t any specifics on what version of Android it would launch with. A release date is slated for sometime in 2012, so stay tuned as more details slip out.

  • if HTC wants to keep being relevant, they need to make their devices a lot more thinner, 0.4 inches is unacceptable for a phone so big

    I don’t care how big of processor they put in there phones, it’s not going to make up for the fact android is so fragmented and htc sense is so waiste full and the internal components are pathetic. I have a feeling the iPhone 4s will still be able to compete with this in processing terms, it beat the galaxy s 2 and that isn’t under clocked like the iPhone.

    • you are a fucking idiot

      • So are you.  You can actually tell the difference between a single, dual, and quad core processor?  Even though most of the apps aren’t designed for them?  Are you a spec geek?  The fact that the person you responded mentioned the iPhone, you called him a fucking idiot?

  • Battery power *might* need to be increased to handle this stuff, perhaps?
