While the world’s first quad core Android tablet should be released later this month by Asus, we’ll probably have to wait until next year to see the world’s first quad core Android smartphone.
We obviously don’t know what company will introduce the first quad core smartphone, but it could be HTC, which reportedly works on a handset called HTC Edge (pictured below).
According to PocketNow, the HTC Edge features a 1.5GHz quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, a 4.7 inch, 1280 x 720 pixels display, 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, 8MP rear camera with 28-millimeter, f/2.2 lens, 32GB of internal memory, Beats Audio technology, and a case that’s slightly over 10 mm thin. 21Mbps HSPA is also present, but there’s no word about LTE (it’s probably there, too).
By the looks of it, the HTC Edge is a smartphone born to run Android Ice Cream Sandwich. However, there’s no mention on what version of Android it will come with.
Reportedly, the Edge will be launched next year in late Q1, or early Q2. We’ll bring more on this as soon as new details are available.
