Back in November the first quad-core smartphone to come out of HTC was leaked. It was codenamed HTC Edge, and rumor had it that it would launch around March or April touting an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, a 720p HD ‘optically laminated’ touchscreen, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 MP camera, Beats Audio, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Now we have some new information about the Edge, but sadly it doesn’t have anything to do with pricing or release dates. Though we’re sure to find those things out in due course, especially with MWC approaching, since that’s where the Edge will get its unveiling. Today’s news is intriguing, though.
According to one of PocketNow‘s trusted sources, the Edge isn’t the Edge anymore. It has received a very, very rare codename change, and is now internally known as the HTC Endeavor. But, perhaps confusingly, that’s still just a codename. The device may be sold internationally under the name HTC Supreme.
As for why this change was made, it’s unclear unfortunately.
