HTC’s potentially ground-breaking quad-core Android phone could be showcased at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) expo in February, rumours suggest.
The as-yet-unconfirmed HTC Edge smartphone, which promises to be twice as powerful as the brawniest current-gen Android handsets, was originally expected to tip up at the rival CES event in January.
However, it’s now set to miss the Las Vegas beano, according to Taiwanese business site DigiTimes. And that’s reportedly because the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor that the Edge is to house won’t be ready in time.
The news is likely to be a real blow for HTC, whose quad-core phone could now have to share the limelight with other similarly specc’d kits likely to debut at MWC. Not least the sure-to-be-huge Samsung Galaxy S3.
Other mooted specs for the Edge take in a 4.7-inch display, an eight-megapixel snapper and Beats Audio. It's also likely to feature 4G support for super-fast browsing. Or at least it is in the US and other territories where the next-gen network tech is in place.
No such luck over here in Blighty, though, where carriers’ squabbles over the 4G spectrum auction have put paid to any hopes of enjoying super fast mobile browsing any time soon…
