Quad-Core HTC Endeavor Delight Awaits

There are two things on my mind lately: The upcoming Mobile World Congress 2012 and Nvidia’s Tegra 3 chip expected to be in HTC’s next smartphone the HTC Edge, I mean HTC Endeavor – the world’s first quad-core phone. HTC EdgeHTC EdgeThe other thing on my mind is why HTC would suddenly change the code name from Edge to Endeavor per the people over at PocketNow.

It is difficult to wait for months at a time for new technology to emerge, with tirickles of information about technical specs but the time is growing near we will no longer have to wait. Soon HTC will unveil the first quad-core phone at WMC.  If the leaked specs are true, HTC Endevaor will sport Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core 1.5 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, 32 GB internal memory, 1080p HD video camera, 8 MP f/2.2 rear facing camera, 2 MP front facing camera, a 4.7 inch 720p HD screen, 4G, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth and 1,800 mAh battery. Talk about a hard core phone! That's a lot of power in your hand. 

Obviously with HTC's latest acquisition the Beats Audio Package will be loaded on the Endeavor just as it is on the HTC Rezound and presumably the Beats headphones will also be included.  If the HTC Edge ships with the latest Android 4.0 OS, Ice Cream Sandwich, as expected, this will be the phone to have in 2012.  Even Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak concedes in a recent interview that Android phones have advantages over the iPhone.

Currently Verizon Wireless is expected to be tHTC EdgeHTC Edgehe carrier of choice for the HTC Endeavor but whatever carrier is selected to carry this phone, the Endeavor is sure to attract many new and old customers. PocketNow also believes the retail name may be the HTC Supreme - time will tell. 

Along with the HTC Endeavor phone, HTC will be revealing the HTC Ville at the MWC 2012. The Ville is headed to T-Mobile and will be running HTC’s new Sense 4.0 which may come as a disappointment to many readers but many improvements have been promised. No word if the Endeavor will also have Sense but one can hope.  So for now I wait and keep my eyes open for a cool looking phone abandoned in a bar somewhere that just happens to be the not-yet-released Edge or Endeavor or Supreme (whatever they call it).  Fingers crossed!

 How about you? Are you excited about quad-core technology?

HTC Quad-Core w/1800mAh Battery?

No thanks! I plan to pick up the RAZR Maxx and wait for the rest of the industry to catch up in the battery department. If I purchase a Quad-Core phone I want to be able o use it with out having to carry an extra battery!

No kidding! I hope the rumors about the lame battery are wrong.  And what are they going to do about keeping it cool?   HTC isn't stupid, surely they will follow the Maxx's lead and amp up the battery life.

battery life would be better in theory, a quad core should run cooler because the work load is spread out, unless you are playing games. tegra3 is acctually 5cores the 5th sould be able to run most of the basic functions of the phone which allows your other 4 cores to stay dormant until they are needed. but with htc sence the idea of keeping a charged phone goes out the window.

waiting on this one.

Any phone you buy now will be shit when ice cream sandwich is pushed on them. Just like all firmware updates droid pushes out. Battery won't be a big issue i am sure.
