It looks like we might be seeing the previously leaked HTC Edge launched around this time next month, the 26th of February according to GSM Arena who are reporting they’ve received an invite to HTC’s pre-MWC launch event. HTC normally announce their devices a day or two before MWC to build up hype for the actual event where people can check it out on the show floor.
With the recent render leaks of the HTC Edge and HTC Ville, it’s more than likely that both of these phone are going to be announced. The one to be most excited about is the HTC Edge which is said to house a quad-core CPU — the first of its kind in a smartphone. The CPU will of course be NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 CPU clocked at 1.5GHz which seems far too insane considering quad-core tablets at CES were clocked at 1.3GHz, so we’re thinking it’ll be closer to 1GHz with quite a large battery. The screen is expected to be 4.7-inches or thereabouts and will continue the trend of 720p resolution. We can also expect 1GB RAM, an 8MP camera, 32GB of internal storage and perhaps even a massive HTC logo on it.
Get out of the way CES, Mobile World Congress is where all the action is coming from now.
