Alleged HTC website snapshot leaks an HTC Elation WP8 handset with "quad-core", looking just like the One X
Now we wouldn't put too much faith into this claim as there are some subtle issues with its details that perked up our BS radar, but an alleged screenshot from HTC's website is making the rounds, and it depicts an HTC Elation Windows Phone 8 handset.

Of course, the page has been conveniently "pulled down" afterwards, and now there is only a 404 error there, like the error given after you type any phone name in the web address.

Moreover, the "screenshot" reveals a device that looks identical with the HTC One X, whereas the leaked HTC 8X looks much different. To further solidify the argument that this might be a "nice-try" fake, is the listed "1.4GHz quad-core" chip. 

Considering that Qualcomm is the supplier of Windows Phone 8 silicon, and with its dual-core Snapdragon S4 reincarnation, rather than the quad-core S4 Pro, the whole thing is to be taken with a grain of salt, as is this WP logo slapped on the back, looking a bit out of sync. What do you think?

Jokes aside, WP8 phones will gain tremendous popularity if they become independent from Zune and offer USB OTG capabilities.

I have to admit it looks so fake.

HTC putting out a quad core WP 8 has been a part of the HTC roadmap since WP8's developer announcement. I am voting this render is correct, but we will not see it until after the turn of the year due to MS wanting to control the initial launch. Sounds as though MS wants to be able to release software patches easily to all devices if needed, and keeping the first wave of devices uniformed will make that easier. A quad core WP is a smart marketing move, and WP 8 can support it, so why not?
