HTC Edge may be one of the first quad-core smartphones

0. phoneArena 07 Nov 2011, 14:03 posted on

While we all anxiously await the arrival of the Asus Transformer Prime tablet which will reportedly pack the Tegra 3 quad-core processor, it appears as though a device from HTC known as the Edge may be one of the first smartphones to feature a quad-core of its own…

Hey, the HTC Evo was not so incremental when it was released- it was a powerhouse! I'd love to see something like that get released again. Something that just takes the fire away from everything else.

I agree that quadcore is overkill for the software that is out right now, but in the future, this will be nice. The battery life is going to be rubbish.

Anyway, this will be pretty gnarly!

For devices 5" and below, there really is no point pushing further than 720p. The diminishing returns/price of production explode. 720p at 5" is a nice 293 DPI. Even if you were to put that screen 0.1cm away from your eye, you'd have a damn hard time seeing the individual pixel.

There's a fine line between smartphone and computer buddy, and you just passed it.

And a 3000 mAh battery to power the thing in order to get a full day's use out of it.

SPECS WAITING FOR:
1.5-2.0ghz quad core
2gb+ onboard ram
5.0"+ screen Super Amoled preferrably

Hopefully this phone doesnt turn out to be like the droid x2

I wonder which carrier this HTC phone will be on. It makes the Rezound seem kind of on the pitiful side.... F*cking A!

You know what quad cores mean?
That they will forgot about dual cores and instead develop and make it better they will focus on raw power of quad cores (without any idea how to use it).

Yay! Goodbye S3 chip!!!

Tegra 3 chip FTW!

As far as I'm concerned, HTC only needs to fix battery life, they nailed the screen on the Rezound, nailed the camera on the Amaze and hopefully on this they can nail the battery life!

If only its screen was AMOLED.

Couldn't Google have made the Galaxy Nexus just a little more future proof?

Google was essentially saying you only need a 1 Ghz OMAP 4 and 1 GB RAM to run ICS. You don't _need_ quad-core, but I'm sure it'll help!

Quadcore is nice and all, but all that power in a 4-4.5 inch screen?

It would be nice if they could release an up-to-date tablet with a Tegra 3 chip.

I couldn't bring myself to purchase the Flyer because of its single-core processor and its diminutive size.

Hey, Taco has a point. If someone comes on this post (HTC Phone with a Quadcore) and says it will beat the iPhone 5 (when clearly it has nothing to do with the iPhone or Apple at all), then that someone obviously puts the iPhone on a pedestal and thinks it IS a great phone.

Think about it for a second or two...
