Yes, we still have to get through the business surrounding CES, but apparently there are big plans in store with HTC – though, it seems they’re reserving it for MWC. According to JPMorgan Chase analyst Alvin Kwok, he mentions to investors in a note on Wednesday that HTC is planning to unveil numerous smartphones that are based on NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor at MWC. Meanwhile, Taiwan-based newspaper Commercial Times has quoted Kwok saying that some of these handsets will feature Qualcomm’s MSM 8906 LTE chipsets.
Now that we’re in 2012, this year is looking to be like the year of quad-core devices – and this report seemingly shows the projected path we’re all expecting. Already, we’ve heard about some sweet HTC smartphones on the horizon that include the Edge, Ville, and Radiant.
Interestingly, Kwok also believes that the vendor’s shipments will grow 15 percent in 2012 and 29 percent in 2013 – whereas other analyst believe that it’s going to be a slow year for HTC. Nevertheless, as long as they’re able to commit in pumping out quality devices, we’re sure they’ll continue to have success in the smartphone realm. So who’s looking forward to MWC already?
