HTC says "This Sunday you'll discover something fast," could be introduction of quad-core model

HTC says
HTC is planning on grabbing the buzz away from the competition with its press event scheduled for this Sunday in Barcelona, the day before the opening of MWC 2012. The Taiwan based manufacturer will be running down its 2012 line-up including the highly anticipated HTC One X. Formerly known as the HTC Endeavor, the HTC One X is expected to be powered by a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, which leads us to the teaser that has been left today by the manufacturer.

HTC promises that "This Sunday you'll discover something fast," which has more than one possible meaning. We're taking it to mean that the company has a speedy device to show us on February 26th, most likely the HTC One X. Part of the teaser shows a generic HTC handset in landscape with the number 5 on the screen. Again, there are several meanings for this.

The image could be hinting about the 5 cores that are inside the NVIDIA Tegra 3, one of which takes the pressure off of the battery. Or perhaps the image is merely reminding us that the event will start in 5 days. The festivities begin Sunday at 8:30pm Barcelona time, which in the States is 2PM in the east and 11AM in the west. Set your alarm, fire up your browser and head right here so that you will be able to discover something fast on Sunday.

It's a shame that VZW locks HTC phones on their network.

What other network would you use them on? They're not GSM-compatible, and I believe Sprint and all the companies that use its network use different frequencies and a slightly different CDMA technology

Watch it be super fat, ugly as f**k, with Sense, and a 14 minute boot. Oh and the battery life will last 15 minutes.

After using the Thunderbolt, I'd respectfully disagree. My Motorola and Samsung phones have been much more resilient to damage.

Is this a joke? Get a Samsung, and now Motorola seems to finally be stepping it up with the RAZR Maxx.

Or another possible explanation is that htc is going to demonstrate 5 new phones...

normally, id be happy about this.............but after dealing with the HTC Inspire for almost a year, i dont like HTC anymore. Im a heavy user and Ive had issues like HTC Sense force closing, the phone would reset itself regularly, and the battery got hot (which lead to the battery draining quicker than usual) on numerous occasions and had it not been for the PowerSkin Battery case that I bought from Amazon.com, i wouldve got rid of this phone a long time ago.

Im going to upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy Note and not deal with HTC

Something to rival the Galaxy Note, please, but with more power and better battery life.. and maybe ICS, though I'm still ok with Gingerbread

And please, a variant for all carriers, like with the Samsung Galaxy and LG Optimus series
