HTC Zeta: Quad-core 2.5GHz CPU superphone rocking Ice Cream Sandwich?
Engadget has just received a tip and renders of what is purported to be a new HTC flagship device codenamed Zeta. The “almost too good to be true” specs include 2.5GHz quad-core next-gen Snapdragon CPU and 1GB of RAM powering a 4.5 inch 720p HD display. The phone is also reported to come with an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and of course Beats Audio.

Any phone using the next generation Snapdragon chipset would come with the new Adreno 225 GPU that is said to bring a 4x improvement in graphics performance. The chipset will also be built on the new 28nm die process, resulting in energy savings of up to 75% over current chipsets.

The render of the Zeta shows off a phone that appears to take styling cues from the HTC Edge, though with sharper corners and a more industrial look. While price and availability were not reported, Qualcomm has previously announced that the Krait SoC would start shipping in the first half of 2012, so look for this beast no earlier than next fall. With that much time left the physical design could still change substantially between now and whenever it is announced.

Is this the direction that HTC should head in terms of aesthetics? What do you guys think?
