HTC working on first quad-core phone

Written by Enis Abazovic



Overkill anyone?


HTC has spilled the beans on what appears to be the world’s first quad-core phone, the Nvidia powered HTC Edge.

According to Pocketnow, the new handset will appear sometime in 2012 and it will sport Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-and-change-core processor along with a serving of Ice Cream Sandwich. Other highlights include a 4.7-inch 720p screen, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and an 8MP camera.

The phone seems loosely based on the HTC Titan and it will boast the latest HTC apps and services, also known as bloatware. In terms of performance, the HTC Edge should be second to none. In just over a year high end Android phones have gone from single core 1GHz chips to dual-cores at 1.2GHz – 1.4GHz.

The Edge will raise the bar even further, to 1.5GHz on a 40nm quad-core, but whether anyone really needs that level of performance remains to be seen. In any case, the impressive spec sheet should come in handy for marketing purposes.

And the battery will probably last half a day on load and it will burn your hand if your not careful. 40nm quad core Tegra is completely ridiculous

40nm? wouldn't 32nm/28nm be the way to go? Especially with the battery life of a quad core :S

Krait S processor from Qualcom (ex AMD mobile division) will teach some lessons to this wanna be chip from a desesperate taiwanese company.

Later on, OMAP new release will wipe the floor from green leftovers...

The amount of BS in your post is just off the charts. I hope it's not contagious.

1. Qualcomm is NOT a former AMD division. They BOUGHT AMD's former mobile division, which was formerly ATI's. Qualcomm was founded in 1985.

2. It was the graphics and multimedia division that they bought, not mobile CPU, as they were already making mobile CPUs long before that acquisition.

3. nvidia, that you are calling a "desesperate taiwanese company", is actually an AMERICAN company, based in Santa Clara, California....

4. As I've already wrote in another post, quad-core kraits will be available no sooner than Q4 2012.

5. and TI doesn't have any quads in their roadmap as of now.

P.S.
Qualcomm, not Qualcom.
Desperate, not desesperate.

Calm down whiny, it´s obvious u can't understand more than 3 words in a paragraph, thats why i typed "ex-amd", MORON.

The fact that QCom and TI doesn't need quad to compete against that joke is a long time known fact.

I can´t be arguing with a poor devil like you so take a life.

Oh I understood that perfectly and let me clarify even more. That ex-AMD division is responsible for adreno. They had nothing to do with designing krait, which is the CPU part in snapdragon S4 SoC.

You continue posting anti-nvidia comments, to achieve what exactly?!

More competition is always good. TI and Qualcomm make great chips and with nvidia in the game we shall see better products from all of them and in shorter time frames. All in all it'd result in faster advancements in mobile computing.

Haters like you who mix stupid fanboyism with technology matters have no place here.

May I take this argue as "The fact that Intel doesn't need octa to compete against that joke is a long time known fact"? Will u agree? ;)

Forget the cpu - it's got a 720p screen, wow!

I think the 'more cores=terrible battery' people should get a room with the '3D is a gimmick' people and talk about the good ol' days back when phones didn't have even one definable 'core' and a 2nd dimension that was only 2 LCD cells high.
Remember that 5th core in the tegras? Yeah, the low power one that handles 75%+ of the phones process roster? Quit regurgitating disproved B.S.
