While we already know the world's first quad-core tablet will be the ASUS Transformer Prime, we just got a glimpse of the first quad-core phone. It's rumored to be called the HTC Edge, and the hardware sounds completely beast.


  • 4.7-inch 720p display
  • 1.5GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP f/2.2 lens
  • 10mm thick

There is one small detail that you may have already noticed: capacitive buttons. Of course, that doesn't mean this phone won't come with ICS right out of the gate, it just means that it won't take advantage of on-screen buttons.

According to PocketNow, we could see this device hit stores in late Q1 or early Q2 of next year, though carrier info is nowhere to be found.

Does knowing that quad-core phones are right around the corner make you hesitant to pick of any of the dual-core devices expected by the end of the year?
