We’ve been following the HTC Edge in its long road of becoming the world’s first quad-core smartphone for some time now. The Edge was first leaked back in November last year and while we are expecting an official announcement soon, it seems that it has been renamed to Endeavor.
Besides the name change, the HTC Endeavor is still the same at heart, said to be running on a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC maxing out at 1.5GHz. It will have a large 4.7-inch optically laminated 720p HD display — optical lamination gets rid of the air gap between the touchscreen and the front glass, improving image quality and touch experience. HTC’s new flagship smartphone with run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC’s new Sense 4.0 UI.
A leaked ROM for the Endeavor has confirmed DropBox integration but also integration of Microsoft’s Skydrive cloud storage solution. The device will have all the bells-and-whistles you can image, from Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, 8-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front cameras.
Previous rumors put the HTC Endeavor at just 8.8mm thick, a hair thinner than the Galaxy Nexus, with a 1,800mAh battery.
You can expect the device to be announced on February 26th at the MWC 2012 in Barcelona.
