Smartphone maker HTC might go big at Mobile World Congress with a One X handset boasting quad-core horsepower.
Time is certainly ripe for HTC to wow the world with new cutting-edge mobile hardware. Its rivals, Motorola, Samsung, and Sony, have been hard at work churning out a number of fresh phones such as the Droid Razr Maxx, Droid 4, Galaxy Note, and Xperia S. It's enough for HTC devotees to wonder what the company is up to.
Looks like HTC fans won't have to wait long. Multiple gadget blogs such as Pocket-lint, Slashgear, and Pocketnow report that the rumored HTC Endeavor will be officially branded the HTC One X. It's said that under the hood will be an Nvidia Tegra 3 powerhouse making it HTC's first quad-core device. All that graphics and computing prowess will be put to good use as well, driving the One X's vast 4.7-inch screen.
Another device HTC may imminently announce is the HTC One S, previously reported to be the HTC Ville. The phone will run a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor and 4.3-inch display--funny how these specs sound so pedestrian now. Hopefully both handsets will get a scoop of Ice Cream Sandwich but that's still unclear. Rumors do point to the One S (Ville) being an ICS phone running HTC's Sense UI, so I'll wager the One X will make us scream, too.
We do know that HTC is planning on hosting an important press event February 26 at 9 p.m (CET/3 p.m. ET/noon PT) ahead of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Perhaps HTC will confirm other rumored devices there too like the HTC Edge. We'll be on hand covering the news as it develops.
