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.
