Now that dual-core phones are a dime a dozen, what's next? Quad-core phones, like this leaked HTC Edge, if the photos are correct.

An Nvidia Tegra 3 processor accounts for the 1.5GHz quad-core processing prowess, according to PocketNow. The Edge also supposedly boasts a 4.7-inch display with 720p HD resolution, an 8-megapixel camera with a backlit sensor and 28-millimeter, f/2.2 lens, It's also reputed to have 1GB RAM and measure about 0.4 inch thick.

Sound a lot like the freshly announced HTC Rezound? As this rumor pans out, expect the specs to line up with the Rezound, including LTE and a bump to an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. But don't expect to see it until 2012.
