Rumours about HTC launching a quad-core handset at the Mobile World Conference event in Barcelona have been floating around the Internet since November. The handset, all this while went by the name Edge and besides the name there were some specifications to go by as well. However, according to an exclusive report by Pocketnow, a trusted source has informed the website that instead of the name Edge, the smartphone will instead be unveiled under the name Endeavor.

A speedy handset coming next year

The speedy handset gets a name change

The report states that the decision behind the change of name was probably due to the fact that the details of the handset have been leaked in all its entirety ahead of its scheduled MWC announcement. They go on to add, “Like any B2C organization, HTC wants to build up some buzz for its products prior to their introduction, but not so far ahead of time that its ability to operate in secrecy is hindered.”

Though the name of the handset appears to be changed, the specifications seem to be the same. Here is a quick look at the supposed specifications of the HTC Endeavor:

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC Sense 4.0 UI
  • 4.7-inch screen with an HD resolution
  • A little over 10mm thick
  • NVIDIA AP30 Tegra 3 1.5GHz quad-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear camera with f/2.2 lens and 720p video recording capabilities
  • 32GB internal memory
  • 21Mbps HSDPA
  • Bluetooth 4.0

From the looks of it, HTC has quite a list of handsets that are expected to make an appearance at the event that starts later on this month. Besides the Edge/ Endeavor, the brand may also announce the Zeta and the Ville, the former also being a quad-core smartphone that is clocked at 2.5GHz. In recent times, there have been a lot of talks about the HTC Ville as a leaked video and multiple images have surfaced. But not many details have surfaced regarding the Zeta. Here’s hoping HTC has a great showing at MWC with the brand not just launching a single handset but a range of devices. Let us know your reactions about the HTC Endeavor in the comments below.
