HTC Endeavor (HTC Edge) Specs Appear In Leaked ROM

By Killian Bell on February 13, 2012 in HTC

The HTC Edge first leaked back in November, and was rumored to be the Taiwanese company’s first Tegra 3 quad-core smartphone. Just a couple of days ago, we discovered that its name was changed to the HTC Endeavor internally, and now we have the device’s internal specifications, thanks to a leaked ROM.

As expected, the device will be a flagship handset packing an NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip, according toPocketNow, with a 720p display, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

The ROM, which was posted to the XDA Developers forums, also reveals that the Endeavor will offer Wi-Fi a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. But its most exciting features include the Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and the HTC Sense 4.0 user interface.
That’s right, not only will the Endeavor — which is believed to be its real retail name — be HTC’s first quad-core smartphone, but it’ll also be one of the first to ship with Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.

Now, I know you’re itching to know when the device will arrive. Rumor has it that the Endeavor will show its face at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month. So you’ll be pleased to know that there isn’t long to wait.

I think the HTC Endeavor sounds like it’s going to be a fantastic Android device, but what do you think?

Image of Motorola’s First Intel-powered Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Phone Leaked

Motorola Intel Android ICS

During the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year, Intel announced that it was partnering with Motorola Mobility to launch the first Intel-powered smartphones. Now, a leaked image fromPocketnow suggests that Motorola Mobility not only has an Intel-powered smartphone in the works, but also one powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The device will no doubt be important for both companies. Motorola Mobility has yet to launch an Android Ice Cream Sandwich device and Intel desperately wants to gain share in a mobile market dominated by Qualcomm, NVIDIA, Samsung, Texas Instruments, ARM and others.

So far, we’re digging the thin design and the metal accents even though the phone looks a bit similar to the Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX, save for the touch-sensitive buttons at the bottom of the display. Unfortunately, the device still doesn’t have a name and it’s unclear what kind of specs it will offer. It is possible we will hear more during Mobile World Congress later this month but we have a feeling that might be too soon for an announcement.
