HTC's Quad Core One X Finally Leaked in Press Image

Can HTC compete against the Galaxy S3
February 23, 2012

Oh PocketNow, where would we be without your far reaching rumorlicious tentacles? No mobile device manufacturer is safe.

It would appear, for all intents and purposes, that the device you are looking at above, is what HTC is planning to unveil at Mobile World Congress 2012.

Make no mistake though, as this upcoming launch is arguably the most important yet for the OEM turned ODM tech company based out of the economic tiger of Asia, Taiwan.

HTC went public not too long ago, saying that their focus in 2012 remains in producing devices of greater quality, and not greater quantity. They had 25.5% lower revenue in 2011, compared with 2010, so they are on many a stockbroker’s watch list, with MWC just around the corner.

Does HTC have what it takes?

No matter how you slice it, this phone has all the characteristics we’ve come to know and love, and bears all the hallmarks of an HTC device. Additionally, the weather Widget appears to be properly attuned to the location of its official unveiling. And, it’s an absolute speed demon under its beautiful exterior.

Previously known as the HTC Endeavor, and also the HTC Edge, it is said to be the first device out of the gate with quad core processing under the hood. Other reliable rumors are pointing to a 4.7 inch 1280×720 HD display, Sense 4.0, an improved camera, and a thinner profile to boot.

What i’m always curious to know about with upcoming device is battery life. Leading manufacturers have taken notice of the favorable response the DROID RAZR MAXX has received, with its gargantuan 3300mAh battery, and are starting to put 2000mAh+ batteries in the latest devices set to be launched at MWC.

Do you like what you see? Can HTC rise to the top of the Android podium again? Anyone thinking Galaxy S3?
