If you’ve been secretly planning to change your smartphone, you may want to wait until February as the new line of quad-core Android superphones are about to take centerstage. Although most were nowhere to be found at CES 2012, rumor has it that they will be making their launch at the Mobile World Conference to be held in Barcelona.

AndroidAuthority has previously talked about upcoming quad-core smartphones but now, we give you a full list (so far) of the devices that are powered by this mega-experience.

HTC Edge

Although silent, HTC has been rumored to have the first ever Android quad-core phone to reach US shores. With the leaked information about the features of the HTC Edge, you get the following features:

  • 1.5 GHz quad-core MSM 8906 processor
  • Tegra 3
  • 4.7-inch screen with 720p resolution
  • 8MP camera with LED flash
  • 2MP front facing camera
  • Beats Audio
  • NFC

Samsung Galaxy S3

 As the successor of the highly successful Samsung Galaxy S2, the Galaxy S3 is probably one of the most anticipated quad-core smartphones. Rumors about its features include:

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI
  • 4.6 inch HD Super AMOLED Plus display
  • 1.5 GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor
  • 1.5-2 GB RAM
  • 12 MP rear camera

Many are also hoping that this would include Android’s latest OS, the Ice Cream Sandwich.

Meizu MX

Although we got word last year that Meizu MX will be launching their quad-core model, we’re still waiting for it. Here are the features of the quad-core smartphone:

  • 4.0-inch touch screen with 292 ppi resolution
  • 32GB internal memory
  • 8MP camera
  • Front-facing camera
