The Mobile World Congress in Barcelona will be the venue chosen in just a few days for the submission of HTC Endeavour. This is the first handset featuring a quad-core processor and hopes to boost the Taiwanese manufacturer in the race with rivals such as Samsung and Apple.
It seems that 2012 is the year terminals with quad core processors. Several manufacturers have confirmed the inclusion of these powerful chips in their upcoming devices and HTC will be the first to hit the market with what it has been finally named HTC Endeavour, formerly known as HTC Edge.
Although the Taiwanese manufacturer is having a bad time after 2011, which was not the best year for HTC, it seems not ready to resign and will focus on a power terminal in order recover ground and be able to stand up to other companies that have won the game (at least last year) as Apple with its iPhone 4S or Samsung with its Galaxy S II. Within a few days, this wonder of technology will be presented officially, but, of course, the web is already full with the detailed official features of the HTC Endeavour.
On the interior, it will feature a Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, with a frequency of 1.5 GHz accompanied by 1 GB of RAM. The wide screen is also something to remember, 4.7 inch with HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (312 pixels per inch), which would place it alongside the wider screen handsets like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and probably the future Samsung Galaxy S III, whose presence at the show in Barcelona is practically ruled out.
The new HTC Endeavour terminal will have an 8 megapixel camera, offering the possibility to record video in HD. Its front camera for video conferencing will have a 1.3 megapixel sensor. As usual for the terminals of the Asian firm, it will have the Sense 4.0 interface that will offer its version of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich , the operating system chosen for the HTC Endeavour.
Also, it is expected to offer synchronization with virtual storage platforms like Dropbox and SkyDrive, and basically extending its storage capacity with these online services. Both its presentation and launch seem imminent. According to initial reports, Europe might be the targeted market for this device, even though it is still unknown at what price it will go on sale.
