HTC Edge: Quad-core handset pictured and detailed

Could the HTC Edge be the first smartphone to come rocking with Nvidia's Tegra 3 power behind it?

Quite possibly, if reports and a professional looking picture are to be believed. PocketNow.com has dropped some juicy details on the supposed Kal-El device; one which definitely looks like being a heavyweight contender should it ever become a reality.

And that's because it's packing the quad-core setup that Tegra 3 affords - so four 1.5GHz chips doing all the hard-work. Other than that, specs should be pretty similar to the recently announced HTC Rezound, albeit with a bigger screen at 4.7 inches.

At a purported 10mm+ thick, the Edge is no skinny-minny, but with Beats Audio, Bluetooth 4.0 and possibly even HTC Sense 4.0 - there's plenty to get excited about.

There's a lack of 4G action, just 21Mbps HSDPA, but this could be a good thing when it comes to the chances of a UK launch.

No word on the Android version, but if it does arrive in Q1 or Q2 next year, as is estimated, and it's not rocking Ice Cream Sandwich we'd be surprised.
