Rumor: HTC Zeta to feature 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 4.5-inch 720p HD display and Ice Cream Sandwich
Anyone who thought that last week’s rumored HTC devices were intriguing, you’re going ot love the latest rumor which surfaced this afternoon. According to Engadget, HTC is working on a new Android powered phone named the HTC Zeta. The new device is rumored to feature specs which would make it as powerful as many of today’s laptop and desktop computers. The rumored HTC Zeta is said to feature a 2.5GHz APQ8064 quad-core Qualcomm S4 CPU with 1GB of RAM and a 4.5-inch 720p HD display. Other specs on the HTC Zeta may include 32 GB of internal storage, 8 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, 1,830mAh battery, and will be enclosed in a unibody shell which measures 109.8 x 60.9 x 9.8mm.
As with the other two rumored HTC devices (HTC Edge and HTC Ville), the HTC Zeta will be powered by Android 4.0 with HTC Sense (presumably Sense 4.0). The images show that the HTC Zeta will still feature the standard capacitive buttons below the display – an odd design choice, considering that Android 4.0 will feature on-screen buttons which serve the same purpose.
We have to admit that we’ve extremely excited about the rumored HTC Zeta. The phone’s hardware put it miles ahead of the competition, but that doesn’t really mean much since we don’t think the Zeta will be on the market any time soon. Qualcomm has been very clear that its S4 quad-core processor wouldn’t be ready until late 2012.
