Tegra3 is still 40nm Cortex-A9,same as Tegra2,after increase 50% clock speed and have 2 more cores....
Put this battery killer in a phone is foolish
After read the comments, I conclude that the world is separated into 2 groups:
First group filled with realistic, down to the earth people, always said that single or dual core is enough for their life and thinks decent fluidity with decent battery life is the most important thing.
Second group is whiners, also known as internet troll, always said that they need a thousand cores, when the thousand cores come they want a million cores, then billion, trillion or even gazillion.
Get real guys.
arsalanronin, 08 Nov 2011I think 2 gigs of RAM would suit the quad-core badge better.I think you're right about this. 1 GB of Ram isn't enough. This monster phone could be a FAIL if the battery capacity is below 3000 Mah. As I know HTC, they will make the mistake again, and will put 2000 Mah battery, or a little bit more. :( HTC overall is a good company, I am a Samsung AND HTC fan.
HTC is a monster!! They are working very hard, but we don't need Quad Core yet! Dual Core is MORE than enough, but I appreciate their work. By the way a Quad Core phone need at least a 3000 mAh of battery. HTC suck in batteries.
Not enough mAh, 08 Nov 2011Next step is making stronger battery for this beats, because battery like 1800 mAh isnt enough...You can buy bigger batteries :)
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2011looooooooooooooooooolllll how did u use your sg2? as an alarm clock only??????????????Last summer I went for camping and used sgs2 as flash light, camera (30 pictures), 2 x 5min vids, 30 min star map, 10 min call, 30+ text messages both ways, and alarm clock only (flight mode most of the time). It lasted 6 days with about 50% remaining. Pretty funny right?
Remember those days when the mobiles started out massive and then got smaller as time went on?
Lol and now things are just getting bigger, if this continues you'll see the mobiles falling away and we'll end up walking around with a tablet stuck to our face in an attempt to make a phonecall.
AnonD-3929, 08 Nov 2011Hope Galaxy SIII comes out with similar specs. Similar? You mean better spec with 32nm(28nm perhaps?) exynos(Tegra 3 is 40nm), better display and better battery cells.
Karate Obachi, 08 Nov 20112012 = quad core flexible phones; what's the next step?Next step is no more notebooks or PC´s... because quad core smartphones with hdmi out, externa keyboard and mouse will be enought for office/social/browsing... AMAZING!
htc is just trying to copy samsung....I think after heard about galaxy s III that may be also come with a quad core processor, htc leaked this information of their upcoming phone.. But still I hope that samsung galaxy s III will be much better than this one....
One of my biggest problems with HTC has always been there battery they don't last the day. Even if you don't touch the phone by the middle of the day it will be dead.
Now they they are coming out with a quad core, what for to fly you to the moon and back?
I have been using HTC since the Hero but after their announcement of the handsets they will be updating I won't bother a phone that you bought in April is now not able to update. Yep Android will march on but without me
Akshay, 08 Nov 2011First of all, quad core for a smartphone makes no sense. It will suck all juice from the batte... moremy friend, this quad core is more eficient that the tegra 2, thats why is better

Well if it's going to come out with ICS on it why does it have hardware keys???
Doesn't ICS not require these?
this is crazy drain my battery mode.... lol we might have a 6hrs standby and 2hrs usage.... i hope they have develop a new battery...
I'll wait for HTC Edge S, which will most probably come few months after this :)
First of all, quad core for a smartphone makes no sense. It will suck all juice from the battery even if it is a huge one. If Android needs such a processor, it should consider to rewrite its whole software because i don't think any mobile platform needs such processor. Take Symbian for example. It could run smoothly on a 680mhz processor. Concerning the size, it seems that smartphones and tablets are becoming same to same. It's just too big man! A phone is a phone and its size should be considered to fit pockets. Manufactures should bear in mind that smartphones can never replace real cameras or laptops. In my opinion, smartphones should be of maximum 4 inches. If someone wants bigger ones, go for a tablet of 7 or 10 inches :)
