HTC has been planning a few chances in the line of it’s suppliers. The company started off fairly well in the smartphone market but has seen a bit of a downward spiral of recent. The new strategy may be to shift to such suppliers which can provide more competent components. A latest scoop from a tech website claims that HTC will soon announce HTC Endeavour and that this smartphone uses a 1.5GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor by Nvidia. If this is so, it means HTC has indeed shifted from Qualcomm to Nvidia.
According to MoDaCo, HTC Endeavor comes packed with the latest Android OS, Ice Cream Sandwich. Moreover, the device has a 4.7-inch 720p screen, 8-megapixel camera and 1 GB of RAM. It also comes with a quad-band HSPA+ radio.
While there is no official reports from HTC about the device or that when or where this device will be first unveiled, it has been claimed that we may be able to lay our eyes, and hands, on the device at Mobile World Congress. Also, if the details claimed by MoDaCo are correct, this clearly means that HTC is finally starting to shift it’s focus away from Qualcomm chips, something which had been at the heart of HTC for many years. And the new focus would then be Nvidia, who has been claiming that it will have it’s chips features in a number of quad-core devices at MWC.
With MWC just around the corner, we just have to wait a bit more to see how much of this round of rumors is true.
