    [Rumor] HTC Concept Phone: Quad-Core 2.5GHz Monster ICS Phone - HTC Zeta


    There is some "rumint" floating about that HTC isn't just working on the quad-core phone, the HTC Edge, but in fact, they are working on another quad-core device that is even more of a beast. This phone is potentially called the Zeta, and it supposedly has some "ridonkulous" specs for a phone (or a tablet for that matter), including Ice Cream Sandwich, and a whopping 2.5GHz quad-core CPU! According to the source of this article, this phone is probably just a concept phone for now, but many prototypes become reality. Here's the breakdown of its other features below:
    • 2.5GHz quad-core APQ8064 processor
    • 1GB of RAM
    • 32GB of internal storage
    • 1,830mAh battery
    • 4.5-inch 720P HD display
    • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Sense UI
    • Beats Audio
    • Bluetooth 4.0
    • 8-megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash and 1080P video capture
    • 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera
    • Measurements: 109.8 x 60.9 x 9.8mm (4.32 x 2.4 x 0.39 inches)
    • Weight: 146g (5.15 ounces)

    If this juggernaut is a phone and not a tablet, it will make just about everything else (that we currently know about) seem pitiful in comparison if they actually make it. How would they keep this thing from melting in your pocket?

    Yeah...I'm not seeing this in the near future. 2.5 GHz CPU, a 720p screen, and an HTC product? Charge it up, walk out the door, check the time.....battery dead.

    I wouldn't be surprised if HTC was working on this.

    If it does have an APQ8064 SnapDragon then I wouldn't expect it out till a full year. I don't believe they are even supposed to hit till Q3/Q4 2012.

    I wonder if we'll still be having 1GB of RAM into 2012. Kind of thought we'd be at 2.

    The Hulk must be bribing the phone manufacturers...Maybe they figure if they make a phone so large you have to hold it with both hands it will cut down on their replacement costs!

    Not just HTC, all manufacturers have got to figure out new technology for they batteries. The processors are overpowering the batteries and the battery life is really starting to get ridiculous. They are about to hit a stumbling block with power and need to start working on the other angles.

    Umm, it's over all size is smaller than the Thunderbolt which is 122 x 66 x 13mm, the Droid X which is 127.5 x 65.5 x 9.9mm and the Bionic 127.5 x 66.9 x 11mm.

    My question is, since it's coming with ICS why the bottom keys why not make the screen a little bigger?

    Pardon my drool - I've never been interested in HTC phones primarily due to their mediocre designs but this concept phone has my attention. Much like concept cars which look insanely awesome but are never put into mass production this phone will likely not be put into the hands of consumers. It looks great and the specs sound amazing but unfortunately most of us live in the real world.

    On a Side Note:
    I wish Motorola would stop letting the carriers dictate whether the bootloader is locked or not.
