HTC Edge to carry 720p LCD, Tegra 3, Beats

HTC's most ambitious Android phone ever may have been unveiled in a sighting that matched both a press shot and details. Just called the Edge, the device would be the first phone with the upcoming Tegra 3, PocketNow heard. The AP30 chip would clock in at 1.5GHz on its four cores and possibly double the speed of a phone like the Rezound.

It would have a 4.7-inch screen like the Sensation XL, but would jump from the low-density 480x800 screen to a much sharper 720p. Beats Audio would come with the phone along with a possible upgrade to 21Mbps 3G (up from 14.4Mbps), 32GB of internal storage, and Bluetooth 4.0.

An eight-megapixel, f2.2, 28mm rear camera would be identical to that in the Vivid.

Softwarecould be an equal part of the story. It's not known if the phone will ship with Android 4.0, but if not, it could have a much expanded library of content. HTC Watch movies would be upgraded to HD, while HTC Play might take advantage of the OnLive deal and HTC Read would supply books. Some of the story has been called into question by mentioning the just shutting down Listen music store, although the site has historically been very accurate with HTC device leaks.

Given HTC's history of unveiling its main phone line at Mobile World Congress in February, the Edge is likely to appear in late winter or early spring.
