HTC 1.7GHz Quad-Core Android Shows In Benchmarks; New One-Series Model?
HTC was quick on the draw with quad-core smartphones, getting its One X to market well in advance of Samsung and LG’s quad-core entries. Since then, we’ve seen models like the Droid Incredible 4G LTE arrive, but nothing really up there on the same level as the One X. Well, HTC may be planning to one-up itself with its model PM63100, revealed through some benchmark figures and sporting some decent hardware.
According to the data published over at GLBenchmark, the PM63100 goes by the codename “evitareul”; that may be supposed to be read as Evitare UL, implying some sort of evolutionary step beyond the Evita, the codename HTC used for the One XL.
This Evitare is running a quad-core Tegra 3, but unlike the 1.5GHz One X, this time the chip is clocked up to 1.7GHz. The phone maintains a 720p display (no clue as to its size just yet), and though this data shows it in testing running Ice Cream Sandwich, it’s conceivable we could see it arrive with Jelly Bean.
HTC appears to be preparing the Evitare for AT&T, where it will use the carrier’s LTE network.
