Quad-core HTC Edge confirmed to be Endeavour

We've heard that HTC's quad-core-packing Edge will actually be known as the HTC Endeavour and it'll launch on 26 February at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.


The Android-powered Endeavour will be one of the first phones to come with a microSIM slot, joining the iPhone 4(S), Nokia Lumia 800 and Motorola RAZR on the shrunken-SIM route. Like the Sensation XE and XL, the Endeavour will come with Beats Audio software for music enhancement, though unlike its predecessors, it won't be bundled with the Beats headphones.


It's most likely going to launch with Ice Cream Sandwich, making it the first to the gates after the latest Android update debuted in the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.


But if its rumoured spec lineup of 1.5GHz Tegra 3 chip, eight-meg snapper and 4.7-inch screen are true, even more impressive is its purported price tag: £375 SIM-free when it hits the shelves in April.


The Endeavour will be shown alongside the HTC Ville, HTC's thinnest phone ever at 8mm. This will also come with a microSIM slot and Beats Audio, but with its smaller 4.3-inch screen and dual-core 1.5GHz chip, it should clock in at a lower price than the Endeavour.


We've also had wind of a lower-cost phone, the HTC Primo with a 3.7-inch screen, meant to land sometime in Q2 at around £150.


We're expecting to see all three phones at Mobile World Congress in February, so we'll have the full spec rundown with hands-on photos and thoughts then!
