HTC Zeta Breaks Cover With 2.5GHz Quad-Core Processor in Tow

Holy humpback smartphone. You are looking at a render (of course) of one of HTC’s future devices known internally as the Zeta. The phone – according to sources – will have a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4.5″ 720p HD display, 32GB of internal storage, 1830mAh battery, Beats Audio, Bluetooth 4.0, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, and will run Ice Cream Sandwich out of the gate. Sound too good to be true? Tough to say. It’s a unique design, and one that definitely does not fit the style that HTC has stuck to for the last 3 or 4 years. We would most certainly welcome in a change of this sort though. Fresh design ideas are needed in more ways than I can even express at this point.

Obviously we know nothing about a release date, price or if this puppy is even real will ever see the light of day. We can cross our fingers while doing our best Fergie impression though…my humps.

    Pretty cool..I like how hTc tightened up (tapered) the edges on the back and the bezel on the front. I would prefer the clean, no-button look on the screen though…like the GNex!!!

    Hmmm, not a bad looking phone. The sharp edges are a nice change from their current look. They should just ditch the soft keys, but these ones seem to take up smaller amount of space than usual. However, I don’t like the back at all.

  • no 5G? passin on this one

    I love the design very modern and sophisticated, if yu’re into that sort of thing lol Love it, Is that a Kickstand on the back?? Probably so. I would lik to see a Kickstand on more devices IMO. 

    And 2.5ghz Wow, more Ram please with the addition of better games and Apps our hunger for more storage will grow. Nice specs and nice design.

     My only hope is the beats by Dre like Kellex posted on the Rezound, needs to stream all music through bats not just the native app player.

    If real, easily the best looking HTC phone.

      the backside is ugly but the front is pretty nice, the shape is similar to that of a moto device.

    so I’m guessing the guy who made the render doesn’t know jack about ICS if he put physical buttons on the phone…

  • Rob

    Why does it have buttons if it’s supposed to run ICS?

    I like the thin bezel on the sides but I think the back is fugly.

  • I love the tiny bezel. Such a polished look. Has anyone taken a look at the newer Samsung T.V.’s, with the impossibly thin bezel. If samsung would model their next phone after that product, I think it would sell like effin hotcakes.

    The rate contracts go I wont see dual core ill see quad core…. I like it!! Just wish screen was more big cus of the note.

    HTC is not good at cutting edge, (Thunderbolt) I’ll wait for Motorola…I’m starting to see a pattern, Motorola does cutting edge and innovation, HTC is in between, and Samsung refines the innovation.  Just wish Samsung wasn’t so cheap feeling and didn’t have a bad rap for their radios.

    ADVICE to HTC:
    Get the phone out into the public, patent the quad core – leave apple in the dust never to have a quad core ever and to  remain with a dual core FOREVER!

    WoW! cool phone))research papers

    no hopes are held high for this fantasy phone because I remember last year when San Jay Motorola’s CEO proclaimed to the world that we could expect a 2GHZ processor phone by the end of 2010… Then 2011 came in and oh guess what? I still don’t own a 2GHZ phone… These filthy swine, all they do is get our blood boiling with lust for such a fantastic piece of equipment.

    What the hell is this? Seriously HTC needs to put their phone on a diet and go for some comestic surgery….That phone is uuuuuuuuugly.

  • Jtz

    The first phone to ever need a car battery to work, SWEET can’t wait…..

  • Damn. At this point, I’ll NEVER renew my 2-year contract. {{o_0}}

  • Lgreg64

    at this rate the zoom will be a phone an not a tablet. how big is to big.

  • Ahsan

    Imagine the battery life!

  • Looks slippery.  Like it would slip right out of your palm, hit the floor and crack.

  • 好文章,转啦

  • jbonics

    They found a battery that last 10x longer now they want to make a phone that last 9 hours.

  • Advantage Held

    ICS and capacative buttons? Meh BS

  • #UGLY Looks like a PIG

  • @fvqu:disqus Why add all that processing power and no additional RAM? at least bump it up a gig…Oh gosh why did charlie have to beat the producers!? I can’t believe it!! Check this video: http://zapit.nu/1hM

    I like the tiny bezel on the mockup. Why would they make it look so bulky on a mockup photo, that’s the place where you’re allowed to lie a little.

    edit: looking more it’s probably not all that fat. The tapered edges just exaggerate it.

  • JM

    this officially just became a pissing contest
    i am going to ios!!! JK!

  • I dont care what OS is on this device …. This ish is Ugly …. Straight up …

    Not surprised that this is HTC’s.. among all Android OEMs, they are the ones so eager to play the “numbers game”.

  • Billyrouth2000

    Can anyone say UGLY?

  • Anonymous

    Well shit, guess I won’t be buying a new razr, nexus, or rezound till I can be sure when the quad-core devices are coming…I mean I’m not one of those “Dammit and I just bought a new [insert generic high-end smartphone here]” people, but now I’m getting worried.
    Maybe my priorities are FUBAR, my damn pc is still chugging along with one core!

  • Adam Metzner

    Why does it have keys under the screen if its running ICS out the gate?

    • Anonymous

      Wondering this too… are the OEMs gonna keep putting keys there just because they think it’s too big a change for the average user?  That’s kinda crappy if so.

    This device is to big. It should of come with 2000 mah battery.

  • Billy Jenkins

    this phone is butt ugly.
