More alleged HTC Endeavor details surface alongside HTC One V nameAlex Wagner - Senior News Editor
The leaky spigot that's been revealing information about unannounced HTC handsets continues to drip today thanks to a new report that claims to have more information on the HTC Endeavor/One X. According to a MoDaCo source, the Endeavor will not have any capacitive navigation keys on its face like previously-leaked renders have shown, instead relying on on-screen keys to get around the phone. The Endeavor is said to have 32GB of internal storage, but it lacks a microSD card slot for expandable memory. Speaking of card slots, the Endeavor will allegedly accept microSIM cards in order to conserve space inside the phone. Finally, some more specs that MoDaCo's tipster claims will make it into the Endeavor include a Super LCD display, 21Mbps HSPA, Android 4.0.3 (though that may jump to 4.0.5 by the time it launches), Sense 4.0, NFC and the usual assortment of sensors and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth 4.0 support.
Keeping up with the HTC leaks, the folks at Pocket-lint have heard that the manufacturer is planning to introduce more devices with the "One _" naming similar to the One X (Endeavor) and One S (Ville) titles that surfaced yesterday. The site has learned that a device dubbed the HTC One V is coming with an alleged spec sheet that includes a 3.7-inch display, 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel shooter, 1GB RAM and Android 4.0 beneath Sense 4.0. Those specs mostly line up with what we heard the HTC Primo would be packing, suggesting that the Primo may become the One V once it launches. Pocket-lint has also heard the name HTC One XL being kicked around, but no details on that device are available.
So far the HTC Endeavor is shaping up to be a pretty spiffy-sounding smartphone as long as the rumors hold true. The lack of expandable storage is kind of a bummer, but I'm sure that there'll be more than a few folks that won't mind overlooking that if the Endeavor does indeed end up packing features like a 4.7-inch 720p display and quad-core Tegra 3 processor. Thankfully the Endeavor is expected to be revealed at Mobile World Congress later this month, so we don't have much longer to wait to see if its rumored features will make the jump to reality. What do you all make of the Endeavor? Think that it could jump to the top of your must-have list when it launches?
