Korean electronics giant HTC is working on its third major Google Android OS based tablet, currently codenamed as HTC Quattro.
Last week, Peter Chou, chief executive officer of HTC had indicated about the tablet saying that the company is working on a third tablet to bring it to masses in the coming year. A sort of confirmation of the same has now come from PocketNow who claimed to have pictures and details of the HTC Quattro tablet.
According to the report, the HTC Quattro will come with quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 mobile processor which will power its Android operating system. It will come with 10.1 inch touchscreen display with 1280×768 pixel resolution which is quite odd as Acer is already working on a full 1080p HD native resolution supporting tablet A700.
Under the slim chassis of the HTC Quattro, the quad-core processor will rest with 1 GB memory. For starters, the Quattro will come with 16 GB on-board storage. Besides that, the Quattro tablet will feature Bluetooth 4.0 which would not have much of practical use unless supporting devices join the ecosystem. There’s no hint whether the tablet will run Android 4.0 out of the box or not.
HTC also plans to put the Beats Audio technology in this tablet with a pair of speakers and good quality microphones. What’s surprising is that the rear camera would be merely two-megapixel while the front-facing camera would be 1.3 megapixel for video chat.
As of now there’s no hint about the release and price of the tablet but we can expect it to be shown sometime next year only.
Quattro will be the company’s third tablet that will succeed the HTC Flyer and HTC Jetstream. HTC did introduce the power-packed Jetstream tablet but it failed to impress the audience in US due to the price and package offered with carrier exclusivity.
The HTC Quattro would be one of the several quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 running tablets in the competition but the pricing and the Android version will make a difference.
