HTCCiting the Chinese-language Commercial Times, a report by Digitimes suggests that HTC will unveil new flagship smartphones at MWC in February. These are to sport quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processors and LTE-enabled Qualcomm MSM 8906 chipsets. The report does not identify specific devices but they could be the HTC Elite and HTC Edge. Or perhaps the HTC Zeta?
