While HTC may be getting ready to unveil a quad-core tablet and smartphone next year at Mobile World Congress, it looks like other companies are jumping ahead as far as they can. Lenovo, for example, is reportedly getting ready to launch a NVIDIA Tegra 3, quad-core tablet not in 2012, but this year, just in time for the holiday shopping season.
The tablet, which you can see in a render above, will feature a 1.6GHz Tegra 3 quad-core processor under the hood; 2GB of RAM; Android 4.0; and a standardized USB port. Other features include a “Special-Skin Fusion body,” which may or may not mean something fantastic for every day users, and a 10.1-inch display. The above features are set upon us by an anonymous source, so keep that in mind with your pinch of salt, just for now.
