This year’s Consumer Electronics Show is less than a week away and while HTC has plans to announce multiple devices with various carrier partners, the Taiwan-based vendor is seemingly saving its more powerful smartphones for next month. JPMorgan Chase analyst Alvin Kwok wrote in a note to investors on Wednesday that HTC plans to unveil multiple smartphones powered by NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor at Mobile World Congress in February. The handsets will also include Qualcomm’s MSM 8906 4G LTE chipsets, Taiwan-based financial newspaper Commercial Times quoted Kwok as having said. BGR exclusively reported details surrounding the upcoming HTC Edge smartphone, a quad-core Android phone set to be announced at MWC in February. HTC is also expected to unveil the HTC Ville, a dual-core handset thinner than Apple’s iPhone 4S, at next month’s show. While a number of analysts are forecasting a slow year for HTC, Kwok believes the vendor’s shipments will grow 15% in 2012 and 29% in 2013.
