HTC has sent out invites to promote the company's next major event to be held on February 26th. This has led to speculation that the company might release its quad core smartphone HTC Edge just a day before the MWC.

If rumours are to be believed, the HTC Edge will feature a 720p screen and will be powered by 1.5GHz quad core Tegra 3 chipset from NVIDIA. HTC might also be planning a huge scale event launch for this device, reports GSM Arena.
