Mobile World Congress (MWC) is approaching and you should expect our coverage of the event from a hardware perspective. The actual event occurs from February 27th through March 1st although, like most events, we expect that the news coverage will begin a couple of days before that time. Rumors about what will appear at the show are already surfacing and include a few leaks about upcoming HTC releases.

Probably there's a very simple answer to it... still curious though.

(Update: As pointed out in the comments, one of the phones actually IS Tegra 3 powered. I read it as including some other processor... and somehow I only found the LG X3 when looking for Tegra 3 powered phones.)

TechCrunch rounded up details from a few sources about several phones from HTC that are expected at MWC. Ice Cream Sandwich appears to be the common thread amongst each of the leaks. Of particular note, HTC appears to be demonstrating a 10.1” tablet running an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. Their phones, on the other hand, do not. (Update: Yeah they do, my mistake.)

Unlike (Update: Actually, like) HTC, LG is expected to reveal a Tegra-3 powered phone, the LG X3, at Mobile World Congress -- so Tegra 3 phones are not nonexistent -- just seemingly a scarce commodity. It would be interesting to know why NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 technology appears, at least from my standpoint, so common on tablets yet so scarce on phones.

Be sure to keep checking back for our coverage of the event and all of your other hardware needs.

"HTC appears to be demonstrating a 10.1” tablet running an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. Their phones, on the other hand, do not."

The HTC ONE X (aka: HTC Endeavour) is a Tegra3 1.5GHz, 4.7" PHONE with a very sexy spec list, and will be their flagship device.

It IS expected to be shown off at MWC. The test-keys RUU has already leaked for it as well and Android Central was actually several days late on reporting it.

Even in the TechCrunch article, the section devoted to the ONE X even repeats itself as being a Tegra 3 device.

- "Formerly known as the HTC Edge or Endeavor, the Ice Cream Sandwich-powered One X is the company’s first quad-core smartphone thanks to the Tegra 3 chipset buried deep within it."

Thanks for the correction -- I completely botched just about everything with this article, lol.
