A new report has arisen suggesting the quad-core beast formerly known as the Edge is actually called the Supreme.

Speculation regarding the name change began after tech site Pocketnow reported HTC has put the name "Supreme" up for in Europe. The site went on to allege that the move indicated HTC was planning to amend the name of its first quad-core smartphone.

The new "leak" is one of many to stem from Pocketnow, regarding HTC's future, unconfirmed, set of quad-core devices. Prior to its speculation regarding the Supreme/Edge Pocketnow had also issued a series of reports regarding HTC's fabled Quattro tabet.

In its report Pocketnow alleged that HTC's CEO Peter Chou had revealed not only that the mysterious new tablet existed, but also its exact tech spec. According to Pocketnow the Quattro super-tablet will house the same Nvidia AP30 Tegra 3 as the HTC Edge. Additionally the device will reportedly be bigger than Apple's current iPad 2, housing an impressive 10.1-inch, 1,280 x 768 screen.

Not stopping there, Pocketnow reported Chou as confirming that the device would boast 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage -- upgradable via its very own microSD card slot -- and a 2-megapixel rear camera backed up by an even less impressive 1.3-megapixel front facing snapper. Gilding the lily, Pocketnow reported that all this would be contained in an uber-slim 9mm thick case.

Other, currently fictional, quad-core devices associated with HTC include the Zeta smartphone. First reported by Engadget, the new device will reportedly come equipped with a hefty 2.5GHz quad core CPU backed-up by 1GB of RAM. According to Engadget the device will also house a plus-sized 4.5-inch 1280 x 720 display, HTC's own Sense user interface and be powered by 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

Unfortunately for those eager to get their hands on one of the quad-core tech behemoths, HTC is still yet to confirm the existence of, let alone release the tech spec for any of the devices. All request for comment to HTC have been met with the blank statement, "HTC does not comment on rumour or speculation."
