HTC Ville specifications leak, will run Ice Cream Sandwich

10 November, 2011

BGR has received information on HTC's upcoming Android smartphone. The device will be officially announced at next year's Mobile World Congress along with the HTC Edge.

The HTC Ville, as is its codename, will be HTC's first phone that will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. But that's not the only version 4.0 software it will be running. It will also be the first phone to run on HTC's upcoming Sense UI 4.0. This may cause some people to cringe but there is no getting away from the fact that custom skins are here to stay and one of the ways Android manufacturers differentiate themselves from one another.

Other specifications include a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display. It would have been nicer to see a HD display but qHD is pretty good too. However since it is a Super AMOLED display, there is a good chance that it will have the dreaded PenTile matrix layout for the sub-pixel.

Inside, the phone will be running on a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Series 4 (Krait) processor. Lastly there will be an 8 megapixel camera on the back with a back-illuminated sensor and 1080p video recording, Beats audio, HSPA+ and a 1,650mAh battery. There apparently won't be any NFC on-board due to the metal construction. Hopefully it won't give rise to the Sensation-like deathgrip issue.
