HTC Ville on its way to T-Mobile
Last year, two upcoming high-end HTC Android smartphones leaked – the HTC Edge with a quad-core processor, and the HTC Ville, with ‘just’ a dual-core CPU. But after a couple of bits in November, we haven’t heard anything about the Ville so far. The Taiwanese company didn’t announce it, but perhaps that will happen during MWC next month.
In the meantime, PocketNow has learned that the HTC Ville will be offered by T-Mobile in the US. That’s not a surprise, since the magenta carrier does have a lot of love for top of the line Android devices. Unfortunately, it’s not known at this point when the Ville will be launched (or what it will end up being called, for that matter, since Ville is almost certainly just a codename).
The HTC Ville is rumored to be the company’s slimmest smartphone yet, with under 8mm thickness, and it will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich when it launches (which will probably happen in April). The HTC Ville will have a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, a 4.3-inch qHD (960×540) AMOLED touchscreen, a ‘point-and-shoot quality’ camera (possibly with an 8 MP backside illuminated sensor), 1080p HD video recording support, Beats Audio, and a totally new version of HTC’s Sense UI.
