BGR has a scoop on another brand new HTC handset, which will be part of the company’s Mobile World Congress announcements alongside the HTC Edge that leaked yesterday.
The HTC Ville (codename) is set to launch in April with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and, for the first time, HTC Sense 4.0. The smartphone will feature a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, and is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon Series 4 processor. In addition to those specifications, the HTC Ville will house an 8-megapixel backside-illuminated camera, just like the one on the HTC Edge, with 1080p HD video capture support.
The handset won’t feature NFC due to the metal construction of the case, and it will be less than 8mm thick and it will be a HSPA+ device powered by a 1,650 mAh battery, and of course Beats audio processing will be included as well.
It seems that this phone is placed just below the Edge as it lacks the HD screen that new Android phones have started adopting and will be widespread by next April when it is released.
