The specs, which were unearthed alongside new images of the HTC flagship (right) reveal that – as expected – the phone will pack a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor. This will come paired with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC’s still-unofficial Sense 4.0 UI. This, according to previous speculation, will equip the Ville with a redesigned interface, improved 3D widgets and enhanced HTC content services.
The HTC Ville, which is likely to be renamed at launch, will also tout a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED screen, an 8 megapixel primary camera with 1080p HD video, a 3 megapixel front-facing shooter, Beats Audio, fast internet connectivity and a 1650mAh battery.
The svelte Ville will supposedly be unveiled alongside the mooted HTC Supreme (Edge), which will launch as the firm’s debut-quad core smartphone.
