Brief Mobile has leaked the specs of the HTC Ville C (known as just the HTC Ville in the past). The leak reveals the handset to be similar to the One S.
According to the leak, the phone sports a 4.3-inch AMOLED display and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and 1 GB of RAM. However, the Ville C comes packed with a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon S3 processor, which is less powerful compared to the One S’s 1.5 GHz S4 processor.
Although the Ville C looks to be a cheaper version of the One S, it does have one advantage. It comes with HTC’s Sense UI version 4.5 slapped on top of Android, compared to Sense 4.0 on handsets such as the One V, One S, and One X. Unlike other UIs by various Android manufacturers, Sense is more loved than hated. So we’re eager to find out what Sense 4.5 has to offer.
Earlier during the week, the Taiwanese firm unveiled the Desire C, a budget handset. Judging from the way HTC is now naming its handset, does the suffix ‘C’ stand for lower specs? We’ll just have to wait for HTC to officially unveil the Ville C to find out for sure.

BGR first reported on the HTC Ville. However, they showed pics that didn’t reveal much about the rumored smartphone. Now, PocketNow has gotten hold of better leaked photos of the smartphone. These new shots reveal a more metallic design and an 8 mm slim profile. This would make the smartphone the current slimmest in the market.
The HTC Ville is said to run the latest Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich. It will have the Sense UI 4.0 slapped on top of the Android OS. It will pack a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor under the hood. It will sport a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with a qHD resolution. The phone will also sport an 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording capabilities. Furthermore, like the HTC Sensation XE and Sensation XL it will sport Beats Audio technology by Dr. Dre.
What’s most striking about these pictures is the metallic curved design. One other thing that is noticeable is the absence of physical buttons on the front of the device, just like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
Although these are all we currently know about the rumored smartphone, we’re sure we’ll get more information in the coming weeks. The HTC Ville is expected to make an appearance at the Mobile World Congress in February of next year.
