iPhone 4S Rival Alert : HTC Ville Video Appears Online

A video showing the forthcoming HTC Ville has leaked ahead of the forthcoming Mobile World Congress even in Barcelona later this month; it can be viewed below courtesy of French-speaking website HTC-Hub.

The video shows a working model of the HTC Ville which appears to be thinner than the iPhone 4S and will apparently come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Sense UI 4.0, a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.5GHz (possibly the MSM8660), a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with a 960x540 pixels resolution, an eight megapixel camera, HSPA+, a 1650mAh battery and three capacitive buttons in the front.

The phone will be launched at the same time as the HTC Edge which will apparently be based on a quad core processor and could be the new top range smartphone at HTC.

One has to wonder whether the fourth version of the Sense UI will not be the last one given that Android has improved significantly with version 4.0, making any third party addon almost irrelevant.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
