Shortly after HTC announced the upcoming availability of the Desire C, formerly known as HTC Golf, new information emerged that indicates there’s another Android phone heading to the US market.
The guys over at BriefMobile
have been tipped on the unannounced HTC Ville C device, which is supposed to be introduced in North America as a cheaper version of the One S.
It appears that HTC Ville
C’s specs are slightly lower than One S hardware configuration, but much better than Desire C’s.
The phone is equipped with a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 (Qualcomm MSM8260) processor, which is complemented by 1GB of RAM. Although the CPU is listed at 1.7 GHz in the leaked document, BriefMobile’s trusted source claims it’s just a typo.
Moreover, the Ville C is powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system integrated with HTC Sense
The latter may be another typo, though we know HTC is currently working on the next version of Sense. Either way, the smartphone will clearly come with HTC’s proprietary user interface on top of Ice Cream Sandwich.
Furthermore, the handset will sport a 4.3-inch qHD AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports 540 x 960 pixels resolution and 16 million colors.
Design-wise, HTC Ville C is said to feature an “ultra-slim” form factor, though we don’t have any details on the smartphone’s actual size.
On the back, the device packs an 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, BSI sensor, LED flash, full HD (1080p) video recording with stereo sound and image chip. There’s also a secondary VGA front-facing camera for video calls.
Last but not least, HTC Ville C drains battery from a 1650 mAh Li-Ion battery and comes pre-loaded with Navigation Framework, Google Widget and HTC Widget Manager. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
