The once rumoured HTC Ville – a powerhouse Android device – has been captured in a 3 minute video. Clearly showing off its 4.3-inch qHD display, rounded edges and HTC Sense 4.0. The specs that previously leaked were correct with a 1.5Ghz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM, 8 megapixel camera and a VGA front-facing camera. Overall, it’s looking like a pretty sweet Android, which is also running OS 4.0.1. Check it out above… now only a few weeks until it’s officially announced at MWC.

    This video made me sad, HTC clearly doesn’t understand Googles direction

  • me

    I think it looks awesome, though, sense 4.0 doesn’t look much different.

  • BM

    neat screen transition. still looks like full sense bloat though!

  • PhoneScience

    So, dual 1.5 Ghz cores, 4.3″ qHD and a 8 mp camera. This is just the Amaze 4G’s skinny sister with a prettier dress (Sense 4.0/ICS)

  • Mike

    I swear we have seen phones just like this one from HTC

  • Non

    Whao this guy is brave, not only he shows the serial number of a leaked phone he also didnt blur his own number lol. Besides software version looks like prebeta stuff, i hope HTC will fix laggy ui

  • DarkisFever

    If this is the final result for Sense 4.0 then I am actually quite disappointed :(. Stock ICS is an amazing achievement for Google and I enjoy everything about it. If Sense 4.0 looks like that video does then it takes away a lot of the design qualities I enjoy from ICS and just makes it look more like Gingerbread. Overall I imagine it will be a good experience for the users but after having stock ICS for about a month now I just feel like that is going to far away from what ICS really looks like.

    Why is the front camera only VGA? It should at least be 1.3M or 2.0M.

    Here is my observation:

    1) Sense UI is a lot lighter. Launcher is very similar to stock or ADW.
    2) Phone is very thin; looks very attractive. Love they keep capacitive button (regardless your preference, capacitive button is more responsive than virtual ones)
    3) UI is a bit choppy in this beta version, hopefully it will be gone in the final release build.
    4) This is Amaze’s thinner twin. Which is a fantastic thing.
    5) Keep in mind Edge is the premium device; Ville is the mid range phone (unbelievable a 1.5 ghz dual core phone is mid-range).

    Overall HTC is heading to the right direction which fewer devices and lighter Sense.

      According to Engadget, the Edge is now the Ville. Don’t get your hopes up that much. And mid-range with 4.3 inch screen? Doubt it…

    Where do I sign?

    This video is private

  • picks

    “this video is private” anyone repost this?

    • Mike

      It wasn’t private earlier this morning when I viewed it. But it is now. I guess the guy that posted the video realized he shouldn’t have?

  • nade

    Privatized. What blasphemy is this?

  • 69iner

    dammit miss it!

  • sim bob

    damnit, I wanted to see this video

  • Lawlerballer

    “1.5Ghz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM, 8 megapixel camera and a VGA front-facing camera”

    So expect HTC to announce another device 2 weeks later with
    1.6Ghz dual-core, 1GB RAM, 12 Mp cam, and 1.3 Mp FFC and maybe a phone that doesn’t get dust inside the screen

  • Meh

    The new UI is horrible… it looks like the stock Gingerbread launcher with ugly icons. Stock ICS and Sense 3.0 look way better.

    Very disappointing.

  • Cody

    Wow, this is terrible for htc………

  • zzZZzz

    running Sense 3.6 on ICS 4.0.3. Liking it

  • tweak_four17

    Didn’t see much that was different from sense 3.0 except may the rolodex style animations for the settings…am I missing something?

  • alex

    1.5 dual core S4 series chip not like Amaze S3 series
