Cheer up, Desire C, it looks like you won’t be the only C device in HTC’s growing list of smartphones, despite the manufacturer’s pledge to release fewer devices this year.
A leaked screenshot of the HTC Ville C has been unearthed by the folks at BriefMobile, but not of the phone – just the specs. According to their source, the HTC Ville C will be offered as a more affordable alternative to the HTC One S. Let’s check out what the HTC Ville C supposedly has under its casing.
Starting from the exterior, the HTC Ville C is expected to be another ultra slim phone, but at this point, we can’t tell if it’s going to be as gorgeously thin as the HTC One S. From the picture, it appears the phone will be powered by a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm MSM8260 S3 processor. But don’t get too excited just yet, because this was apparently a mistype and the actual speed is clocked at 1.2GHz. As for other specs, the HTC Ville C will come with a 4.3-inch qHD AMOLED screen, 16GB internal storage, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, VGA front camera, and 1,650mAh battery.
Unsurprisingly, the HTC Ville C will get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The surprising part is seeing HTC Sense 4.5 being listed there. If it’s right on the money, we may see HTC rolling out the 4.5 UI overlay to its trio of flagship models before we see the HTC Ville C being released. Except for the S3 processor, the specs we’re seeing of the HTC Ville C now are very similar to HTC One S. Hopefully some pictures of the HTC Ville C will leak in the coming days to see how much resemblance it’ll have to the One S.
Are you digging the specs of the HTC Ville C so far, especially if it’ll be offered cheaper than the HTC One S?
