HTC Ville appears with Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC Sense 4.0

Pictures have emerged of a new Android handset from HTC with form factor slimmer than the iPhone.

Running Android 4.0 Ice Cream, the HTC Ville is apparently due to launch in April and BGR is reporting it will be the first device to run HTC Sense 4.0.

Constructed from metal, it is apparently just 8.8mm deep, but is powered by a 1.5Ghz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon Series 4 processor,

The screen is one of the most impressive features, at 4.3-inches with a qHD resolution it includes Super AMOLED screen – one of the first times the technology has been used by HTC. The HTC Desire of course included AMOLED technology when it was first released.

Like the HTC Sensation XE and HTC Sensation XL Beats audio support is onboard and it includes an 8-megapixel camera with an backlit sensor, which also offers full HD movie capture.

Just yesterday pictures leaked showing the HTC Edge, which will apparently be one of the first phones to included the new quad-core Tegra 3 chip, officially confirmed by Nvidia today.

There’s only one picture available of the HTC Ville at the moment and we think it looks a bit conventional. It looks similar to the Sensation XL rather than the XE but lacks the traditional Android controls and there doesn’t appear to be a front-facing camera. We’re excited by the thought of HTC Sense 4.0 though.

HTC of course has yet to officially announce the phone or proper name, but all is apparently due to be revealed at Mobile World Congress in February.
