HTC Ville details leaked
It looks like the HTC Edge isn't the only HTC superphone on the horizon. BGR has learned that there will also be a device codenamed the HTC Ville which will launch with Sense 4.0 as well as Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

HTC Ville details leaked
Because the Ville will be launching with ICS, that means no physical function buttons, just a nice clean face for those virtual buttons. That face will be a 4.3" qHD Super AMOLED display, which isn't quite at the same level as the 720p screen expected in the HTC Edge, but it should do the job well. Inside the Ville will be a dual-core Snapdragon S4 clocked at 1.5 GHz. It is expected to have the same 8 MP backside-illuminated camera found in the Edge, which will be capable of 1080p video capture. 

Rounding out the specs, the Ville is said to not have NFC because of the issues with the metal casing, but the phone will be slick at under 8mm thick. Of course, there will be Beats audio, and it will be HSPA+, so we could see it on either AT&T or T-Mobile here in the States. Lastly, it's said to be packing a 1650 mAh battery, which seems a bit on the small side, but we'll have to wait and see how that plays out.

The HTC Edge has already been rumored to have the Tegra 3 Kal El quad core processor.

They will release it next year. Dual cores are powerful enough at this moment.
You want to have polished phone or prototype? It takes time to familirize with new technology and make it work properly.

they are getting it, but a phone takes time to be properly tested before they are being sold.. So quad core will most probably be out at mid 2012 :D with concept coming up at early 2012

this looks like the old Incredible S/2 rendering but whatever. i'll look forward to seeing this and it's MSM8960's performance.

Well that's strange, the Edge which is supposedly better than the Ville has capacitive buttons but the Ville doesn't, if this remains correct it would be a big mistake from HTC, because a all black front with that beautiful metal backing would surely look awesome

I give it 6 months before another android manfucturer makes a knockoff of this version. Maybe 3-4 months if the low-end android OEM is highly motivated. It's amazing this race of how the HTC and Samsungs are racing to bring out new products because of the speed of the knockoff.

Again, I am not saying the knockoff will be the same, but copying the specs like 4.3" qHD superamoled display or a dual-core Snapdragon S4 or even the 8 mm thickness is child's play for the knock off artist. These main land chinese companies are very creative when making knock offs.
