We’ve been hearing about the HTC Ville for some time now but have yet to see it in action. Well that can now be marked off our list as a full walkthrough video of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phone has just landed on YouTube.
HTC Ville with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich caught on video
Running ICS and a layer of HTC Sense Version 4.0, the HTC Ville (likely a codename) resembles other HTC smartphones in terms of design. We see the all too familiar rounded edges and a mesh of metal and rubber (think Google Nexus One).
However things start to get a little strange when you take a closer look at its button layout. The HTC Ville only has 3 capacitive buttons: back, home and screen. What is missing is the search button which obviously was removed to allow for search integration that’s built into Ice Cream Sandwich (on-screen action menus).
Other details revealed in the HTC Ville video walkthrough are its 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch display with qHD resolution, front facing camera, 1GB RAM and 8-megapixel camera.
