We recently told you about an upcoming handset from HTC called the Edge that appeared, which is set to feature the new Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. Now we have news of the Sense 4.0 running HTC Ville that will be sporting Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

There always seems loads of new smartphones being worked on by manufacturers on the Android platform. BGR are reporting that the HTC Ville will come with a 4.3-inch qHD display and will be powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor.

The updated HTC Sense 4.0 UI is also rumored to be installed on the handset, and will include an eight megapixel camera with a backside illuminated sensor. There will also be support for 1080p video capture. A 1650 mAh battery will be providing the power to the handset that is thought will be HSPA+.

You will get the standard Beats Audio refinements now seen with HTC handsets, but there will be no NFC support because of the all-metal casing that is reportedly less than 8mm thick. The image shows there are no physical or touch sensitive buttons beneath the display, as the new Android operating system puts these onto the display itself.

It is thought the name Ville is just a codename that will change when the device is shown off at the Mobile World Congress in February next year. Hopefully it won’t be long before more details of the device become available along with details of the Edge. These handsets just add to the ever growing choice Android fans now have.
