2012 HTC Ville: First rumored picture and release date update

For some reason, it only seems to be HTC smartphones that are stepping up to the plate in 2012 that we’ve heard about so far. Previously we’ve seen rumored information for the HTC Edge and HTC Zeta, but now it looks like we have the very first image of the upcoming HTC Ville.

HTC are busy focusing their efforts on the now-released HTC Rezound on Verizon of course, but for those of you are a fan of HTC generally and opted to bide your time, it looks like you are going to be rewarded with a whole plethora of new HTC handset excitement for you to contend with.

We initially told you about the rumored HTC Ville here, but now we have the first image and some additional details to share with you. Unlike the rumored HTC Edge and Zeta, the Ville won’t be a Tegra 3 quad-core device, but it will be a Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phone. One of its biggest features is its dimensions, as information uncovered at Pocketnow reveals that the Ville will come in at just 8mm thick, making it HTC’s thinnest smartphone ever if true.

Other specs if you haven’t heard of this device before include a 4.3-inch qHD display, a dual-core 1.5Ghz Snapdragon processor, an 8 megapixel camera and support for 1080p HD video recording. We’re also hearing that this device will be packaged with the latest version of HTC Sense UI and it will be another Beats audio device following on from the Rezound.

As for a release, we could be seeing a global announcement at the 2011 Mobile World Congress in February with a release date planned sometime in April according to Pocketnow. You can check out the first image of the handset here – take a look and tell us your initial thoughts on the Ville. Is it worth saving your cash for this, or would you prefer to pick up a quad-core smartphone?
