When we were first hearing of the prototypes and codenames that would eventually be the HTC One phones, the HTC Ville ended up being the One S. The One S ended up being the mid-range phone of the One series as compared to the One X and One V, but it looks like HTC has another phone up their sleeve with the leak of the Ville C’s specs.
Billed as “a cheaper One S” this phone has some specs that would seem to contradict that. Sense 4.5 is apparently already in the works and billed for this phone, rocking a 4.3″AMOLED screen with qHD resolution. 1GB of RAM and a Snapdragon S3 processor that say is clocked at 1.7GHz, but we’re hearing it’s supposed to be 1.2 and that is a typo. It has Android 4.0 already on-board and a 8MP camera that can shoot 1080p video. A lot of power for a “cheaper One S” so we’ll have to see what this phone is all about. We’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
