It seems a long time ago since we first heard of the HTC Ville and learned that this would be a smartphone launched on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We have been expecting to hear much more about this handset at MWC taking place next week but for now we have some news on some HTC Ville benchmark tests that seem pretty impressive.
NenaMark 2 benchmark results have shown notable speeds of 60.60fps which should get many people’s mouths watering. The results were brought to our attention by TmoNews and showed a minimum score of 51.10, an average of 57.40 and a maximum of 60.60. As a brief reminder of specs the HTC Ville will sport a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display and 8-megapixel rear camera with video capture of 1080p. It will also have a 1650mAh battery, feature HTC Beats Audio and is touted as being super slim.
This smartphone looks to be heading to T-Mobile and we should point out that we recently informed readers that the HTC Ville could be seeing a name change to the HTC One S so quite how you will see this smartphone eventually appear seems in question at the moment. We should certainly be hearing more from Barcelona and hopefully will soon be able to give you all the rundown including price and a release date.
In the meantime you might want to take a look at the HTC Ville in the video below, which gives an idea of what to expect. With all the current fuss about quad-core smartphones, could you be tempted to a dual-core such as the HTC Ville, especially after seeing these benchmarks?
