HTC didn’t really have a strong Android presence at this year’s CES, but perhaps they are saving their high-end hardware for Mobile World Congress 2012 or their own dedicated events. Either way, we’re getting an early look at HTC’s upcoming flagship smartphone — one that is expected to drop on T-Mobile. With AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint doing big things with their respective networks and securing handsets, we’re expecting T-Mobile to have a few future announcements up its sleeves to stay ahead of the competition. This new HTC handset — the HTC Ville — will certainly help T-Mobile gain subscribers. According to preliminary details coming from PocketNow, the HTC Ville rocks a 4.3 inch qHD display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.0, and a strong 8MP camera. We expect the Ville to launch later this Spring with an official announcement hopefully coming during MWC in February. The HTC Ville will join the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G atop T-Mobile’s high-end Android smartphone list.
