Ville was HTC's internal codename for the One S, now gracing Europe and T-Mobile with its presence. Now a new Ville has popped up in a spec sheet spotted by Brief Mobile. The list details a phone that's nearly identical to the One S (at least internally) with one crucial difference: it's running a Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor instead of an S4.

HTC One S, and even takes some direct shots at AT&T and the iPhone.
HTC EVO V 4G on Virgin Mobile here in the states, Japanese carrier KDDI will be launching the HTC J this summer. So much for that "hero device strategy", eh HTC?
HTC One S. A quick look at the free ROM hosting site Goo.IM shows that noted developer Jacob "ProTekk" Bell has a version of Android Open Kang Project (AOKP) Milestone 5 ready and waiting for the "ville", or One S. He showed off the build on his Twitter account yesterday, but offered no download or instruction.
previously been indicated on this site (often and with enthusiasm), kickstands are officially awesome. If I could add one to every device with a screen bigger than three inches across I would, and if you've got a shiny new HTC One S, you'll soon be able to. And the best part is that this isn't a cheap case from some no-name Chinese OEM - these are some quality cases, right from HTC themselves.
HTC One V is now selling on Canadian carrier Bell, free on a three year contract or $299.95 with no commitment. Even more exciting, a leaked Bell document indicates that the HTC One S will be sitting pretty on Canadian airwaves on May 17th. On-contract pricing isn't mentioned, but the One S may cost $599.95 outright.
HTC One S and you're loving it right? Then AT&T's One X will arrive in a few days and the next step for any die hard Android fan would be to unlock the bootloader, root the phone and get ready for some awesome developer ROM's to arrive. Just like most of HTC's current phones you can easily and safely unlock the bootloader with HTC's developer site.
HTC One X for AT&T is a different beast from the original (international) release in two rather important ways. First it's got a completely different processor, made by Qualcomm instead of NVIDIA, and second here it's carried by AT&T on a 2-year contract in the USA. Will this non-international release stir up the same positive reactions we had to the first release of this super hero phone, or are the two changes we're seeing here in software and hardware going to push this device in the wrong direction entirely?
HTC One S for T-Mobile, congratulations - you've got one of the best Android phones available in the US at the moment. But as is usually the case with high-profile phone releases, there's at least one fly in the ointment. T-Mobile's unique WiFi calling service is included on their version of the One S to save picky customers from using up their calling minutes. But it looks like this feature is draining the battery unusually fast, and at least some T-Mobile customers must have already complained.
HTC One S is a hot phone, but for those rocking the HTC EVO 3D you can now get a stable version of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and the latest Sense UI 4.0 along with Beats audio integration for your 3D. This was first released back in March as a alpha build and wasn't very stable, but today its earned new life and is coming along great.
