A cheaper version of the HTC One S, the HTC Ville C, will reportedly come with most of the features found on the more expensive HTC device although it will come with a slower processor.

Reports about the upcoming HTC Ville C emerged following the announcement of the HTC Desire C in the UK market. The cheaper device will feature a 4.3-inch display screen, 16GB storage, 1GB RAM and an 8MP camera. However it will not feature the 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor of the HTC One S, instead the upcoming HTC Ville C will have the 1,2GHz Snapdragon S3 processor from Qualcomm.

The upcoming HTC Ville C will feature the Android 4.0 OS together with the HTC Sense 4.5 custom user interface. In contrast, HTC introduced the HTC Sense 4.0 custom UI when the One series was announced last February.

The features on the upcoming HTC Ville C brings to mind the decision of HTC in releasing a number of handsets that have a similar design last year.

Some observers have indicated that it may work to the advantage of HTC to have a number of different designs for its handsets but it may become a disadvantage if it has more designs that the consumer market can handle. By adding a suffix to the name of the device may not be enough for consumers to distinguish one device from another.

It is also important to take into consideration that the 4G LTE devices are quite different compared to the GSM models of the devices. The introduction of the HTC Ville C also does not make it easier for a company that is supposedly trying to make cut backs for this year.

In the end the consumer market will decide whether the move to introduce the upcoming HTC Ville C will be beneficial for the company or not.
