HTC Ville, Samsung Blaze 4G and mysterious Huawei Prism show up on T-Mobile’s accessory list


We know pretty much everything there is to know about the specs of the HTC Ville (aka HTC One S) at this point, but our friends over at TmoNews have just secured the first bit of real evidence to support the rumor that HTC’s first Android 4.0 phone powered by a Snapdragon S4 chip will be heading to T-Mobile stores in the US. An image of the latest T-Mobile accessory sheet lists six accessories for the HTC Ville, including a PowerSkin case, screen protector, leather sleeve, HDMI cable and a Bluetooth speaker dock from HTC.

Joining the HTC Ville on the accessory list is the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G and the Huawei Prism. You’ll have to forgive us for not being too excited for these other two devices. Until today, the Huawei Prism name was unknown and the Blaze 4G is simply another incarnation of the Samsung Galaxy S which will probably launch with Android 2.3 and a low-resolution display. Based on what we saw at CES, the Huawei Prism could turn out to be a variant of the Huawei Ascend P1 or the Ascend P1 S, but there is currently no evidence to back up that claim.

We only have a few days before HTC, Samsung, and Huawei take to the stage at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to announce their new lineup for the year. Personally, I have my sights set on the HTC Ville. What new phone unveiling are you looking forward to this weekend?

    HTC One S should be pretty nice on T-Mobile. But Snapdragon S4 has integrated LTE modem, which doesn’t make sense for T-Mobile USA. Maybe it will just be disabled and they will use HSPA+ instead?

      If I remember correctly, the chip also had integrated cdma which I don’t think Tmobile had any use for.

    • Jeff Pan

      Or is there a Ville and a One-S ?

  • MrMrMan

    LAAAAAAMMMEEE! T-Mobile is truly sucking something serious. Their current and future lineups are terrible. No wonder they’re in 4th place with no hope of ever climbing. The second Sprint gets the Galaxy Nexus I’m jumping ship.

    • CTown

      I know, the One S could have been perfect with a 720p (they’re all the rage) plus NFC. A Snapdragon S4 could easily power those parts!

      • Moosa Mahsoom

        The thing about no nfc was a deduction based on the metal construction.

    • nathan118

      Wait until we find out what the T999 is…mark my words it’s the galaxy nexus.

  • kwills88

    I hate that majority of t-mobile phones are meh worthy, I love t-mobile, but we in desperate need of better phones.

    • WlfHart

      Agreed… would love a Galaxy Note II to be announced on T-Mobile right about now…

  • spazby

    Not impressive at all

  • Richard Yarrell

    People that are on tmo are doing just fine. Many more devices will hit within the next 4months.

  • DROID Sam

    Really excited for the Ville/One S on Tmobile. You guys need to get over yourselves. Are you seriously trashing this phone simply because it doesn’t have a 720p display and no NFC? Seriously?

    At least its better than the Incredible 3 that’s rumored to be going to Verizon, but that phone will probably get endless praise from VZW fans. Just watch.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    I knew the Ville would end up at T-Mobile. always getting the lower end of the Juggernaut releases.

  • jimmyB

    Score! Hope T-mobile sells the One S for $199 instead of the $249 price they have been slapping on their flagship devices lately. That S4 chip is going to be kick! Quick note to anyone hoping for a 720p display… Android isn’t quite ready for it yet. Sure, Android 4.0 was built for HD displays, but 99.9% of all apps on the market currently looks like crap since they are designed for lower resolution devices. It’ll change over time, but it’s going to be a good year before most apps are updated for HD resolution.

  • Nathan D.

    Finally a good device is coming to tmo, but in all honesty it should have better specs screen wise then I wouldn’t care to get it.

  • McLovin

    What’s a worthy successor to the G-2 going to be in Oct? HTC, T-Mobile, QWERTY keyboard, external memory card slot, front/back camera, Jelly Bean, NFC, user replaceable battery, HSPA+42, quad-core.

  • VS

    I’ll stick with the S3 Amaze for now. I’ll probably skip a generation or two of Snapdragons and see how NVIDA performs in the market. I’m curious how 28nm dual core architecture vs quad core will play out.

    Until then, I can hope that Beats Audio and a potential PlayStation Certification comes to legacy HTC phones…maybe ICS too =D.
