HTC Sense is a custom user interface designed to run on HTC’s Android phones. The company is preparing a new version of Sense designed to work with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and it’s reportedly called HTC Sense 4.0.
Last week the folks at PocketNow described some of the new features we can expect to see in Sense 4.0, but at the time no pictures or videos were available. But now the folks at HTC Hub have gotten their hands on a pre-release version of the upcoming HTC Ville smartphone running Sense 4.0 — and they’ve posted the first video of the new user interface.
There are new animated transitions between screens and support for some Android 4.0 features including the new widget menu.
While Google designed Ice Cream Sandwich to work on devices like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus that don’t have dedicated buttons below the screen for home, back, menu, or recent apps functions, it looks like the Ville and HTC Sense 4.0 still use the same sort of capacitive touchscreen buttons found on older Android phones.
The HTC Ville smartphone is expected to have a 4.3 inch, qHD display and a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core processor.
