With Mobile World Congress (MWC) set to take place in four weeks' time, it's probably about time that we came across a juicy new smartphone leak online. How about the new HTC Ville?

A sneaky YouTuber has gotten his hands on a working prototype of the soon-to-be announced HTC Ville running Ice Cream Sandwich and the next version of the HTC Sense user interface (UI).

In the video you can see a subtly redesigned Sense UI clock/weather widget, slick-looking new live wallpapers in the background, and the handset's hardware details in the phone's system menu including a dual-core 1.5GHz processor.

You also get a good look at the handset's physical design, which appears slimmer than other recent HTC phones, and with the same rounded edges we saw recently on the Samsung/Google Galaxy Nexus.

The Ville is rumoured to be the little brother of HTC's MWC announcements in 2012, with the quad-core HTC Endeavour rumoured to steal the limelight. Mobile World Congress kicks off on 27 February in Barcelona.
