HTC announced three new smartphones Sunday at Mobile World Congress that take advantage of the HTC One branding. One of the devices is called the HTC One S. It’ll be available exclusively on T-Mobile in the spring, but there’s a chance it’ll pop up on other carriers in due time. The HTC One S is not the high-end smartphone you may have been hoping for. It doesn’t have a quad-core processor or a 720p HD display. However, its specs should be more than capable of delivering a pleasant experience.
Here’s a quick rundown of the phone’s guts.
- 4.3 qHD Super AMOLED Plus display
- 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4
- Android 4.0
- Sense 4
- 7.95 millimeters thick
- 8 megapixel rear camera
- Integrated Beats audio
One of the standout features of the HTC One S is its improved camera and software. It has a f/2.0 lens which HTC says helps capture better photographs in low light. Pictures can also be taken at a speed of 0.2 seconds. The camera software also lets users take high resolution photos while recording a 1080p video.
T-Mobile users can also get network speeds up to 42Mbps with this phone.
Pricing information hasn’t been discussed, but hopefully it won’t go for above $199.
