The One S and the unproven One V. The One V showed its jawed build off to the world, without being operational. The One S however was fully functional during the show and will soon be on its way to steal the hearts and minds of smart phone shoppers the world over. Lets take a gander at the other One series device from HTC, shall we?
The HTC One S arrives on the scene in the shadows of its big brother the One X. While it may not be the power house the X is, the One S can surely hold its own! Offering up some excellent specs, does the One S bring raise mid range bar? This time last year the One S would be considered a high end smart phone, however the One S is being considered as one of HTC’s new mid-range selections and we can all rest assured the mid range has just gotten a huge spec bump! The One S shares the same build as the One X, while it may be slightly different in its overall design the One S uses a uni-body design that is fabricated out of a combination of ceramics and scratch resistant aluminum. The beautiful and seemingly well manufactured housing packs in all you’ll need to stay connected and then some. It is built around a 4.3 inch qHD Super AMOLED touch screen that will provide you with a 540×960 pixel resolution at 256 pixels per inch. Computation comes from a 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Making it all come together in phone form is the very latest and greatest in Android version 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich. On top of Android you will find what some call the best OEM UI skin evar in HTC’s Sense 4.0. The One S also comes packing HTC’s latest camera update with their ImageChip technologies. The One S houses an 8 mega pixel rear camera with an additional 1.3 mega pixel snapper up front. The main camera can record video in full 1080p HD and also perform some new tricks thanks to its new sensor. With HTC’s camera advancements the One S will allow you to snap pictures in .7 seconds and catch that elusive autofocus in only .2 seconds. Additionally you can snap continuous pictures by simply holding the shutter button. When in record mode you’ll also be able to snap stills from your video when recording is in progress.
