And Another One with the HTC One S
The new HTC One series line up of phone is not limited to the highest end quad core machines. Their new series of devices include the excellence HTC has just announced including their new camera ImageChip technologies and Sense 4.0. The One V and One S are kin to the X super phone and bring home the goods in a lively fashion. While the One V was in attendance, it was quietly sitting out when it brothers were showing off. If the One X is a home run the One S is surely a triple that is rounding third and headed home to T-Mobile.
The new One series of devices seemingly take a page out of the almost perfect Sensation 4G design and that is surely a better bet than using say…the Thunderbolt cues. The HTC One S sports a uni-body design that is fabricated from high grade aluminum and touched up with a scratch resistant ceramic finish. With a build like that and with HTC’s recent history you may not expect epic thinness, but the One S measures in at a super thin 7.9mm. Amazingly enough, HTC packed in an amazing amount of greatness into this ultra slim housing. The touch screen measures in the sweet spot at 4.3 inches. It’s made with Super AMOLED technologies and provides a 540×960 pixel resolution with 256 ppi. The One S gets the best in Android and HTC Sense with a combination of 4’s. It uses the latest in Android version 4.0 also known as Ice Cream Sandwich. Of course over the top of Android is possibly the best OEM skin, HTC Sense 4.0. Internally you’ll need some pretty powerful processing to handle all this excellence. Luckily the HTC One S uses a dual core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 processor and is backed by 1 GB of RAM and up to 16 GB of internal storage. Unfortunately the One S just like all the One series devices, there is no expandable microSD memory capabilities. Around back the One S uses HTC’s latest camera technologies with ImageChip. The main shooter measures in at 8 mega pixels with an f/2.0 aperture and LED flash. This same camera can shoot video in full 1080p HD and allow you to snap stills when recording. Up front a 1.3 mega pixel camera rounds out the photography. This excellent new device is slated to be released to T-mobile’s retail shelves in the near future, but the carrier points out that their version of the device’s software and hardware has not been finalized. Let’s hope it’s not too far off.
