The HTC One S, which was unveiled last month, is an addition to the suite of HTC One phones which comprises the HTC One X, HTC One XL, and HTC One V as well.
HTC One S features an innovative new finish, used for the first time ever in mobile phone design. It takes traditional anodisation to a new level, with a patented HTC process that creates a subtle and sophisticated light-to-dark gradient fade through the aluminium.
A Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with up to 1.7GHz dual-core CPUs powers an ultra-responsive interface with rich graphics that come to life on the 4.3 inch bright Super AMOLED screen. Crafted from contoured Corning™ Gorilla Glass, which flows over the edges of the phone, the durable screen has optical lamination offering wide viewing angles to make reviewing pictures and videos easy.
HTC One S blends Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with HTC Sense™ 4, the new version of HTC’s acclaimed user experience. HTC Sense 4 features new camera capabilities, enabling users to shoot outstanding pictures in the blink of an eye. Beats Audio™ technology is also integrated more deeply throughout all multimedia features of the phone, to deliver a more premium mobile experience.
With an f/2.0 lens and auto HDR mode, HTC ImageSense technology delivers fast image capture with stunning results, even under adverse lighting conditions. In just 0.7 seconds you’re able to take a shot and, with its new superfast 0.2 second autofocus, you’ll never miss a moment again. You can even take pictures as you shoot HD video, or extract high resolution stills from HD video in playback.
Beats By Dr. Dre Audio integration gives you a richer, more authentic sound whether you’re listening to your favourite music, watching a YouTube™ video or playing a game. HTC One S lets you customise the new Music Hub with your favourite services and music applications so there is only one place to go for all of your music.
HTC has also partnered with Dropbox to provide consumers with 25 gigabytes of free online space for two years - that’s enough to keep more than 10,000 high-quality photos - so it’s easy to edit, save and share your documents on the go.
HTC One S gives you a new way to share your photos and videos. When you plug HTC’s Media Link HD* accessory into your TV’s HDMI port, you can easily share your photos, videos, or anything else on your phone with your friends, family or colleagues regardless of the television’s brand.
With HTC One S, it’s now even easier to take your mobile music on the road. Simply connect the new HTC Stereo Clip* to your car’s sound system to stream more than 50 thousand online radio stations worldwide or to play music from any service or app on your phone through your car speakers.
The HTC One S handset is available in Gradient Metal. It is available at all authorised mobile operators and resellers.
