MWC – HTC One S Up close

The HTC One S has a slightly smaller screen that the One X, measuring in at 4.3″ and has a lower resolution – 540×960. This is the “middle” handset out of the three. It’s “only” got a dual-core CPU too, but it’s still 1.5GHz. The other specs remain – you get that clever camera technology which lets you “snap as you’re filming”. This one is going to cost £450 unlocked from April 5th and again, there’ll be no shortage of networks taking it.

Beats Audio is on-board, as is Android 4.0 and HTC Sense 4.0. Here you’ll find 16GB of storage (no microSD slot) and a 1650mAh battery. It’s got the usual 3.5mm audio port, sensors, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and DLNA. Again, there’s the two cameras – the 8 megapixel one at the back with that smart LED flash that checks how far people are before adjusting the brightness and another 1.3 megapixel shooter up front. That “snap while shooting” technology is on board too.

It’s remarkably thin and again, there’s some lovely touches on this. It seemed to produce some very good images and we liked the new Bluetooth accessory HTC are promoting here. You basically plug it into a 3.5mm audio jack and then the phone beams out stereo Bluetooth to the device. With most car stereo units having a 3.5mm audio port, it’s going to be a great add-on.

25GB of Dropbox storage for 2 years is part of the package and below you can see a great hands-on of this phone, plus a gallery and the specs.
