Another addition to it’s One series, HTC announced the One S today at MWC Barcelona. While it looks like a smaller version of the power-packed HTC One X, nd comes with relatively more modest specs, it holds it’s own as far as capabilities and features are concerned. It is powered by a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm MSM8260A Snapdragon dual-core chipset (probably the same one that might be used in the AT&T version of the One X) , 1 GB RAM, and a brilliant 4.3″ Super AMOLED display.
It also features Beats audio, and the same camera hardware, 8 MP Main & 1.3 MP FFC as it’s big brother – the One X. And of course, it will ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC Sense 4.0. Like the One X, the One S will also feature the special Image chip which allows for taking better photos. While it will be launched globally, the One S is expected to also hit the US Markets via T-Mobile soon.
