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.

  • Android 4.0  Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC Sense 4.0
  • 4.3″ SuperAMOLED display – 540 x 960
  • Qualcomm MSM8260A Snapdragon dual-core chip/  1.5 GHz Krait

  • Dual Camera -8 MP Main with AutoFocus and LEDFlash ; 1.3 MP FFC; 1080p video recording
  • 16 GB internal storage
  • WiFi, HSDPA, DLNA,
  • 7.8 mm thickness (impressive again,  for such a feature packed phone)
  • 1650 mAh battery (again, we wonder why HTC does not include higher capacity batteries with a power device)

HTC sure seems to be hitting the sweet spot with it’s One series. We’ll just have to wait and watch, and let the sales numbers do the talking.
