HTC One S first look at MWC 2012
I met with HTC at Mobile World Congress to see their latest devices. In this video, we take a look at the HTC One S.
HTC One S integrates Android 4.0 (ICS) with HTC Sense 4, the new version of HTC's branded user experience that is introducing HTC ImageSense, a new suite of camera and imaging features. HTC Sense 4 also includes broad enhancements to audio quality and simplifies how people listen to music on their phone.
The HTC One S is for people who want a high-end smartphone in a more compact size. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with up to 1.5GHz dual-core CPU's. It also includes a 4.3-inch screen with Corning Gorilla Glass. HTC One S has a metal unibody styling with a thin 7.9-mm design, making it HTC's thinnest phone yet.
The HTC One S sports two new finishes that break new ground in mobile phone innovation. The first is an ultra-matte black Ceramic Metal surface that is the result of a microarc oxidation (MAO) process originally developed for use in satellites. It transforms the surface of the aluminum unibody into a ceramic, super-dense crystalline structure that is four times harder than anodized aluminum, enabling the HTC One S to look great over time.
The second finish for the One S takes anodizing to a new level with a new patented process that creates a light-to-dark gradient fade.
The HTC One series will begin shipping in April with broad global availability available beginning in April through more than 140 mobile operators and distributors globally.
