HTC announced the One S 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 crafted from contoured Corning Gorilla Glass. HTC One S brings HTC's innovative metal unibody styling to a new thin 7.9mm 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 that looks gorgeous and sophisticated.

The HTC One S will run with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and HTC Sense 4 and take advantage of 4G technology (HSPA+42). Additional features include an 8MP digital camera, HD Video capture and Beats Audio.

The Beats Audio integration in the HTC One S is enabled for richer, more authentic sound when consumers listen to music. The HTC One S also makes it simple to get and listen to music, with Google Music pre-loaded on the device for easy cloud-based access to the user's personal music collection.

HTC One S marks the introduction of HTC's new amazing camera experience that rivals traditional digital cameras. With the introduction of HTC ImageSense, improvements are brought to every part of the 8-megapixel camera, including lens, the sensor and the software. Camera enhancements include:

  • Superfast Capture — The HTC One S dramatically reduces the time it takes to capture those key moments, with an estimated 0.7-second shot time and a 0.2-second autofocus that allows for nearly unlimited continuous shots.
  • High Quality Photos in Adverse Conditions — The HTC One S delivers dramatic enhancements in image capture quality even in adverse lighting conditions. The f/2.0 lens on the HTC One S offers amazing low-light performance, capturing 40 percent more light than the f/2.4 lenses available on other high-end phones.
  • Concurrent Video/Still Capture — HTC One S lets the user capture a shot and shoot video at the same time — perfect for capturing life's moments as they happen. While shooting 1080p HD video, consumers just need to tap the shutter button and the device snaps a high-resolution still photo while the video continues to shoot. Consumers can also capture a still from a previously recorded video.

Equipped with a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor by Qualcomm, the HTC One S delivers powerful performance while Web browsing, streaming movies and watching TV shows on the device's 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED touch screen.

Price and Availability
The HTC One S is expected to be available this spring 2012 from T-Mobile USA, pricing TBD.
