HTC Desire S coming in at Php25,990

I’ve been told by one of the local HTC retailers that the HTC Desire S will be available in stores this Monday with an indicative SRP of about Php25,990. Not bad for an HTC Desire re-fresh.

If you are in a hurry to get first dibs on the unit, you can pre-order at Top Electronics (see posted below) and get it at only Php23,500 (see poster for details).


HTC Desire S specs:
3.7 inches S-LCD touchscreen @ 480 x 800 pixels
1GHz Scorpion processor (Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon)
Adreno 205 GPU
768MB RAM, 512 MB ROM
1.1GB internal storage
up to 32GB on microSD
HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, HSUPA 2 Mbps
Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
5MP autofocus camera w/ LED flash
720p video recording
Front-facing VGA camera
Stereo FM Radio w/ RDS
GPS with aGPS support
1450 Li-Ion battery
Android OS, v2.3 Gingerbread

The HTC Desire S is like a carbon-copy of the original Desire with a few minor improvements. It’s possible the original Desire is already at EOL (end-of-life) and the Desire S will eventually replace it inside store shelves.

    One month ago, I read that Nexus S is coming this month. I still can’t find a trace of Nexus S except for the gray market. I hope this really comes out soon.

      Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
      I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?

    How about the rest of the family (HTC Incredible S, and HTC Wildfire S?)

  6. Razorous says:

    Antayin ko nalang muna incredible S…

  7. I was told that the Incredible S will not be made available locally.

  8. d0t says:

    I’m also interested when the Wildfire S will come out locally. (Maybe that will force the price of the original Wildfire to come down :) )

    THIS! I am really thinking about buying the Desire HD .. Though that one has a better 8MP Camera and would have Gingerbread (I’ve heard). The Desire S’ design is better, and I think 5MP is fine, and a Gingerbread out of the box :)) Also, It’s newer :D And the price is not really far from Desire HD’s

  10. pogi says:

    i think Galaxy SL is better- with a larger screen, thinner body and lower price tag (only around 19k)

    but personally, i would want to wait for Arc, Optimus Black and more powerful dual-core phones to be released. diyan na mag-uumpia ang laban! yeah!

  11. It’s my first time to see and hear HTC. i’m sorry about that. http://learner-spot.blogspot.com/

    Ganda ng specs not bad for Php26K. Sana mas bumaba pa.

  13. Alps says:

    Let’s wait for HTC “Pyramid”!

  14. eLx says:

    I’ve been waiting for this phone ever since they released the update about this upgrade. But with the price tag, now I’m confused if I go for Samsung SL or other phones on the same price bracket. I’ve heard that HTC service is far better than Samsung?

  15. thepaper says:

    hmmm…. eto or lg optimus 2x?

  16. al says:

    For people who are into hacking and customizing their phones to the fullest, desire s has a locked bootloader no custom roms, bad!!

  17. Cxianok says:

    Wow tempting! but im also considering Samsung Galaxy S II, hintay hintay siguro muna ako :)

  18. RJ says:

    Still not convinced… i am still waiting for xperia arc..

  19. thejackal says:

    I’m gonna wait for EVO 3D. Sobrang dami ng developments recently sa mga smartphones. I think at some point they will be sacrificing battery life for performance na. And yeah.. 3D without glasses is awesome. :))

  22. desireboy says:

    Amoled over SLCD? I dont think so. I prefer AMOLED still. Gorilla Glass Display pa din ba to?

  23. Guys, I am actually accepting Pre-Orders for the HTC Incredible S. You should check out the Pre-Order form here – http://www.techdron.com/incredibles/

    pag sa quality mas maganda ang HTC kasi metal hindi katulad ng samsung na plastic aside from that hindi sila ganun kasipag mag-update. hindi katulad ng HTC na simula lumabas hanggang sa ma-phase out alaga nila. Desire will have an upgrade by this month or by May diba?

  25. tech84 says:
