HTC One S coming to the Philippines soon!
When the HTC One X and the HTC One V was released in the Philippines several weeks ago, the mid-range HTC One S was conspicuously missing in the line-up. HTC Philippines did not give any reason for this absence but reports of a flaky casing is the most likely culprit.
Once that issue has been addressed, I’m sure HTC will eventually release the handset in the Philippines.
Fortunately, a recent conversation with a local rep of HTC has confirmed that they will launch the HTC One S in the Philippines soon. No exact date was given but we’re gunning for a June release on the One S.
HTC One S specs:
4.3â€³ Super AMOLED display @ 540Ã—960 pixels, 256ppi
Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait
Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon
16GB internal storage
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
8MP autofocus rear camera, 1080p
1.3MP front-facing camera, 720p
GPS w/ aGPS support
1650mAh Li-Polymer battery
Android 4.0 ICS
The HTC One S looks to be the successor to the HTC Sensation and the specs and form factor certainly reflects that.
Our previous report pegs the HTC One S with a price tag of Php30k. Considering that the HTC One X retailed for Php32,990, we believe the HTC One S will be priced much lower than that (we expect a Php27k to Php29k price tag).
