If you remember it, the HTC One S was launched alongside the HTC One X. This is said to be HTC’s mid-range device. It comes packed with a Snapdragon S4 dual-core chipset. Yes, it was launched and was plagued with complaints. Now, this did not go well with the release of the handset and overall this specific device wasn’t quite the success that HTC expected. HTC tried its best to sell this with an inferior Snapdragon S3 chipset in some Asian countries (unfortunately, this didn’t go that well either). But the thing is, one simply cannot deny the fact that it is a great handset (in terms of hardware and design). Now, HTC launched a new 64GB variant of the HTC One S in Taiwan.
In addition, the HTC One S now comes in a sparkly white variant. This is also said to run on the latest Android Flavour out of the box and is accompanied by the HTC Sense 4+ UI. This is priced at 17,900 Taiwanese Dollars or $614.92 USD. Unfortunately, there is no wider release for this device and it seems more of an Asian exclusive release (or perhaps in Taiwan only). Asia smartphone users has a reason to be happy about it as this new upgraded Android device could make its way to their respective countries.
It is said that the phone’s specs are unchanged from the original HTC One S variant. On that note, the HTC One S packs a 4.3” qHD display accompanied by a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and it clocks in at 1.5GHz. It is also packed with an 8MP rear-facing shutter and a VGA front-facing shutter. It is also said to pack in 1GB worth of RAM.
From the looks of it, HTC wants to revamp its entire lineup with fancy specs. Yes, there are no new smartphones coming in with the exception of the new HTC J Butterfly and its US variant for Verizon the HTC Droid DNA.
