    T-Mobile Brings HTC One S to the U.S.

    T-Mobile’s Thinnest Smartphone Delivers an Amazing Camera, HD Video Capture and Beats Audio Integration, All Running on America’s Largest 4G Network®
    BELLEVUE, Wash. — Feb. 26, 2012 — Today at Mobile World Congress 2012, HTC announced the upcoming availability of the HTC One S, with T-Mobile® as the premier launch partner in the U.S. Expected this spring, the HTC One S is T-Mobile’s thinnest smartphone (7.95mm), featuring an ultra-sleek, aluminum unibody design. The next smartphone to take advantage of 4G technology (HSPA+42) running on America’s Largest 4G Network, the HTC One S is T-Mobile’s first product to ship with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and HTC Sense 4.
    With access to T-Mobile’s fastest network speeds, the HTC One S allows for a high-quality entertainment experience, which is also enhanced by Beats By Dr. Dre technology. 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.
    We’re thrilled to partner with HTC on the launch of its new HTC One series of smartphones and to bring the HTC One S to the U.S.,” said Andrew Sherrard, senior vice president, marketing, T-Mobile USA. “With the HTC One S, we’re not only delivering on our promise to bring leading-edge technology to market but are continuing to provide customers with the best 4G entertainment experiences from listening to high-quality music to streaming high-resolution movies.”
    Consumers increasingly expect smartphone camera technology that offers the ability to capture life’s moments with high-quality photos and videos – and the HTC One S delivers. Joining
    T-Mobile’s best-in-class lineup of advanced camera smartphones from HTC, the arrival of the 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.
    “People take photos on their phone more than any activity other than making phone calls, which is why we improved every part of the camera experience on HTC One S,” said Jason Mackenzie, president, global sales and marketing, HTC Corporation. “We’re thrilled to bring our combination of our premium design, amazing camera and authentic sound to T-Mobile customers in the U.S.”
    The HTC One S will be one of the fastest smartphones running on America’s Largest 4G Network, with access to T-Mobile’s fastest 4G (HSPA+ 42) speeds, currently available in 175 markets, reaching more than 180 million Americans. 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.

    I definitely think this is much better than the HTC One X which is an AT&T exclusive.

    It's a cool phone, but I think the Sensation was thin enough. I'd rather have it be Sensation size but have a larger battery.

    Other than being thin, how different is this than the amaze 4g (which will get ics eventually). A quick look doesn't show enough reason to switch from an amaze 4g.

    The One X has a quad core Tegra3. How is this better? It's an upgraded Amaze.

    says dual core 1.5Ghz. Snapdragon s4.
    The amaze may be the previous snapdragon but it is still 1.5Ghz dual core.

    Looks very nice for Android. Great thin design. Hope this does HSPA + 1900 MHz as well for better coverage expected later this year.

    I see you are still falling for the Ghz fallacy. We're at a point where it doesn't make sense to compare processors by their frequencies. You need to look at the architecture used.

    Here's why the Snapdragon S4 is good: http://www.anandtech.com/show/5559/q...225-benchmarks

    My point i trying to make was if this new phone was worth upgrading from the amaze 4g. Not that it is not better.

    I'm not excited about this phone at all. It's a small upgrade from the Amaze.

    Looks like a pretty awesome phone. I may have to utilize that upgrade.

    To heck with flowers and candy, leave the jewelry at the store, but when it comes to cell phones, I always want one more.

    Isn't G4x first quad-core phone from T-Mobile (is it why called G4 not G3?)?

    QUOTE] Actually you need to look at the software and if it is optimized for the extra cores. Real world vs benchmark tests.

    The HTC One X going to AT&T will have AWS band per HTC website. The overseas version has Tegra Quad core where as the AT&T version appears to have the Snapdragon dual core like the Htc One S.
