HTC took to the stage during Mobile World Congress and unveiled the One S, one of its latest Android smartphones. Our very own Noah Kravitz has already spent time with the One S ahead of the show. Noah found that the phone was cool to the touch, thanks to its MAO aluminum coating, but that it actually also has a soft touch feel. HTC explained that the MAO aluminum was coated with plasma and then heated, which gives the phone a very durable and scratch-resistant surface.
The One S is super thin (just 7.9mm thick) and light with a beautiful 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, 1GB of RAM, 25GB of Dropbox storage over the next two years, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 16GB of onboard storage, an 8-megapixel camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and Beats Audio support.
The One S should be available within 60 days and will launch in charcoal grey with a blue accent on the camera ring and all black, with a red accent on the camera. It’s unknown exactly who will carry the One S, or when, but we can’t wait to spend more time with this device.
