T-Mobile USA has confirmed that it will launch the HTC One S next week. America’s fourth-place carrier, in the midst of some brand reinvention, hopes that a $199 price tag and promise of 4G HSPA+ will make this an attractive phone to customers.
The One S goes sale April 25, and it will deliver plenty of features. The phone ships with HTC Sense 4 layered over Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, accesses T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 42 Mbps network, and Beats Audio integration for improved audio sound levels.
HTC is also sweetening the pot with a deal that gives users 25 GB of Dropbox storage. When activated through the phone, users will gain a cloud storage locker with 25 GB, integrated Android features, and the ability to easily save photos taken with the phone. That will come in handy considering that the One S has an 8 megapixel camera with HTC ImageSense technology.
“Blending the latest technology with HTC’s focus on consumer experience, the HTC One S allows people to capture amazing images as high-definition video and photos at the same time with merely a touch of their finger,” said Martin Fichter, vice president, product management, HTC Americas. “
The One S will go on sale next Wednesday, April 25, 2012. Here are the specs in case you need help deciding if you’ll be picking one up.
