India blessed with HTC One S June 15

During the last few months HTC has been busy launching its new range of One smartphones to various markets around the world, and today we have news that India is to be blessed with the HTC One S on June 15.

The smartphone manufacturer has revealed that it is going to launch the One S in the country on June 15th, but as IBN Live are reporting the device was originally thought to be coming to the country last week, but for some reason its availability slipped a little. Some online retailers such as Infibeam have begun to take pre-orders for the upcoming smartphone with prices starting as low as Rs 1,000, but the device is expected to be priced around Rs 33,000.

HTC’s new One S smartphone will come running the Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system straight out of the box, and be powered by a dual core Snapdragon S4 Krait processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. There is also an Adreno 225 graphics processing chip, and the smartphone features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that is protected by Gorilla Glass.

The handset is pretty sleek as well with the metal body measuring only 7.8mm thick, and it weighs only 119.5 grams. The handset comes packing an eight megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash, and around the front there is a VGA shooter for video calls.

Other features include 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of on board storage that can be expanded via the microSD card slot. The handset comes with Beats Audio technology along with Bluetooth, DLNA functionality, Wi-Fi, and 3G connectivity. There will be now Beats Audio headphones bundled with the handset though according to HTC.

    Is this a mistake or does the India One S actually have a SD slot while the NA on does not.  Or have I really missed something.  A SD slot on the One S would make it the perfect phone.

    There is no SD slot and the phone in India will not have the S4 Krait CPU either, but instead it will have the older S3 chip clocked at 1.7 GHz, which means it will be slower and consume more battery.
