SIM free HTC One S priced in the UK
Expansys UK is currently listing the HTC One S in two color versions (gradient metal, and ceramic metal), asking £414.99 (about €498 or $655) for it – £85 less than what you have to pay for the quad-core One X.
Unfortunately for interested customers, the British retailer can’t say exactly when the One S will become available. It should happen sometime in the second quarter of the year anyway, hence in June the latest.
The One S measures 130.9 x 65 x 7.8 mm, being HTC’s thinnest smartphone ever. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and features Sense 4 UI, a 4.3 inch qHD (960 x 540) Super AMOLED display, HSPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, Beats Audio technology, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, 1,650 mAh battery, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and simultaneous HD video (1080p) and image recording.
If you don’t want to get the HTC One S SIM-free, you should know that Orange UK will also offer the handset, alongside the One X.
