The HTC phones that were being held in customs have been released, which means that the HTC EVO 4G LTE is on its way to stores. If you pre-ordered the device, you likely have it in your hands by now. For the rest of us, we can expect to find the device at our local Sprint outlets on June 2nd. Just remember, Sprint's LTE network is non-existant, but should start its rollout shortly. Anyone planning to pick this one up?
AT&T will finally be graced with a phone featuring Beats Audio by Dr. Dre. The HTC One X is set to hit store selves within a few months. The phone features a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED 720p high definition display, alongside an 8-megapixel camera and running HTC’s Sense 4 running atop Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The superphone is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor. The only downside to the AT&T version of the smartphone is that it is a dual-core processor rather than a quad-core. United States buyer will be losing two cores to accommodate for a 4G LTE radio. But hey, we’re not complaining. For those in want of the quad-core model, you can always import one from Europe, we guess.
The HTC One S, looks just like any other average phone on the market at first glance. It doesn’t feature the screen real estate that would make your plasma blush, or screaming specs to that blow your computer outta the water. Instead, what HTC has accomplished is that they've created a phone that meets anyone’s mobile needs. The phone features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a new 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 (MSM8260A.) The HTC One S will be running Ice Cream Sandwich paired with the newest version of Sense UI, making it one of the still few smartphones to run Android 4.0. Alongside the new processor, HTC has also beefed up its camera and software; the phone sports an 8 megapixel f/2.0 autofocus lens and HTC’s ImageChip. With the new improvements you’ll be able to shoot your videos in 1080p and simultaneously take snap shots. Lastly, and this is a cool one, the body is actually made by a plasma-heated micro arc oxidation process that results in a unidoby aluminum frame with a nice ceramic finish and helps this phone achieve its 7.9mm thinness. Throw in Beats Audio, and you've got hat amounts to a very capable smartphones in the One S. Expect this one to hit T-Mobile soon.
Check out a video that HTC put together of the One S after the break.
Bluetrek’s Sense Bluetooth V1.2 headset has replaced the need for buttons with a touch-sensitive capability. The earphone also features an LED battery level indicator, and a voice alert to confirm your function choice, missed calls and low battery.
