HTC Launches Another One, Plus Two Desires

Last Thursday, HTC Philippines hosted a launch event to introduce the latest additions to its Android smartphone roster. A total of three new devices were unveiled, headlined by the HTC One S.

Rounding out the HTC One family of smartphones, the One S is an exceptional performer with matching good looks that retails at PhP 26,990.

Belonging in the middle of the pack of HTC's flagship One series, the HTC One S boasts of an elegant, 7.9mm-slim unibody design that houses exceptional performance courtesy of its 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor. The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich experience that it offers is enhanced by way of HTC Sense 4, made all the more easy to enjoy on a 4.3-inch (540 x 960) Super AMOLED, Gorilla Glass-reinforced display.

True to the "Amazing Camera, Authentic Sound" design philosophy of the HTC One brand, the One S combines high-quality integrated imaging features and the latest Beats Audio technology to deliver an exciting one-two punch of multimedia enjoyment for the modern mobile user. For its camera, the HTC One S has an 8-megapixel sensor and f/2.0 optics assisted by HTC ImageSense technology.


Offering great bang for the buck, the new HTC Desire C and Desire V deliver the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich experience enhanced with HTC Sense 4 at wallet-friendly prices of PhP 10,990 and PhP 16,990, respectively. In addition, the HTC Desire V supports dual-SIM functionality.

Meanwhile, it appears that HTC isn't done yet with its other product lines. The Desire family of Android smartphones has received a revival courtesy of two new handsets which also run on Android 4.0 ICS with HTC Sense 4. First, the HTC Desire V is the company's first dual-SIM smartphone. Coming with a 4-inch, 480 x 800-pixel screen and a 1GHz Cortex-A5 single core CPU, the Desire V is HTC's most affordable 4-inch smartphone to date.

The HTC Desire C represents the company's most budget-friendly offering so far this year, but it still offers features and a user experience that should satisfy today's mobile demands. With a 600MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, this 3.5-incher is a handy entry-level device for first-time smartphone users.
