The carrier has yet to announce more details on pricing and availability
HTC One S has already been confirmed in Canada from multiple carriers, including Bell, TELUS, Fido and Virgin Mobile.However, it looks like the folks over at MobileSyrup have just learned that the smartphone will also hit shelves at regional operator SaskTel.
Apparently, there’s a specs sheet of the HTC One S with the carrier’s logo attached to it, buried deep within the HTC Canada official site.
For the time being, there are no additional details on the smartphone’s pricing options and availability, but there’s a high chance that SaskTel will be released around the same timeframe as the ones coming from other Canadian carriers.
Although the HTC One S is equipped with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8260A Snapdragon processor, this is not the most powerful smartphone in the HTC One family.
The Taiwanese company’s new Android flagship smartphone is the HTC One X, which is powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz.
Aside from that, HTC One S features a slightly smaller 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports 540 x 960 pixels resolution, and it sports Corning Gorilla Glass coating.
In comparison, the One X has a much bigger 4.7-inch Super IPS LCD2 capacitive touchscreen with HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution.
However, both devices pack an impressive 8-megapixel rear camera with HTC’s latest ImageSense technology that seems to give its new cameras a big boost over competition.
The main camera features autofocus, LED flash, simultaneous HD video and image recording, as well as full HD (1080p) video capture.
The One S offers users 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, along with 50GB of free cloud storage. Given the fact that the smartphone lacks a microSD card slot for memory expansion, the free cloud storage is more than welcomed.
Software-wise, HTC One S runs Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system integrated with HTC Sense user interface.
