Android-Based HTC Incredible S, Desire S, and Wildfire S All Get Announced

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

The last thing that HTC announced today are these three smartphones: the Incredible S (above), the Desire S (below), and the Wildfire S (very bottom). These three smartphones are all slightly better than their original models and they should all be available in Q2 of this year if things work out. Let's kick things off with the Incredible S, shall we?

This smartphone is the best of the bunch and features a 4-inch WVGA Super LCD display, a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, 1.1GB of ROM, a microSD card slot, 768MB of RAM, WiFi b/g/n / Bluetooth 2.1 support, an 8MP AF camera with a dual-LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a front-facing 1.3MP camera, aGPS, and sadly just Android 2.2 with the Sense UI. The buttons on this smartphone aren't labels (Engadget points out) so when you turn the phone the buttons will turn as well. That's pretty neat. This will be available sometime in the middle of Q2. Pretty good for their latest flagship but Samsung seems to be blowing them out of the water.

Next up from the company is the HTC Desire S. This one packs a similar spec sheet but features a smaller 3.7-inch S-LCD WVGA display, a lower 5MP AF camera with an LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, and runs Android 2.4 with the Sense UI. It's pretty similar to the original Desire so if you already have that then it might not be worth the upgrade. This will also be available in mid-Q2.

Last, and least out of the group, is the Wildfire S. This one features a 3.2-inch HVGA display (320 x 480 resolution), a 600MHz CPU, 512MB of ROM / RAM, a microSD card slot, WiFi b/g/n / Bluetooth 3.0 support, a 5MP AF camera with an LED flash, and Android 2.3 with the Sense UI. I don't really understand why they put Bluetooth 3.0 in this one and not the better smartphones but I guess that's really up to them. This one should be launching soon after the other two so maybe it'll make a June launch.
