The HTC One S trio is finally arriving to China. And yet the guys over at Engadget China managed to do a hands-on treatment on the three devices. The devices are known by their names HTC One ST, One SU and One SC respectively. The three devices share many similarities, but still, there are some major differences between them. The HTC One ST is headed to China Mobile, while the One SU is for China Unicorn, whereas the One SC will arrive at China Telecom. All of them share the same specs, but differ in the design. Let’s start with the specs first.
The devices feature a 4,3 inch screen of WVGA resolution, 1GHz dual-core STE NovaThor U8500 chipset with Mali400 GPU, 1GB RAM, 4GB ROM memory and a microSD card slot for storage expansion, 5MP camera and a 1800 mAh battery. It’s also worth mentioning that they have the dual-SIM feature, which is popular among Chinese droids. The devices run on the same software, which is Android 4.0.4 with Sense 4.1 baked onto.
Design-wise, the devices differ significantly. They are based on the same template, but the final products variate quite a bit. One thing is for sure – all of them look great. We bet they feel even better in hand. All of them share the premium looks and feel of the high-end HTC One X.
The Chinese One S trio are sold for 2499 Yuan, which is equal to 309 Euros, or 396 Dollars. Assuming they are mid-range droids, we think the price is still too steep. But still, you get the dual-SIM feature and a dual-core processor, which is good even for today’s standards.
