HTC One S up for pre-order ahead of April 5 release

HTC's slim 'style' phone will make an appearance alongside the One X, with the budget One V handset hot on their heels

Fancy 7.6mm of sexy Ceramic Metal and 4.3in of AMOLED screenage with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and Beats Audio all under the hood? That’s the HTC One S we’re talking about – the super-thin Mobile World Congress 2012 smartphone that’s set to join the quad-core HTC One X with an April 5th release date.

O2 first let the early April release date slip but now both Amazon and (usual early bird) Clove have confirmed that they have the handsets up for pre-order, with the HTC One V bringing up the rear of the HTC onslaught on April 26th.

You can get the HTC One S in black for £440 while the One X comes in at £500 for grey and £490 for the white version.

And while the One V has lower specs, sporting a 5MP camera instead of an 8MP snapper, it also comes with a much more wallet friendly price of £250. Need a little help with your decision? Check out our HTC One X hands on and HTC One S hands on reviews.
