Mobile World Congress newsflash.
Hot off the press from Mobile World Congress, Three has announced that it will be ranging three new smartphones from HTC – The HTC OneX, the HTC OneS and the HTC OneV.
The HTC OneX is the ultimate lifestyle smartphone packed full of high-end features designed to make the most of every moment. Its cutting edge 4.7” Pureview display (HD 720p) creates vibrant, razor sharp visuals that bring images to life through its tough Gorilla Glass LCD screen. It’s speedy too with a 1.5GHz quadcore processor so quickly switching between apps and exploring the mobile internet has never been easier.
Hi-Fi sounds with Beats AudioTM give a studio-quality sound experience, just the way the artist intended and gamers can choose from an impressive selection of console quality touch-based or controller games with OnLive. Capturing those ‘must share’ moments is simple with the HTC OneX as there’s an eight megapixel camera and HD video along with plenty of memory thanks to 25GB of cloud storage from Dropbox.
Three will also be ranging the beautifully crafted and ultra slim HTC OneS, HTC’s thinnest handset that sets a new standard in smartphone design. There’s far more to it than good looks; with HTC ImageSense taking amazing pictures is easy in any light and users can even snap a picture while shooting HD video. Beats Audio for authentic studio sound provides an enhanced experience when listening to YouTube, Netflix, downloaded music or a movie. There’s plenty of space for storing files, music and photos on the go with 25GB of free Cloud storage with Dropbox. HTC Media Link HD connects the phone to the TV so users can take a call or read emails at the same time.
And finally there’s the great value HTC Onev , a smartphone packed full of the latest technology at an affordable price. It features a five megapixel camera with autofocus and LED Flash which creates stunning images, even in low light and there’s a HD video recorder for capturing those special moments on film. Exploring the internet on the move is a breeze as the HTC One v has a 1GHz dual-core processor that makes browsing and switching between applications smooth and seamless. Its 3.7” WVGA display gives the user a fantastic viewing experience and with Beats Audio technology they’ll also enjoy first class sound. All of these features are packed into a stylish, iconic design which is less than 9mm thin so it looks great too.
Speaking from Barcelona, Sylvia Chind, head of handsets at Three said: “Teaming the latest innovations from HTC with Three’s network that was built for the mobile internet is hugely exciting for us. Each phone is bursting with technology and perfect for entertaining, sharing and making the stuff we love even more accessible and there’s a choice for everyone, whatever their budget”.
Pricing and availability will be announced shortly.
