HTC announce the HTC Incredible S

Incredible S_1

Busy times for MWC and the third of their new ‘Evolution’ products to be announced today at MWC is the HTC Incredible S. The incredible was a US-only handset but the new ‘S’ version will be available pretty much everywhere.

I was lucky enough to have a meeting with Phil Blair and Drew Banford from HTC last week and get to have a little play with the Incredible S and this is definitely the one to have as far as I am concerned. It really does take the inside-out, physical-mechanical approach to a new level with its unibody design it looks quite different and has a truly wonderful screen. This one really does stand out. I’m looking forward to doing this review!


The alluring HTC Incredible S smartphone combines cutting-edge design with a premium mobile experience for those who dare to be different. Showing what can be achieved when engineers and designers work together to raise the bar for mobile phone design, the HTC Incredible S smartphone features a stunning, contoured body that highlights the internal hardware components of the device. Capturing and viewing video in crystal clear High-Definition has never been so easy and a bright 4-inch WVGA Super LCD display and stereo surround sound bring a vibrant cinematic experience to the palm of your hand.

HTC Incredible S also takes high quality pictures with its 8-megapixel camera with dual flash, and it easily enables videos, photos and music to be shared from the handset direct to a TV using DLNA® technology. Thanks to the HTC Incredible S’s front facing camera and video call functionality, users will constantly be able to chat with their friends face-to-face.
