Who loves a white smartphone? No we’re not talking about an iPhone here either. The folks from HTC have announced an all new “special edition” HTC One S with a brand new paint job. They’ve dressed the dual-core powered smartphone up with a white color and added 64GB of internal storage to make it even better.

The One X got its own special edition earlier this year and now the smaller 4.3-inch sibling is getting the same treatment. As you can see from the image above, it has a nice new paint job. Although we aren’t fans of the different white colors we’re seeing already. I was hoping for a solid color experience but sadly that didn’t happen. It’s all about perfection guys!

This enhanced HTC One S has all the specs and characteristics we already know and love about the HTC One S (see our review) but the fact that they’ve tossed 64GB of internal storage inside is probably the best part. I’m not too worried about color, just give me 64GB of storage and a micro-SD slot for the best option. Period.

The special edition One S still rocks that 4.3-inch qHD display, Qualcomm’s 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8 megapixel camera and more. Nothing’s changed here internally other than the 64GB of storage. So far we’re hearing this device will only be offered in HTC’s home town, which is Taiwan. Hopefully this beefed up model makes it stateside because we’re sure many would love the 64GB storage option.

    If only it wasn’t pentile…

      It’s one of the best pentile screens I’ve seen, if that helps any. More importantly, there aren’t many alternatives for those of us who prefer this size. There’s the One S on T-Mobile, the RAZR M on Verizon… and that’s it for good 4.3″ smartphones. They pretty much have the same screen (qHD, with it’s okay-but-not-great pixel density). The One S has a better camera and a nicer design (imo); the RAZR M has smaller size bezels, an SD card slot, and NFC.

      I have a One S and I might’ve liked the white one, not sure. But for me this is big news because it means that Jelly Bean for the One S already exists. It’s just a matter of time now.

        I’ve seen it too. To me there is no such thing as good pentile. My 4″ 480×800 phone has a much better screen. I’m thinking about just buying a used Sensation 4g/xe. It is a decent upgrade over my phone and I don’t need the crazy power. Plus it has CM10 going on so that’s perfect.
