HTC One S, you have a pretty awesome phone. HTC is already off to an excellent start for 2012 with their new "One" series available in Europe and now it's about to take the US markets by storm. We've already reviewed the HTC One S thoroughly with the European model, and today we have the T-Mobile version to share with everyone. More details and beautiful pictures can be found below.
Qualcomm has announced their earnings report, showing a pretty great Q2 of 2012. These results already have plenty of sales from their new Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor for upcoming phones like the HTC One S, but with it barely hitting the streets surely Q3 will look even better.
Blog of Mobile reports that the American manufacturer has a previously unknown phone coming in the near future, and surprisingly it's running the increasingly popular Snapdragon S4 processor. Aside from the benchmark there's very little to go on, but the radio bands indicate that the phone is headed for AT&T, and the screen resolution is an impressive 720p. It sounds like it could be an LTE variant of the DROID RAZR HD.
BlueStacks? If you're reading this on a Windows PC, you really should - it's an impressively simple way to get Android apps onto your full-sized computer, and ever since the software's beta update, it's only gotten better. BlueStacks' success has not gone unnoticed: TechCrunch reports are surfacing that chip maker Qualcomm (you know, the Snapdragon people) has invested in the company after an unusually strong showing this month. The amount of dollars changing hands isn't clear, but sources say it's in the millions.
HTC One X and the One S that hit the web earlier this week. You can see our awesome and detailed reviews from the links below but today I wanted to focus on benchmarks. Read on below to see who takes the top spot and is king of the mobile hill.
NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core powered HTC One X, and then the equally impressive One S with the dual-core Qualcomm S4 Krait processor. We've reviewed them both here at Android Community and will link to them below, but what we were impressed with (among many things) was the battery life and conservation.
HTC One S, a device that brings the full power of the HTC One series made to compete with the best of the best. This device runs Android 4.0.3 right out of the box, has Sense 4.0 (made specifically for the Ice Cream Sandwich environment) and has hardware that backs up the promise of the user interface. This beast is backed up by no less than the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz dual-core processor, otherwise known as Krait and MSM8260A in this case, and ushers in a new era for smartphone cameras as well with not only assistance from the Snapdragon but another chip by the name of HTC Image Chip. Will this member of the One family live up to the new HTC promise?
Ice Cream Sandwich that task got a little harder, but Qualcomm is helping out.
Qualcomm is back this month with another interesting video showing off the power of their Snapdragon powered smartphones. Last year they released a video showing a Snapdragon processor being powered by a bug circus, as in real live bugs and spiders. This time around they tease the efficiency of the Qualcomm Snapdragon by sending a smartphone around the world on a single charge.
