S3-based HTC One S officially launched in India at Rs. 33,590 (MOP)

HTC has finally launched its long-awaited One S smartphone in India, at an MOP of Rs. 33,590.

We'd seen online retailers like Saholic and Infibeam list the HTC One S for as low as Rs. 33,000 earlier. 

For now unfortunately, HTC is shipping the Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 Scorpion-equipped HTC One S to India, with a less power-efficient 1.7GHz dual-core processor, instead of the current-gen dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Krait processor. This is due to the shortage of Snapdragon S4 Krait processors, for which Qualcomm is facing high demand. The situation will reportedly resolve itself soon however.

The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-based HTC One S include a 4.3-inch SuperAMOLED 540x960 display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage without a microSD expansion slot, 25GB of free Dropbox storage (for 2 years), VGA front camera, Beats Audio, no FM radio, a 1,650 mAh battery, and an 8MP autofocus f2.0 camera with a 28mm lens and LED flash, capable of 1080p HD video recording.

In terms of connectivity, the HTC One S offers HSPA, Wi-Fi, DLNA, micro-USB 2.0, HDMI, 3.5m jack, and NFC. Read full specifications of the HTC One S here. As you would have seen from our previous coverage, we are not quite convinced HTC has priced the One S satisfactorily, when its quad-core counterpart, the HTC One X (read our review) is within reach at roughly Rs. 36,100.

Other devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S II, also sport previous gen dual-core processors, and now come with ICS out-of-the-box, but are priced much lower, at less than Rs. 28,000. Do you think the HTC One S, with its premium feel, SuperAMOLED display, 1GB of RAM, and Beats Audio technology are enough to swing the deal at that price? Let us know, in the comments section below.
