HTC Incredible S: Specs Disappointing at MWC 2011

By Posted 15 Feb 2011, 14:47

If you have been keeping a close eye on developments at the Mobile World Congress 2011, you’ll probably know that HTC have announced a refresh of some of their most popular handsets. We’ve already told you about two of them, but now we have the first details on the HTC Incredible S handset.

First of all, let’s tell you the nitty gritty hardware specs of the device. The Incredible S will pack a 4-inch Super LCD display with a 1Ghz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor, an 8 megapixel camera with 1.3 megapixel front camera and 768MB of RAM.

To sum up the specs in a few words – they definitely don’t do much in the excitement factor. If you take into consideration that the handset doesn’t even have a dual-core processor, you’ll probably want to close your eyes when we tell you that this handset will ship with Android 2.2 Froyo as well.

Even if this is just a refresh of an existing handset, its still new hardware under a new name – HTC could have done a lot better in our opinion. The Incredible S is expected to release during the second quarter of Q2, let us know if you’re as disappointed as we are with the hardware specs – it’s only because the Droid Incredible is so good, maybe we’re expecting too much.

On a slightly more positive note, check out this rumored, unannounced HTC handset called the ‘Revolver’. It carries specs which would make anyone drool at the mouth.

    Everyone is making a big hype about the dual core processors that we are seeing in many new phones coming out recently. However, many of them don't have software optimized for these very powerful processors, therefore, you get about the same speed, if not less, then you would in a 1 GHz snapdragon processor

    I think it depends on their price.
    If the price is targeted at hardware that was current last autumn, then why not. Other handsets already got to feel that (the Xperia play is presold here at about 620 USD incl taxes in switzerland – where as they mentioned it to be 650EUR which normally equates to over $1000 – just cause the handset is pretty underspeced for an april 2011 device in comparision to omap4, tegra2, enoxys and the upcoming qualcomm MSM8x60 dualcores – they are underpowered not only due to the lack of the second core, but A8 vs A9 architecture which on its own accounts for some fair performance gain due to out of order execution and faster, larger caches)
