After being announced about a month and a half back, HTC 8S has now been finally made available online. The phone is available for Rs 19,359 and it seems only Saholic.com has it for the time being.
This also makes only the second Windows Phone 8 based phone to be available in India.
HTC Windows Phone 8S is a mid-range smartphone. It comes with 4-inch LCD display supporting 800×480 pixel resolution natively. This smartphone weights about 113 grams and is 10.28 mm thick. It houses a dual-core 1 GHz Qualcomm S4 MSM8227 mobile processor and packs 512 MB RAM.
This smartphone offers only 4 GB on-board storage out of which some will be reserved for the system. Thankfully, there is a memory card slot that supports up to 32 GB micro SD card.
At the back of HTC 8S rests a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, which is capable of recording 720p HD videos. There is no front facing camera. HTC has integrated the Beats Audio sound enhancement for better quality audio. HTC has packed 1700 mAh battery and priced this handset at Rs 19,260 which makes it over-all a great deal.
Both smartphones have an internal GPS chip with GLONASS support for better location and mapping accuracy.
