HTC's One X and One S are now up for grabs on Three and Vodafone

Vodafone and Three, have announced that they're now offering pre-orders on HTC's One X and One S Android phones.

The One X is HTC's latest flagship device with a 1.5GHz dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space.

It features a 4.7-inch Super IPS LCD 2 capacitive multi-touch display reinforced with Corning's Gorilla Glass. The resolution is impressively high at 1280x720 pixels which gives a pixel density of 312 pixels-per-inch (ppi), so you can expect some pretty sharp visuals from that expansive stretch of glass.

The One S sports a 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 dual core Snapdragon Krait processor, 16GB of storage, 1GB of RAM and a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass and a 960x540 pixel resolution at 256ppi.

Both handsets run the latest version of Google's Android operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) 4.0 and use HTC's Sense 4.0 interface. Sense 4.0 features some advanced camera capabilities, which are propped up by a dedicated chip.

Each phone has an 8-megapixel primary camera with a backlight-illuminated sensor (BSI) and a 3264x2448 pixel resolution.

They can both capture still images and video simultaneously at 1080p HD quality with stereo sound recording and video stabilisation.  There's also a rapid capture mode for still images.

Other features included an LED flash, autofocus, geo-tagging, face and smile detection and front facing secondary cameras with video call support.

HTC also throw in Beats Audio enhancement and 25GB of free DropBox cloud storage.

On Vodafone's network you can get the HTC One X in white for free from £41 per month on a 24 month contract with 900 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of mobile internet data per month.

The One S is available in grey for free from £36 per month for 24 months with 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of mobile data.

You can also get either device on Vodafone's Data Test Drive package.

The company explained: ‘With Vodafone's Data Test Drive, pay monthly smartphone customers can use as much data as they like, for whatever they like, for three months so they can fully explore what their brand new HTC OneX or HTC OneS has to offer.'

Three is offering the One X from £30 per month as part of a 24 month contract with a £99 up-front price tag, unlimited ‘All-you-can-eat' data, 100 minutes and 5000 texts per month. The same deal for the One S will cost you £27 per month though there is a wide range of other packages to suit your needs.

Sylvia Chind, head of handsets at Three said: ‘The new HTC One X and HTC One S are two of the hottest smartphones for 2012. Our new worry free data plans make Three the network of choice for these innovative handsets as they give customers the freedom to explore and enjoy the mobile internet without ever having to worry about surprise data charges.'
