The HTC Incredible S is set to launch in red, according to a range of pictures displayed on the internet.
The Danish website Dustin shows the Android HTC smartphone – which looks to have the same spec – in all of its red glory. Sadly a release date or price is no where to be seen.
Assuming the Incredible S really is getting a new look it will go perfectly alongside the current matt black offering, and that is fine by us. With all the talk of ‘white smartphone this’, ‘white tablet that’, it’s nice to see some other colours in the spectrum getting a look in.
If you can’t wait for red, the black Incredible S can be bought for £499.95 SIM-free from the Carphone Warehouse.
Besides Android 2.2 (Froyo), it boasts a nice-sized 4-inch display, 720p recording, a speedy 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 768MB of RAM and a powerful 8-megapixel camera.
We weren’t overly impressed with the HTC Incredible S’s talents in our review, “Internally the 1GHz processor is capable and competent, though the mere 1.1GB of internal storage is a bit measly and a potential chink in the HTC Incredible S’s armour. Our review sample, which came from the Carphone Warehouse, was supplied with an 8GB microSD card. That’s welcome as it means there is space for a fair few tunes to play through the pretty good loudspeaker or through headphones.
“There’s a wow factor component to the HTC Incredible S in that the touch icons beneath the screen which give access to the Android Home, Menu, Back and Search functions rotate. As you swivel the smartphone in your hand to get to wide screen mode, the icons turn too so that they are the right way up.”
If and when HTC confirms the aesthetical change, we shall let you know.
