The HTC One S launched in India and demand in the region has been brisk despite a major change in the lineup
. Replacing the extremely popular dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 S4 processor is the dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor. This isn't a shock considering that HTC had already announced that selected markets would be getting the S3 flavored version of the phone
instead of the S4.
The HTC One S is priced in a range of 33,000 INR to 36,000 INR which is equivalent to $600-650 USD. The price in Singapore for the S3 powered variant of the HTC One S is S948 or the equivalent of $750 USD. Other prices for the phone in the region include RM 1,800 in Malaysia, ($580 USD) while the limited edition Beats Audio model rings up as RM 2,000 ($700 USD). In Indonesia, the HTC One S is a tidy 5.5 million Rupiah ($585 USD), while in the Philippines, the phone will soon launch at a price of Php 27,000 ($630 USD).\
