HTC Desire S waltzes in with refreshed look and internals
HTC refreshed its last year Android lineup today, and the HTC Desire was not left out in the cold, albeit with a naming scheme different than Desire 2, that was making the rounds lately.

Its new reincarnation is the HTC Desire S with a 3.7" LCD screen with 480 x 800 pixels of resolution, which receives better internal parts - second generation 1GHz Snapdragon chipset MSM8255, backed up by 768MB of RAM, and a 1450mAh battery. The Desire S is housed now inside an aluminum unibody, as is the habit of high-end HTC handsets lately, and sports a 5MP camera with LED flash and HD video capture, as well as a 1.3MP front-facing cam.

The HTC Desire S will ship globally with Android 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box in the second quarter of this year, and will run the newest version of HTC Sense.
