HTC One S brings Android 4.0 to T-Mobile on April 22

htc-one-s-630

We just learned that the HTC One S is launching in Europe next Monday and now we find out it should be available in the US next month. David Beren of TmoNews reports that the HTC One S is coming to T-Mobile around April 22nd. The carrier previously announced they would release the phone in Q2, put up a registration page for more info, and showed off the device at SXSW in Austin, but this is the first time we have a rumored launch date.

The April 22nd date comes from an internal training document meant for employees, but we all know how product launches shift so it would be a week later. When it does finally arrives, the HTC One S will be the first new device that T-Mobile offers with Android 4.0.

Earlier this week, a video appeared on YouTube that shows off a HTC One S running T-Mobile software. This version doesn’t have the T-Mobile branding like the device that I played with, so it’s likely an older model.

From what we know the T-Mobile One S is pretty much finished and in the final stages of testing. We expect to receive an official announcement with release date and pricing in the coming weeks. Based on previous high-end phone launches on T-Mobile, we expect the HTC One S to debut around $199-249 with 2 year agreement.

If you need a new phone on T-Mobile, this is the One to get. For those that don’t mind waiting till the summer, you might want to hold out and see what makes the Samsung Galaxy S III special.

Update: New details indicate that the T-Mobile will launch the HTC One S on April 25th rather than April 22nd.

    Excellent news! I am a fan of this, I think the wife will be very happy!

  • Bryan Stoner

    The specs of this phone are pretty solid. 200$ on contract seems about right. Would you guys update the best of T-Mobile article if this pans out to be a winner?

  • SGB101

    im waiting for news when the one x, will be available on t-mobile uk, im hoping some time next week, like the other 3 carriers.

    why is there a trend now for the euro to get the devices before the US? it was once the other way around!

    • http://htcsource.com Nick Gray

      When it comes to global releases, Europe always gets the phones first. The US carriers only get a phone before Europe if it was created as an exclusive for one service provider (think EVO 3D, HTC Rezound, EVO 4G, myTouch Slide 4G).

      Doesn’t Europe get HTC’s new phones next week?

  • WlfHart

    It’s nice to have the option, but I think I’m going to hold out for the Galaxy Note II. But if no news on that comes out by summer this will probably be my fall back.

  • spazby

    this is a great phone

  • dVyper

    The guy in that video is an idiot.

  • Alexander drzfr3shboialex

    Decisions. Galaxy Nexus, this, rumored HTC One X for t-mobile or gs3? Galaxy S3 will have touchwiz(which I hate) but samsung phones are easily rooted. I should buy the htc one s and return it if there are awesome details on the sg3 :D

    16g of memory still not enough and you don’t get the whole 16g to use

  • sunrise

    No microSD, with only 16GB memory built in.
    Low quality FFC
    Non removable battery

    This phone isn’t really for me.

    Maybe in 2 months T-Mobile will do what they did with the Vibrant and what Verizon did with the Droid and release a version with more memory, a microSD, a better FFC, a larger battery, and call it the HTC One S Maxxx, or something like that.

      I think that beats the whole purpose of releasing only three phones.

      • sunrise

        Oh really? That beats the whole purpose of releasing only three phones?

        Strange, you didn’t say that when HTC already beat that purpose.

        Like I said on another blog.
        HTC One X International will use Tegra-3
        HTC One XL on At&t will use Krait S4, no microSD and a SLCD-2 screen, Sense 4.0
        HTC One X androidandme rumored for T-Mobile Tegra-3 with STOCK ICS, no sense 4.0
        HTC One X rumored for Sprint with a microSD, larger battery and an Amoled screen instead of SLCD-2. Different from the international version.

        So let’s see, that’s basically 4 different One X variants, and we haven’t even gotten into One S or One V.

        So basically, HTC already broke away from their model of wanting to release only three phones.

    I’m going to hold off because I want to know what other have in the summer or if T-Mobile does get the HTC one x, so I’m going to wait.
