HTC One S Benchmarks Don’t Disappoint

So far, we’ve heard HTC announce the One S, learned the phone will be coming to T-Mobile in the States, and given it a quick hands-on at the Mobile World Congress. Since then, the phone’s popped-up in a video where, while the hardware still looked like the international version, with no special carrier badging, the software on the phone clearly made it out to be the One S as it will come to T-Mobile. We’ve also finally heard our first rumor about a possible retail launch date for the phone, which could arrive on April 22. Tonight we get to see the T-Mobile version of the One S with its T-Mobile livery intact, and running some benchmarks to give us an idea of the phone’s performance.

Falling somewhere between the One X/XL and the One V, the One S runs a Qualcomm MSM8260A – don’t let that number fool you, because while the 8260 is an older S3 chip, the 8260A is one of the hot new S4 components. As a result, the phone’s Quadrant score is pretty impressive. The One S scores a 4729 here; compare that to the 4952 we’ve seen attributed to AT&T’s One X (the XL).

Expect to see the HTC One S come to T-Mobile within the next month.
