We’re well used to seeing various leaks - spec sheets, roadmaps, press shots - in the world of mobile phones. Let’s take the HTC One S for example; we knew pretty much exactly what to expect from the phone formerly known as the HTC Ville before it was unveiled at Mobile World Congress.
However, despite the countless HTC One S videos posted from Barcelona in February, HTC France is up in arms over – wait for it – an HTC One S unboxing video. Huh?
The video was posted by French HTC site HTC-Hub, just a few days ahead of the official release of the HTC One S. And let’s be clear here: we’re not talking a full-on review; the video was simply an unboxing by some eager HTC fans.
Rather than demand that the offending video was taken down, HTC France appointed a bailiff to recover the phone. Was that really necessary?
The HTC One S was the Taiwanese manufacturer’s middle child at Mobile World Congress this year. It has a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm SnapDragon S4 processor, 4.3in Super AMOLED display (540 x 960), 16GB internal storage, 1GB of RAM and a 1,650mAh battery.
We're expecting both the HTC One X and One S to drop this Thursday, April 5.
