Even as we wait for HTC to officially launch the One S in India, online retailer Infibeam has jumped the gun and is already retailing it for Rs 36,157. We are not sure about the logic behind this pricing considering the One X is available for Rs 36,099 on the same store. Also Read - HTC One S abandoned, won't receive any further software updates
UPDATE: Our reader, Venky, points out the One S is available for Rs 33,000 on Saholic. Also Read - HTC says that One X, One X+, One S and Butterfly will get new Sense 5 interface
The One S features a 4.3-inch qHD (960×540 pixels) AMOLED display, a 1.7GHz Qualcomm S3 processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage and a 8-megapixel rear and VGA front camera. HTC had earlier announced it will launch the One S with Qualcomm’s S4 processor, which had comparable, if not better, performance than Nvidia’s Tegra 3 and Samsung’s Exynos Quad processors, both running four cores. However, it is launching it with an S3 processor in India and some other markets, due to a supply shortage from Qualcomm.

Mind you, this is not the official pricing revealed by HTC and we are still keeping our fingers crossed.
