(Updated) HTC One S Running T-Mobile Software Handled On Video In The Wild

Update: As a number of you have pointed out, there is no T-Mobile branding on this device, but it’s clearly running T-Mobile software. We’re not sure if this is an older model that was used for testing, but it’s an HTC One S running T-Mobile software and that still excites us.

OH HAI! Thanks to a TmoNews tipster who just dropped off this YouTube clip showing off the upcoming HTC One S running T-Mobile software. It’s beautiful, it’s sleek, it’s beautiful and I want it as the camera looks magnificent. Yes, I said I want an Android phone — don’t all be shocked at once! Seriously though, enjoy the two minutes and twenty-three seconds of HTC One S goodness.

Thanks J!

    How’d that kid get one already?!

    • http://twitter.com/WhyBeTea YBT

      And How do I get it too?!

      • Dleonardgutman

         Very interested as to how he got it; doesn’t make sense…

        • Idonthaveone

          He probably got it on the awards ceremony tmobile has each year for top salesman. I don’t think he is one of the winners but might know someone.

        • Jeff

          My brother would have one right now if that were the case.

  • Youngt82

    Its funny i dont see the T-Mobile branding on the phone but maybe they will just keep it as HTC this time:)

    • http://tmonews.com David

      I didn’t see any branding either, but if you check out the shot I used with the featured post, T-Mobile TV and Voicemail icons are clearly visible, it’s definitely running T-Mobile software.

      • EXIBITman

        I think i will pass on this htc i just picked up a blazers 4Gs on friday off contract this blazers is very fast and screen is prefect size the battery last me all day

      • taino211

        Is everyone here really that dense?? The reason the phone doesn’t have any branding and only a serial number is because it’s probably a pre-production test model. So in other words, there is no need to silk screen the tmobile logo on it because it will never reach the public.

        The serial number is so they could keep track of their test devices and is the reason why he was covering it.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YZYZDJ7XT5VBWZEWZHSQYSOCQU Erick

    He has really long nose hair’s lol

  • Dennis P

    sick! i wanted to see hardware info

  • http://www.abstractwankery.com oZ

  • Nick Thai

    I want to see S-OFF on this Phone. Without S-OFF, HTC sucks

    • HuBCaP

      Yeah the amaze being one of those phones not having s-off. I regret buying it. So now I’ll wait if the one series will get it s-off if not hope Samsung has it off and jump ship from HTC

  • Doogie

    HE needs to fix his nose ring and CUT YOUR NAILS DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://twitter.com/mrfisch13 Devin Fischer

    what a doucher

  • Spanky

    I like HTC phones. This one, however, looks like an updated version of the Sensation. Also, non-removable battery? Pass.

    • http://twitter.com/SParKlngCyaNide SparklingCyanide

      Nothing wrong with that, the Sensation was a fantastic phone and this one is way more powerful and even more sleek.

    • guest

      …and no NFC and only 16 GB internal storage and no SD slot.  What a waste.

  • http://twitter.com/SParKlngCyaNide SparklingCyanide

    Is he at Chucky Cheese?? LOL  Sweet phone tho, I’m really going to take a look at this but with the htc One X and GS 3 coming out I’ll have to wait and see which I want.

    • androapple

      I think the HTC one S is better than the one X because the HTC One S runs snapdragon s4 which is faster than the tegra 3 quad core on the one X. And the One S has a little smaller screen which is just the perfect size. After all they both have the same camera and also the one S has a better looking aluminum body. The only advantage of the one X for me is the higher resolution screen.

      • http://twitter.com/SParKlngCyaNide SparklingCyanide

        I know and I completely agree, I favor the One S as well.  – )  but I’m looking at a bigger picture with other people’s tastes as well. tho the other phones are very attractive and I would like to try them all out before committing first.

  • Desi

    Looks like a fake, just look at the color of the camer “ring”. Its not a real One S, its probably some other knockoff device.

    • Edy6401

      What are you talking about? Fake? Look at the ring?

    • jonathan3579

      Knock off? Lol, oh come on!

  • nerdlust

    Im loving my sensation but this does look sweet, plus faster data and processor

  • Deadeye37

    Am I the only one who wanted to see him try to take out that nose ring thingie?  Its like he went fishing and got the hook stuck in his nose.

    Why does he get to handle the phone that should be in my hands right now?

    • http://dammitimmad.tumblr.com Ty Hunt

      He’d have it out in 3 seconds. The pointed parts are threaded and unscrew pretty quickly. 

  • jonathan3579

    His fingernails were driving me crazy. Yuck…

    • Mr_Vault

       I couldn’t stop staring at his nose….

  • EXIBITman

    How does a 16yrd lil punk with a nose ring and tatoos get his dirty lil hands on htc one s this is a fake.

    • http://twitter.com/fightcrazy Vinny

      I was just thinking the same damn thing.

  • fixxmyhead

    damn bro brush ur teeth

  • Ivan Sanchez

    i love how everyone is commenting on the guy and his appearance.  no one seems to care about the phone..lol

  • Which way is Up?

    Nice! I just got the ICS update with Sense 3.6 on my Sensation XE and I am pretty excited for the devices with Sense 4.0 now.

    Nothing about the video says fake, however it does seem odd that this fellow has an unbranded One S running T Mo software unless it is an international T Mo UK One S or he’s simply the sibbling of the real owner posting a vid…

  • Troy1helen

    I think a tester for the phone may have left it at a McDonalds play place, and then this kid found it.

  • JamesJ13

    He probably found the phone at a bar when it was lost.
    (iphone joke for those who dont get it)

  • Audry76

    I feel sad after watching this video…

  • Johhnybgood

    that guy is repulsive..

  • Udubb

    ICS is old news, its all about Jelly Bean baby!!!

  • http://twitter.com/ingram1225 William Ingram

    what a crappy review… but beautiful phone. Beauty and the Beast? 

  • Jayna

    Already on Tmobiles website

  • ObsceneJesster

    Looks like my Sensation. HTC couldn’t come up with anything new? Sorry HTC but Samsung now makes the better phone. You had a huge lead considering Samsung used to be responsible for devices like the Behold. I think my Sensation is the last HTC device I will ever purchase. I’m going back to the Galaxy S world until someone can unseat Samsung and take their King of Android Crown.

    • Bob

      I’m just wondering if you have seen the specks on this device, fastest shutter speeds, fastest auto focus, the fact that you can take stills while recording video.  I know the galaxy s 2 well, it’s a great device don’t get me wrong, but this phone is pretty amazing.  It blows the sensation out of the water.  I got to play with this device and let me tell you it is by far my new favorite device.

  • http://dammitimmad.tumblr.com Ty Hunt

    That’s not a T-Mobile variant. The camera ring is the wrong color and it’s unbranded. It’s probably the unlocked version running T-Mobile software, either for testing or a ROM.

    Also, why does he keep the left side of the speaker covered the entire time?

    • Guest

      ummm… looks like he’s left handed. It’s not a conspiracy. omfg! those fingernails are nasty! And that f*cking nose ring makes him look like a bull! I want to rip that stupid thing off his fugly face. Nice phone but too distracted by the reject reviewing it.

      • http://dammitimmad.tumblr.com Ty Hunt

        Wasn’t looking to start a theory. Just legitimately confused because it looked like an awkward way to hold the phone.

        • Guest

          I see… yeah, it was just to display the phone. sorry, that guy creeped me out a bit.

        • guest

          he says in the video he has to cover up the serial #

    • mr listen

      He was covering up the serial number

    • Mr Lukes

       1:12, there is a second when he is not covering left top corner. Looks like there is a sticker or something like that.

      • http://tmonews.com David

        It’s a unique number for the phone he doesn’t want to show to not get someone in trouble.

  • god of houston

    The worst phone spokeman i ever witness lol jk but yea he did’t know much about android

  • j5ive

    That nose ring crap is the worst.

  • Jcdc98

    How about you idiots focus on the phone and not the guy reviewing it you are all sitting at computers or on your phone replying to a video on a tmobile website I’m sure your not fucking super models to each his own

    • god of houston

      YOU MUST HAVE A CRUSH ON THE GUY?FAG

    • http://twitter.com/412News 4-12

      AMEN!

  • Derrick227

    Those kids were distracting……never do a hands on in a loud enviroment unless you are at a conference or something

  • http://www.unscripted360.com/ Deacon

    no removable battery .. i’m hoping that will change when it hits the states.

  • http://yellowrex.com YellowRex

    Really looking forward to this phone!  I’m a first-day Vibrant buyer, so I’m upgrade eligible on May 6th, and the One S should be released by then.  The One S is almost everything I want in a new phone.  Not real excited about the capacitive keys, but apparently it’s only the keys on my Vibrant that doesn’t work reliably.  I’d rather have physical keys or software keys like the Nexus.  And then there’s Sense, but there’s also always third-party ROMs.

  • Ff00x

    what was he talking about, I couldn’t hear anything over the screaming children. . . Horrible video, I wasted my time, should have just looked at some pictures

  • Bob

    this idiot just got fired from t-mobile for this.  that was a t-mobile test device and the serial numbers are engraved in the top left of each device.  dumbass

    • Gregg Brown

      Actually he works for HTC. I heard that he is also being sued over this. I don’t get why he bothered hiding the serial number when he shows his damn face.

      • SSJNightmare6

        Actually dude, i traded some guy a white nexus for this phone. i don’t work for tmobile or htc thats why i didn’t care to show my face. On the bright side, i still have it and its pretty beast. 

  • Lawrence of Arabia

    Who had the idea that a recent apps Key was more useful than a search key/menu?
    Before long press home was giving u recent apps.

    t-mobile sucks!Once they have you sign their f88king contract, they don’t care if you are getting signal.
    I am not getting signal in my new office and when i call they said sorry and don’t do anything about it.  I complain for months now.
    If you want to get out of the contract,you have to paid them off with  $200.00 per line.
