HTC Wildfire Successor–Wildfire S Announced

HTC announced three new handsets at the MWC 2011 the Incredible S, Desire S and the Wildfire S. The Wildfire S is the successor to the low-end budget oriented Wildfire. The company has just beefed up the specs and the resolution of the Wildfire S, compared to the original Wildfire.

The new Wildfire will sport a 3.2-inch display with HVGA (320×480) display. Like the Desire S, the Wildfire S also lacks an optical track pad.


The phone will be powered by a 600MHz Qualcomm CPU with 512MB of RAM and ROM, on board. The usual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and other relevant sensors are also present. The back of the Wildfire S sports a 5MP camera with an LED flash. Sadly, the front of the phone lacks a video calling camera.

Apparently, the Wildfire S will run on Android 2.4 Gingerbread with Sense UI on top of it.   The phone will be available in a variety of colors including black, purple and white. The phone will be available in the Asian and European markets by late Q2.
