HTC Uses NASA Technology to Improve Its HTC One S Smartphone


In order to improve the durability of its new line of handsets, HTC decided to pay more attention to NASA and the materials it uses for its devices.

It is worth mentioning that the aluminum case on the HTC One S smartphone is treated using a process called microarc oxidation. The latter represents an electrochemical surface treatment process that NASA uses on its satellites.

With its help HTC managed to make a housing that is 3 times stronger than stainless steel.

HTC's One series was announced in February at the Mobile World Congress. The smartphone from the company's new line is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with 1.5GHz dual-core CPU.

In addition, the device boasts a 4.3-inch Gorilla Glass touchscreen. In addition, it would be interesting to note that the phone is just 7.9 mm (0.31 inches) thick, which makes it the firm's thinnest phone yet.
