In addition to going out on a limb with two Facebook-friendly phones, HTC also hedged its wilder bets this Mobile World Congress with updates to three of its more popular phones.

The HTC Incredible S, Wildfire S, and Desire S are all familiar designs that include the HTC Sense interface on top of an Android base.

The high-end HTC Incredible S sports a 4-inch WVGA Super LCD display and stereo surround sound to highlight its multimedia-friendliness. The 8-megapixel camera comes with dual flash, and there's a front-facing camera on board as well for video chats. DLNA support brings the phone's multimedia to a TV.

Meanwhile, the Desire S has a premium, aluminum unibody construction, similar to the HTC Legend. It's outfitted with the Qualcomm 1GHz 8255 Snapdragon processor, front- and rear-facing HD cameras, and a 3.7-inch WVGA display.

Finally, the much more diminutive Wildfire S has a 3.2-inch HVGA display. Its 3.8-inch-tall-by-2.3-inch-wide dimensions also house a 5-megapixel camera. It will be available in a quartet of colors--black, red, white, and blue.

There's no word yet on pricing, availability, or a U.S. launch, but we do know that lucky ducks in Europe and Asia will get to pocket the HTC Desire S, Wildfire S, and Incredible S very soon, sometime in 2011's second fiscal quarter.
