HTC One M8S Debuts Out of Nowhere, Features Snapdragon 615 CPU, 13 MP Duo Camera
HTC just announced today out of nowhere the One M8S handset, without any prior leaks and indication that this product was coming. It seems like a version derived from the HTC One M8, but with a different camera and CPU.
The product is clearly based on the M8 and it brings a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 64 bit processor, clocked at 1.7 GHz, as well as a 13 megapixel Duo camera at the back. The BoomSound speakers are still here and so is the aluminum unibody design. We’ve got a Full HD 5 inch screen upfront, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, as well as a microSD card slot that can host up to 128 GB extra storage.
The battery available here is even bigger than the one of the HTC One M8, which was a 2600 mAh unit. Instead, we get a 2840 mAh unit that’s the same capacity of the HTC One M9, by the way. Finally, we’ve got a 5 MP front camera here and the product is meant to debut in Europe with a $564 price tag.
