HTC One M8s – Europe’s cheaper slightly different but still the same HTC One M8 version
Instead of getting the Snapdragon 801 processor you will get a Snapdragon 615 clocked at 1.7 GHz and the Ultrapixel rear camera turned into an ordinary 13MP camera. The front camera is a little different as well, with less sharpness at F2.0 versus F/2.8, but it still has a 5 MP sensor. M8s does have a slightly bigger battery at 2840 mAh versus the previous 2600 mAh battery.
Design-wise the changes are small, but observable. The metal chassis is just a bit thicker at 9.55mm versus the previous 9.35mm, and you will not get a 32GB version, you will have to be OK with 16GB plus a microSD card.
Apart from the above changes, HTC One M8s is the same solid 2014 flagship with a 5.5” 1080p LCD screen with 2GB of Ram, LTE AC Wi-Fi and Android 5.0. The device will reportedly cost £380, a decent cut from the usual M8 £550.
There is no official launch date yet and no word whether the device will be available outside Europe.
