HTC is preparing to launch a new variant of its last year’s flagship smartphone, the One (M8), dubbed the One M8s and there is no change in specifications.
The only change we might witness is a mid-range 64-bit Snapdragon 615 SoC instead of the Snapdragon 801 SoC, if a report from Dutch blog Tweakers is to be believed.
Citing HTC Benelux Director, Mark Moons, the publication reported that the company wants to ensure the availability of the existing HTC One (M8) in some form.
Because HTC is using a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC instead of the Snapdragon 801 SoC, the price is expected to be priced EUR 250 lower than the new flagship One M9, which is priced at EUR 749.
“We want it to sell [for] a time. The new processor is 64-bit and a newer model than those from the M8,” said (translated) Moons.
Unfortunately, there is no other information available as of yet, like which regions the revamped One (M8) will arrive, it’s other specifications, etc.
However, speculations are being made that the new variant will head to Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg markets. Till now, the information is scarce, therefore our readers should take it with a pinch of salt.
