HTC can’t stop milking its core HTC One design, and the latest addition to the ever-growing family is the One M8s.
Arriving in the UK this month, the One M8s keeps the same metallic unibody chassis and, aside of a few under-the-bonnet hardware changes, looks just like its predecessors.
What it’s essentially aimed at, however, is providing a cheaper price point for potential buyers to get started with the company’s flagship range – previous One handsets, including its One M9, have always been premium devices.
Key changes between the HTC One M8 and One M8s include a 13-megapixel camera sensor, rather than its 4-UltraPixel setup, and a (less capable) Octa-Core processor. It also has a slightly larger battery, at 2840mAh.
Pricing hasn’t yet been announced, but Anandtech says it will cost £380 when it goes on sale, making it a fair bit cheaper than the original M8 or the new M9.
