Just when we were drooling over the recently launched One M9, the company has come up with a refreshed version of its previous year flagship, called the One M8s.

Processor and RAM

This is the department in which both the phones differ tremendously. Where the One (M8) is powered by a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, the One M8s is powered by a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 615 octa-core chipset with 64-bit capabilities. Both the processors are paired with 2GB of RAM each.

Storage

It seems that HTC has cut the corners by equipping the One M8s with only 16GB of internal storage, whereas the earlier One (M8) came with 16GB and 32GB of internal storage. Both the variants however support microSD card slots, wherein you can increase the storage up to 128GB.

Photography

HTC seems to be targeting users who are not inclined towards its Ultrapixels camera technology. In place of the 4-Ultrapixel Duo Camera setup, HTC has opted for a 13-megapixel primary camera. Up front, the company has persisted with a 5-megapixel selfie camera.

Battery

The new One M8s comes with a slightly bigger 2,840mAh battery, as compared to the 2,600mAh battery on the One (M8).

Software

While the HTC One (M8) can be updated to Android Lollipop, the One M8s runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop out-of-the-box. The operating system is wrapped under Sense UI.
