HTC Launches the One M9s with Helio X10 CPU
HTC is slowly going the Samsung route by launching a number of devices in quick succession that can get quite confusing for consumers. Today, HTC launched the One M9s that looks pretty much the same as the One M9 apart from a few changes in the hardware department.
The One M9 sports a 5-inch FullHD LCD display, 2840 mAh battery; a MediTek Helio X10 chipset under the hood, 13MP front camera with OIS and a UltraPixel front camera. You’ll find 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage, which is expandable up to 2TB.
Notable difference from the M9 is the MediaTek Helio X10 chipset that HTC has gone with instead of the Snapdragon 810 that gave the company quite a bit of trouble. HTC has also downgraded the camera from 20MP to 13MP.
Connectivity options include quad-band 2G/3G and LTE over a multitude of bands. There’s Bluetooth v4.1, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, NFC and GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS and Beidou.
The HTC One M9s is available for pre-order in Taiwan for $390 shipping will begin on November 21. No word yet on when the device will be available
