The HTC One S made its debut in Taiwan today, but with some slight changes. Instead of the phone launching with a 1.5GHz dual-core SnapDragon S4 processor like in Europe and other parts of the world, HTC launched the One S in Taiwan with a 1.7GHz Snapdragon S3 processor. That’s right, they increased the clock speed and used the older SnapDragon S3 processor.
While we don’t know why HTC would make such a move, the possible downgrade could be because of the recent shortage of S4 processors. In a statement to ePrice, HTC said that despite the changes in the Taiwanese One S, the user experience would remain the same.
The phone still packs a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel camera, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.0.3 with Sense 4.0, and more.
