HTC recently confirmed that the European variants of the HTC One S will be available having two different hardware configurations.
The first would be what one might call the standard version, as it’s the one you all probably know. It has the Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core 1.4 Ghz chipset with 1GB of RAM. The other one has the same hardware configuration as the rumored Taiwanese version. It is powered by the Snapdragon S3 clocked at a higher 1.7 Ghz. ” In order to meet massive consumer demands,” HTC has released both variants in Europe. Last year’s Snapdragon S3 has been overclocked to 1.7 Ghz but will it reach the same performance as the new released Snapdragon S4? Here are a few benchmarks results to sort it all out.
Also, in BrowserMark, the One S with the Snapdragon S3 got 87739 points while the Snapdragon S4 got 106712 points. Be careful what you buy that’s what I always say. It’s clear that the S4 crushes the older S3 in every benchmark, even with it’s CPU clocked at 1.7Ghz. Why would HTC sell a slower HTC One S at the same price? Better look at the specs if you decide to get one.
