Taiwanese HTC One S Has 1.7 GHz Dual Core, Not What One Would Expect

The HTC One S, the more mid end brother to the wildly popular One X, has been released in Taiwan. It will come with a 1.7 GHz dual core! Sounds exciting, right? It’s an overclocked One S! Nope. It’s running a Snapdragon S3 processor. A last gen processor that was disappointing even for its time. Even at a higher clock, it doesn’t hold a candle to the new S4 processor.

An HTC spokesman claims that the two processors will provide users with the same experience, but anyone who knows their processors knows that’s a dirty lie. It’ll have more stuttering, it’ll be slower, and (since the S4 is based on the new A15 architecture) it’ll have worse battery life. So Taiwan is unfortunately getting a worse phone. let’s hope it’ll be cheaper. The One S is already overpriced.
