HTC is definitely feeling "More Than One"  as it just unveiled yet another smartphone, the One M8s.

According to AnandTech, the HTC One M8s is positioned between the mid-range and flagship segment. On the outside, it looks exactly like the One M8. However, much of the changes are on the inside.

Dimension-wise, the One M8s is almost similar to the One M8 except that it is slightly thicker (9.55 vs 9.35mm). Despite weighing the same at 160g, HTC managed to squeeze in a slightly bigger battery (2,840 vs 2,600mAh) on the One M8s.

Other changes include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor (4 x Cortex A53 at 1.7GHz + 4 x Cortex A53 at 1.0GHz), 2GB RAM, Android 5.0 and the latest Sense 7 user interface. It also retains the dual-camera setup, but the rear UltraPixel camera sensor is now replaced with a 13-megapixel f/2.0 camera module (the same as that used on the Desire Eye). The front-facing camera remains at 5 megapixels and comes with an aperture of f/2.8.

The One M8s will be available in several parts of Europe and the retail price in the U.K is £379.99 (estimated to be ~S$764 when converted directly). It is not known at the time of publication whether the handset will be available in Singapore.
