HTC has launched HTC One S in its home country, Taiwan. But the One S launched in Taiwan is not the same as international version of HTC One S. It is powered by MSM8260 Snapdragon S3 clocked at 1.7 GHz instead of MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 clocked at 1.5 GHz used by international version. The Snapdragon S3 has older 45nm technology and less power efficient. To match the performance of Snapdragon S4, HTC overclocks the processor to 1.7 GHz. One of the company’s officials said that it will give the same experience to user.
The rest specifications are similar to the international version. It has 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, 1 GB of RAM, 8 MP camera with Full HD video recording, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, DLNA, Lithium-Polymer 1650 mAh battery. Other features are MicroSIM card support, gyroscope, GPS with A-GPS, as well as TV-out. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is installed on this phone. HTC One S is sold in Taiwan for $600 USD.
