Taiwanese version of HTC One S said to launch with dual-core 1.7GHz S3 processor

0. phoneArena 31 May 2012, 11:13 posted on

Possibly because there is a shortage of Qualcomm's 28nm Krait S4 processor, the MSM8960 found in the international version of the HTC One S has been replaced in the manufacturer's home country of Taiwan, with an older dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3, MSM8260...

Man it sucks to be in Taiwan. There is NO way the S3 at 1.7GHz will perform the same as a 28nm S4 Krait at 1.5GHz. Man HTC & Qualcomm dropped the ball on that one.

Well, technically, it's not HTC's & Qualcomm's fault, TSMC is to blame.

I know, I know. They should delay it maybe until early August just to have the S4 in it. That's just me though. Wishful thinking I guess.

Hahahahaha "betrayed"
Like downgrading the processor in a phone amounts to treason or something.

yeah, i can see a Pro or Quad roll-out in the near future alright. Qualcomm can't even get regular S4s for phones that were originally supposed to have them. xD

@superandroidevo : why not ? I know it's an older chip but higher clock speed

the only big difference bringing an S3 to 1.7GHz is going to do is decease the battery life. HTC is just doing this for appearances, you know, for the people that can count and think that the higher the number the better it is.

then why not use the tegra 3,or the exynos 5?
That would make the one s hot.

that's a good question. this version isn't using LTE or HSPA+ 42mbps is it? the Tegra III was definitely an option if so.

I don't think Samsung is interested in selling their cpu to their single biggest competitor. As far as the t3, who knows. Maybe they didnt want it stealing the international One X's quad core thunder.

I wish that it should not happen but if it does that would be a big shame considering that it is the company's home country
