Description

Besides the OS, everything else in the One (M8) for Windows seems to be the same - the screen is still 5 inches big and has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, while the chipset powering the whole shebang is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 - a perfectly sufficient chip that will no doubt enable a very smooth and fluid user experience with Windows Phone 8.1.
