HTC is too much conscious about their handsets and that is the reason they select every part according to the users requirement. The HTC ONE M8s has Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615 system on the chip which is paired with Quad-core 1 GHz Cortex-A53 & Quad-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A57 processor and Adreno 405 GPU for handling the graphical tasks.

 For running this giant handset in a logical manner, the mobile need the powerful power source.
