HTC 8S will not recieve Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 , 8X will

Nokia pretty much owns Windows Phone to itself , but a small segment of the marketshare is still owned by companies like HTC ,although the famous Android OEM is set in launching a HTC One M8 version with Windows phone on the 19th of August , the company didn't take any interest in replacing the 2 year old HTC 8X and the 8S previously . The company , as Microsoft prescribed , are bound to the contract of dishing out updates for atleast 3 years regardless of the handset , the contract however is not a full-proof measure as HTC decided to drop support for its 8S handset due to its low hardware specifications . The 8s , which was launched as a direct rival to Nokia's Lumia 620 was quickly overshadowed by the competition as it lacked some features and had a higher price compared to Nokia's handsets . Meanwhile the HTC 8 X is scheduled to receive WindowsPhone 8.1 in the near future (exact dates not mentioned)
