A coupe of days ago we mentioned that HTC’s flagship smartphone, the One, is about to have a bigger and smaller version launched in the near future. We did not have to wait for an official word from the Taiwanese company. The just company announced today One’s wee brother, the HTC One Mini. Customers in select markets will be able to enjoy the handset next month, while users in other parts of the world will have to wait until September.
HTC One Mini mid-range Android smartphone
In terms of design, the phone is a spitting image of the original. The HTC One Mini is a mid-ranger and comes with a few sacrifices specs-wise, though most details confirm what we expected from previous rumors.
The handset measures 5.20 x 2.49 x 0.36 inch (132 x 63.2 x 9.25 mm) and features a 4.3-inch S-LCD3 display with a 1,280 x 720 resolution at 341 ppi. The One Mini is slightly less powerful than its big brother and packs a 1.4 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor aided by 1 GB of RAM.
In addition to the 4-megapixel Ultrapixel main camera with Zoe and 1080p video capture, the phone is also equipped with a 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera. It appears that the camera does not offer optical image stabilization, though. However, other HTC One goodies, such as HTC BoomSound speakers and HTC BlinkFeed are included.
The phone comes with 16 GB of internal memory, 1,800 mAh battery and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n. The One Mini runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Sense 5 out of the box. The handset will be available in two color options: Glacial Silver and Stealth Black.
