After numerous leaks and sightings the HTC One Mini is finally officially launched to carry forward the legacy of the HTC One in a form that slips easily into a pocket.
The HTC One Mini has a 4.3 inch display with a 720p resolution. The device is powered by a 1.4 GHz dual core Snapdragon 400 processor along with 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. However there is no option to further expand the memory using microSD cards.
The HTC One Mini, like the HTC One has an UltraPixel camera of 4 MP but with a 1/3” sensor size. While the HTC Zoe is also seen in the camera, there is no Optical Image Stabilization. It also has a front facing 1.6 MP camera. The device runs on the Android Jelly Bean OS with a layer of HTC Sense 5 UI and Blinkfeed. The phone has a non-removable 1800 mAh battery.
The HTC One Mini is available in Glacial Silver and Stealth Black colour options and is expected to hit select markets in August, followed by a global rollout in September. Sadly the pricing of the device would be disclosed when the device actually comes to the market.
Speaking at the launch, Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation, said, “We are proud to be behind the market’s leading smartphone and now, with the addition of the HTC One mini, the best smartphone family in the world. The HTC One mini embodies everything that makes the HTC One a success on a smaller but equally eye-catching scale.”
