Finally, HTC unveiled the much discussed device, the One Mini, which is expected to hit selected markets in August, followed by a global launch in September. It appears that the earlier rumor suggesting that the Taiwanese manufacturer will launch the device this month was true, expected to be hitting the shelves in UK on 9 August.
We have seen purported images and specifications of HTC One Mini, but let’s just forget rumors and talk facts and real specifications: The mini version packs a 4.3-inch display sporting a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels compared to the 4.7 inch, 1080p display of HTC One. The HTC One Mini is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor with a clock speed of 1.4GHz, along with 1GB RAM that looks pretty good for a mid-range smartphone.
On the storage side, the device has a 16GB internal storage. The disappointing thing is that the device doesn’t come with a microSD card slot. Though not exactly a necessity, having extra storage space is always good.
The phone comes with a 4MP UltraPixel front camera with 1/3-inch sensor size with a 1.6MP front facing camera. Obviously, the camera cannot give you the same results as its bigger version but it should be close to it considering the fact that’s it’s the downgraded version of HTC One. On the software side, the device is running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with Sense 5 UI on top of it.
The device is expected to hit selected markets in August, something which was already rumored by many people on the internet predicting that the device will hit the shelves in UK on 9 August. The device will be available in two colors: Glacial Silver and Stealth Black. At the moment there are no details about the pricing of the device.
