The HTC One mini was arguably one of the worst kept secrets in the industry, being leaked repeatedly in both words and pictures over the past few months.
Today, the HTC One mini touches down entirely as expected, but hey! – that’s not necessarily a bad thing, eh?
You’ll all be familiar with the HTC One mini spec sheet by now; sing it with me: 4.3in 720p S-LCD3 display (341 PPI) and a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.4GHz with 1GB of RAM.
Like the HTC One, it’s a 4MP rear UltraPixel camera on the HTC One mini (Zoe makes an appearance, too, incidentally), and again like its big brother, there’s no microSD slot. That means you’ll have to make do with the 16GB internal storage, of which 11GB is user accessible.
Other HTC One mini specs include a 1.6MP front camera, non-removable 1,800mAh battery, LTE compatibility (no NFC, however), and Jelly Bean (Android 4.2.2) with HTC’s Sense 5 UI. On the HTC One mini homescreen, BlinkFeed threatens/promises to compile a bunch of "relevant" stuff.
As for the HTC One mini design, it boasts the same aluminium rear as the HTC One, though the sides and front edges are polycarbonate, while the front stereo speakers deliver the now-familiar BoomSound.
Finally, the HTC One mini will be available in August, in Glacial White and Stealth Black. No word on HTC One mini price just yet, but we’ll relay the pounds just as soon as they’re confirmed.
