HTC One Mini Gets Full Reveal In More Leaked Photos
The HTC One Mini has been pictured several times in recent months, but the latest leaked photos are the best we’ve seen so far. They’re pretty clear, and they show off the handset’s front and back. Accompanying screenshots also reveal the juicy details about its internals.
As you can see from the pictures, the HTC One Mini is almost identical to the flagship HTC One. In fact, if it wasn’t for the repositioned LED flash on the back of the device, you’d probably say this is the HTC One. But it’s slightly smaller, and it has very different specifications.
The One Mini in this picture has a 4.3-inch 720p display, a 1.4GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. It will also have a 4-megapixel UltraPixel camera — just like the HTC One — and it’ll run Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5.
In the screenshots below, it appears the One Mini has a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor — not the latest Snapdragon 400 chip. But according to AndroidNext, which obtained the pictures, the screenshots are incorrect.
“Do not be confused: CPU-Z seems to generally show the Snapdragon 400 as an S4 – we double checked it on a Samsung Galaxy S4 mini that uses the same SoC,” they report. “As a matter of fact, the important thing to notice is the Adreno 305 GPU, which itself can only be part of a Snapdragon 400.”
In comparison, the flagship HTC One has a 4.7-inch 1080p display, a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, and at least 32GB of internal storage.
There’s a big difference between the two devices, then, and it should mean that the One Mini is significantly cheaper than its bigger brother. That gives those with a tight budget the opportunity to get their hands on the latest HTC Sense release and its UltraPixel camera technology without breaking the bank for the One.
It’s unclear when HTC plans to unveil the One Mini, but recent reports have claimed that we’ll see it in August.
