AT&T Will Begin Selling The HTC One Mini For $99 On August 23


AT&T has today announced that it will begin selling the HTC One mini, the smaller, cheaper version of the flagship HTC One, starting Friday, August 23. The device will be priced at $99 with a two-year contract, and it’ll be exclusive to AT&T, so you won’t get it anywhere else in the U.S.

“Our customers loved the HTC One, so we are excited to offer this slimmer, more compact version,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president of devices at AT&T.

While the One mini is cheaper than its big brother, the two devices share a lot in common. They both ship with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and HTC’s latest Sense 5 user interface onboard, which means you get BlinkFeed and HTC’s nifty camera features like Zoe and Video Highlights.

The One mini also offers the same UltraPixel camera as the One, and the same front-facing BoomSound speakers with Beats Audio technology.

The biggest different between the two devices is in the display and the processor. The One mini has a smaller 4.3-inch Super LCD2 display with a 720p resolution, plus a slower dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.4GHz.
