HTC has been patronizing HTC One quite intensively and it is pretty evident because the same HTC One is also said to come soon with a dual SIM capability. However, this time it is about the Mini which will stand as a direct rival against Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini among others.
What about the Specs and Features?
HTC One mini comes packed with a slightly smaller screen measuring 4.3-inch display with a resolution of 720x1280 pixel and of 341 ppi pixel density. It will boast the new HTC Sense UI along with the HTC BlinkFeed homescreen. Inside HTC One Mini, there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with 1.4GHz dual-core Krait 300 CPU, Adreno 305 graphics and is also supported by 1GB RAM. The internal memory is 16GB but unfortunately there is no microSD card slot for expanding it.
The HTC One mini runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and sports a 4MP UltraPixel rear camera similar to that of its bigger sibling HTC One. The only difference between them is the lack of optical image stabilization on the mini variant but the mini One still comes with HTC's ImageChip 2 and a BSI sensor of 1/3" size. The front-facing camera is 1.6MP and sports a BSI sensor that can shoot 720p videos.
Connectivity options on the HTC One mini include LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX enabled, Wi-FI a/b/g/n with DLNA and GPS + GLONASS. HTC has provided a range of sensors like gyro, accelerometer, proximity and ambient light sensors. And speaking of its front, the HTC One mini has adopted the One's frontal stereo speakers.
Obviously, Beats Audio is on board and eventually the HTC One Mini is powered by a 1,800mAh Li-polymer battery.
Moreover, there are two color variants of the HTC One Mini that were announced including Glacial Silver and Stealth Black.
