HTC 10 is yet to go official and there's around a week left before the official launch. Meanwhile a Mini version of the flagship smartphone have surfaced which aims to take a dig at the Apple iPhone SE, all thanks to its power packed internals.
Unlike Apple, HTC isn't skimping on internals for the Mini variants of the smartphone. Instead reports by an Austrian Tech site Android-News suggest that the HTC 10 Mini will be faster than its bigger brother! So far it seems that the idea is to launch a small device while maintaining the performance of a flagship smartphone - an ideology that led to the inception of the Apple iPhone SE.
Incidentally though, this new Android smartphone from HTC sounds more interesting than the latest iPhone from Cupertino giant. So without further ado, let's find out more about the alleged HTC 10 Mini smartphone!
Smaller Footprint following the path of iPhone SE
The HTC 10 Mini is reported to come with a 4.7 inch display upfront. Well, this is much smaller as compared to the rumored 5.15 inch of the original HTC 10 and slight bigger to the 4 inch Apple iPhone SE. The resolution of the display however, isn't known as of yet. Expected HTC to include a Full HD panel on the Mini variant of their flagship smartphone. This will apparently make it sharper than the iPhone SE.
Metal Unibody Design similar to its bigger sibling
HTC 10 is leaked to feature an all new metal unibody design that is tipped to debut with the launch of its bigger brother. Apparently a number of press images of the HTC 10 smartphone has been leaked so far. This successfully gives us a glimpse at what HTC has in store for its Mini variant.
Raw Power thanks to Snapdragon 823!
If the recently leaked report is to be relied upon, the HTC 10 Mini will come with an all-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 chip with cores clocked at 2.8GHz each. According to the report the Snapdragon 823 is merely a modified version of the SD820 with bumped up clockspeed.
Boasts 4GB RAM
Just like the HTC 10, the Mini version of the smartphone is reported to come with a 4GB of RAM. In fact, 4GB has now become a standard for upper mid-range to flagship smartphone of present date. Some manufacturers have upped the game even further by launching smartphone with 6GB of RAM. Well, that's more RAM than your average PC!
Tipped to launch in September
According to the report HTC will launch the Mini version of the flagship smartphone only in September this year. So the Taiwanese maker may eventually end up unveiling it at IFA Berlin.
