Well after months of speculations and rumours running wild about what this little gem would hold and look like, we have finally got some concrete answers and we found out that it is just really a smaller and cheaper version of the HTC One with slightly less specs. So if you can’t afford the big price tag of the HTC One but want all its cool features then this will probably be good choice for you.
The HTC One Mini looks as classy as its bigger and older brother with its super tough sleek body, Gorilla Glass 3 protection and featuring a 4.3 inch capacitive touchscreen and 720 HD display incorporating 341 PPI density. For such a smaller smartphone it can still pack some punch running with a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 400 processor that runs at 1.4GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage but unfortunately no microSD card slot (though you do get 25GB of free storage for 2 years via Dropbox), WiFi, Bluetooth, 4G and LTE capabilities and is super light weighing in at a mere 122g. HTC have disappointingly not added NFC connectivity which could be this phones only downfall.
The HTC One Mini combines all of the HTC One’s best features such as coming with the latest version of HTC’s software with Sense 5.0 plus and Android 4.2.2 OS, HTC BoomSound and BeatsAudio also comes loaded onto the HTC One Mini to boost the sound quality, and also features HTC's firm favourite BlinkFeed User Interface on the homescreen, allowing you to keep all your social media, news and photo content on one screen.
It comes complete with a 4MP rear camera with an LED flash using its Ultrapixel technology but unlike the HTC One it doesn’t have the optical image stabilisation tool on-board. However you do get both pre and post shutter image capture, allowing you to pick the best picture from a series of images. There’s even 1080p Full HD video recording with HDR Video and you also get access to HTC’s Smart Flash and HTC Zoe with sequence shot and in addition to this has a 1.6MP front camera which supports 720p video recording.
The HTC One is due to go on sale anytime soon, with both Vodafone and O2 confirming that they will be selling the new HTC One Mini. It will be available in two colour options which are Stealth Black and Glacial Silver. Prices for this smartphone will be around the £380.00 SIM Free. No contract prices are confirmed as yet though we would think they will start around the £27 mark.
