HTC One Mini Officially Announced, A HTC One with mid-level specs
After long string of leaks and rumours, HTC has officially unveiled the HTC One Mini today. HTC One Mini is the compact version of original flagship HTC One, but with mid-level specs. The smartphone design is very much similar to the HTC One but comes with smaller screen size and low hardware. According to HTC, the One Mini will be available beginning August worldwide and the first countries to see the launch will be Germany and UK.
HTC has packed the One Mini with 4.3-inch HD Super LCD 3 display having 341PPI density, 1.4GHz Dual-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (MSM8930) processor, 1GB RAM, Adreno 305 GPU and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 5.0. The smartphone also comes with 4MP Ultrapixel rear camera with 1.6MP front facing camera, 1800mAh Battery, 16GB internal storage and LTE support.

Unlike HTC One the smartphone misses NFC & Infrared Support.

The One Mini is 9.25mm thin and weighs 122 grams. HTC One Mini will come in two colours, Glacial Silver and Stealth Black.
While HTC One Mini is quite decent, the main thing is that how HTC will price the phone. The smartphone will compete easily with unannounced Motorola's Moto X and Samsung's already announced Galaxy S4 Mini. In addition, HTC One Max is also on the way and is rumoured for September release.
