Introducing the HTC One Mini – Does Size Matter?
July 22nd, 2013 by Rod
HTC isn’t just going to rest on the heels of the HTC One and relax for the rest for the year. It seems that HTC has taken a note from Samsung and is creating a variation of one of their (HTC’s) best sellilng phones. Last week, they unveiled what they have been working on in London and it is a smaller version of their flagship device. Meet the HTC One mini – offering many of the great features of the HTC One but in a smaller package. Thankfully, the HTC One Mini retains the same zero-gap, aluminum unibody design that everyone fell in love with in the original model.
What’s Different About The HTC One Mini?
- 4.3 inch 720p HD display
- 1.4 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor
- 1 GB of RAM
- 16GB of internal storage
- Android 4.2.2 with HTC Sense 5
- front-facing dual BoomSound speakers w/ Beats Audio
- 4MP Ultrapixel rear camera without optical image stabilization
- 1800 mAh battery
- no NFC support
As you can see from the specs listed above, the mini is comparable to last year’s One S but with less sacrifices. The HTC One Mini is set to launch in select markets sometime in August and globally in September. Check out the two models side by side. Is the smaller size worth the lack of some specs (like no NFC support)?
Who prefers the smaller body of the HTC One Mini over everything the original HTC One offers?
