When it comes to modern day smartphones, the thinking seems to be “go big or go home”. How else can you explain the existence of phones that are too large to comfortably fit in your pants’ pocket? That’s why HTC’s new One Mini is a breath of fresh air. On the outside, the One Mini looks almost exactly like its bigger brother, with a few cosmetic differences. The phone now features a 4.3 inch 720p S-LCD3 screen and smaller Boomsound speakers. However,the volume control is still on the right side, the micro-USB is still on the bottom, and the micro-SIM is still on the left, and the power button and headphone jack are still located on the top. It also features the same 4MP UltraPixel camera found on the back HTC One, with a 1.6MP camera up front. The major differences are under the hood. The One Mini uses a 1.4GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 and 1GB of RAMts (compared with the One’s quad-core Snapdragon 600 and 2GB RAM), and there’s a smaller 1,800mAh battery running the show. One thing that the Mini and it’s sibling share, though, is that both phones run Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5.0 out of the box.
Look for the HTC One Mini to drop in select markets in August, with global availability starting sometime in September.
