We’ve heard tales of a smaller, cut-down version of the HTC One flagship Android phone before, and now it has been pictured in a new leak, confirming it’s at the very least being considered for release by the company.
An anonymous source has sent the image, along with a few details, to tech site Engadget, where it’s said the phone will have a 4.3-inch display with a 720p resolution, which puts it down a notch from the 4.7-inch, 1080p screen fitted to the HTC One. Inside is a 1.4GHz processor, thought to be a Snapdragon 400, but there’s no word on the RAM or amount of internal storage.
HTC may fit the UltraPixel camera seen on the HTC One, although this hasn’t been confirmed in this leak, but the phone was capable of 1080p video recording. Android 4.2.2 was installed on the phone, along with the latest version of HTC Sense, complete with BlinkFeed.
The leaked HTC One Mini shares a similar aluminum unibody with the One, except for a plastic screen surround, and there’s no infrared blaster as there is on its big sister. Beats Audio branding says the sound enhancement software is onboard though.
HTC hasn’t confirmed any of the information regarding the HTC One Mini yet, and it’s not expected to make any official announcement until after the summer. It could be a winner for HTC, thanks to its good looks and unusual metal chassis, so let’s hope it comes a little sooner.
