HTC has officially announced the existence of the HTC One Mini. It was a long time coming — we’ve been hearing about this thing for months now — but it’s finally here. The HTC One Mini is a 4.3 inch smartphone that boasts some seriously nice internals. Whereas most phones of this “small” size would be underpowered these days, the HTC One Mini actually has some serious horsepower for a device of its size. (I still can’t believe we now consider 4.3 inches to be “mini.”)
The 4.3-inch display is 720p HD, and the device is packing a dual-core 1.4GHz processor. That’s a bit less powerful than the HTC One’s quad-core Snapdragon 600 and full HD display, but still quite impressive. We still get that HTC UltraPixel camera with Zoe, as well as Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5 which includes HTC BlinkFeed. Oh, and those nice front-facing stereo BoomSound speakers with Beats Audio are still banging in beautiful fashion.
This device doesn’t sound half bad, and for the specs it has we imagine folks will be able to get it for a great deal cheaper than what the original HTC One is going for. Unfortunately we aren’t sure how much it’ll cost just yet, but those details should come to light soon as HTC has set August as its first date of availability in select markets. The HTC One Mini will be getting a “global” rollout in September.
