We’re patiently awaiting the HTC 10’s unveiling, but that’s no matter for the rumor mill — spin-offs of the non-existent devices are already being talked about. This time we’re hearing that HTC will be reintroducing the Mini variant of their annual flagship series.
The HTC 10 Mini, as it’s succinctly called, isn’t quite as small as its name would suggest. It’s allegedly going to be a 4.7-inch device, a size which was seen as humongous just half a decade ago. But times have changed, and that’s the new “Mini” standard.
Size aside, this phone is said to be getting 4GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 823, a chipset we’ve heard will be in other phones at some point this year. It’s presumably going to be an improvement over the Snapdragon 820, but we’re not sure in which ways aside from a higher clock speed.
That said, it’s going to be pretty awkward if a spin-off model ends up being more powerful than the big brother it’s based on. If the rumor is to be believed, we’re told it’ll be arriving at some point in September, which is quite a ways away from where we’re standing. But that’s only if the rumor is true — let’s try and wait for the HTC 10 before we start thinking about anything more from the Taiwanese company.
