The HTC One Mini has been rumored pretty much since the launch of the original HTC One and was finally unveiled almost two weeks ago. It’s the first time HTC has seen decent success with a smartphone in a couple of years now, so it only makes sense for the company to want to build upon that and expand the line. Thus, the HTC One Mini was born.
As you can see in the press photo above and in earlier shots, the design is a bit more narrow than its older sibling. Much of the aesthetics remain the same however, and it maintains the HTC One’s reputation as one of the best-looking devices out there. The photo was obtained by Android Police, which also cleverly points out that the Beats logo on the back of the phone isn’t sporting its usual red color. Just above that is the AT&T logo — enjoyable for some and disappointing for many.
The HTC One Mini will feature a smaller 4.3-inch display (hence the “mini”) with 720p HD resolution, a dual-core 1.4GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.2.2. Plus it’ll include HTC’s usual goodies like its Sense UI and Zoe camera functionality.
The price will most likely be somewhere south of the regular HTC One’s $199 with a two-year contract. The phone will be available in select markets this August. It appears once the HTC One Mini arrives in the United States, AT&T will be at least one of the carriers.
