HTC One Mini Revealed


HTC One Mini


The HTC One has been applauded by users as one of the great smartphones of today and its continued popularity doesn’t seem to be slowing anytime soon, but some fans of the phone have been waiting for a more affordable version to follow and now HTC has delivered.


The HTC One Mini is now official and it looks like this scaled down version has kept a lot of great features as seen on the original. The aluminium unibody design still looks great and this Mini version has a plastic band round the edge and weighs in at 122g.


Android 4.2.2 is on board and HTC features such as BoomSound and Blinkfeed have been retained, but of course some specifications have had to be reduced or lost to make the phone more affordable. The HTC One Mini doesn’t have a NFC chip and the screen has been downsized to 4.3-inches which some will find a lot more comfortable to hold and use one handed. The processor is a dual-core chip rather than the quad-core seen on the original but it still manages to deliver plenty of performance and power for running HTC Sense 5.0.


The 4-megapixel Ultrapixel camera on board includes the HTC Zoe functionality for enhanced photo effects and video editing which is also seen on the original HTC One.


The HTC One Mini has 1GB RAM and only 16GB of on board memory which may be a little disappointing for some but won’t cause issues for most people and you still get 4G connectivity for superfast browsing. Overall HTC have retained a large amount of what made the original HTC One special with the new HTC One Mini so it will be a hit with anyone wanting to spend a little less on a top phone.


There has been no word on exactly when we can expect the phone to be available in UK stores so keep watching for more news.
