HTC officially announced the HTC One Mini today, after weeks and weeks of rumours. HTC teased the device yesterday on their Facebook and Twitter pages. Like the name suggests, it’s smaller than the HTC One and has mid-range specifications, but HTC says that is because they want to keep the cost down and make it available worldwide.
The device has a 4.3-inch display with a 720p resolution, instead of the 4.7-inch 1080p display found on the One. It also packs a Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM, instead of the Snapdragon 600 processor and 2GB RAM found in the One. It has the same aluminium unibody design as the One and will launch in Silver and Black.
It has the same $-Ultrapixel camera found on the One and also comes with Zoe shooting and highlight reeels, 1080p video recording and amazing low-light performance. The Mini has 16GB of onboard storage, a microSIM card slot, Android 4.2.2, HTC BlinkFeed, BoomSound speakers, a 1,800mAh battery and a 1.6-megapixel front facing camera.
HTC said that the HTC One Mini will launch in select markets in August, then it will roll out worldwide in September.
