With the trend of smartphones getting bigger and bigger many people have wanted much smaller but powerful devices, and with the One mini HTC may be on to a winner. The device has a 4.3-inch HD 720P display (321 PPI) which is a downgrade from the One's 1080p display, but on a smaller device we would imagine this really doesn't make that much of a difference. Inside is a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, and a 1800 mAh battery, again all of these are downgrades, but HTC promises the same experience as its big brother.
The camera is still HTC's UltraPixel which captures up to 3x more light in dark places. It has a smart flash, the ability to record 1080p full HD video with HDR, and boasts a F2.0 aperture and 28mm lens, the thing you'll lose though is image stabilisation. The front camera is a 1.6 megapixel with BSI sensor that has the ability to record 720p video.
The One mini still has HTC's BoomSound technology which incorporates Beats Audio and dual front stereo speaks with built in amplifiers. You'll get 16GB of storage, and Android Jelly Bean with HTC Sense with BlinkFeed.
HTC says they aim to roll out the One mini starting in August. EE, Vodafone, O2 have confirmed that they be selling the device, as well as Mobilefun who will sell it for £379.99 SIM-free. Germany and the UK will be the first in Europe to get the device and it will be available in two colours at launch, black and silver.
