It’s been over two months since we saw the first leaked render of the HTC One mini, but that doesn’t mean we know everything about the device. New images of a black HTC One mini have surfaced, revealing a few subtle design elements that differ from the original HTC One. The new images of the HTC One mini show that the device will feature two separate volume buttons on the right side instead of the large, single-button setup that’s been used on the HTC One and Droid DNA. On the back of the device, the angle of the image shows a recessed camera lens and flash. This design change may have been made to protect the fragile plastic lens cover.
The source of the images has confirmed that the HTC One mini is running on Android 4.2.2 with a dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage with a 4.3-inch 720p display (342 ppi). The HTC One mini is expected to hit the market in the third quarter, but it’s still unknown if the device will be picked up by the four major service providers here in the US.
How do you think the HTC One mini stacks up against the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and dozens of other Android phones in the mid-range segment?
