A newly leaked O2 Germany document is the first piece of evidence from a service provider confirming that the HTC One mini and HTC One Max are indeed real. The document lists a silver HTC One Max, and the HTC One mini is listed in both silver and black. The O2 document does not contain any details regarding the launch dates for the HTC One Max or HTC One mini, but multiple rumors suggest that the two phones will be available sometime during the third quarter.
HTC One Max (aka the HTC T6) is said to feature a 5.9-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel display with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.3 GHz, 3300 mAh battery and the same UltraPixel camera and BoomSound experience as the HTC One. An early sketch of the phone claimed the device would measure 140.4mm in length with the thickness of 9.4mm. HTC One mini is expected to run Android 4.2.2 with a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch 720p display, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage and an Ultrapixel camera capable of shooting HTC Zoes and capturing full HD video. Both the HTC One mini and HTC One Max are expected to feature the same zero-gap aluminum construction as the HTC One.
While the HTC One mini will be going head-to-head with the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini in the mid-range segment, the HTC One Max is poised to take on the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and other devices looking to bridge smartphone-tablet gap.
