HTC One mini: new leak reveals more photos, specs

HTC One Mini

German-based blog AndroidNext.de got our week started off right with more information on the HTC One mini. This latest leak brings more photos of the device as well as meaty info about the device’s specs. Since we’ve already seen plenty of photos, let’s dig right into the details. The HTC One Mini will come with a 4.3-inch 1280 x 720 display, a Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage, 4MP Ultrapixel camera, 1.6MP front-facing camera and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with HTC’s Sense 5 software.

As you can see, the design is similar to that of its big brother, the HTC One. But what’s really interesting is that the rumored specs and size of the device indicate that it will be a replacement for last year’s HTC One S. HTC recently announced that it would not update the One S to Android 4.2, supposedly due issues with the phone’s hardware. This phone features very similar hardware, however, and it did receive the Jelly Bean. The only thing that we can attribute this to is the new processor and GPU combo that the One Mini comes with. If you want to see a couple more pictures of the device and a few screenshots, check out the gallery below.

Do these rumored specs do anything for you?

    720p on a 4,3″ sounds brilliant! I would have liked it to be a “non high class with uppered specs” though. I think of 2GB RAM, expandable storage or at least 32GB-Option. THe Processor is not much of care for me. Youjust barely see nice specs in lower class models. They range from somewhere between old 2011 to early 2012 flagship-models. Whats up with that? If it wasnt for Sense 5, 720p and the ultra pixel, theres nothing new to this really.
    When do we see inventions coming to mid-class devices? The price just isnt fair for old specs!

    A replacement for the One S eh? Well I guess they are also trying to unify the One Brand.. And that’s okay.. Having a brand.. An awesome brand that people can identify you with isn’t a bad thing.. The One S still should have gotten the support though… Regardless of the matter.. Because you don’t wanna be known for broken promises and lack of support but hey guess what guys we decided instead to give you something better to make up for it all… No.. Don’t become known for that HTC.. You are better than that..

      All you really get from 4.2 over 4.1 on a sense phone is lockscreen widgets and quick toggles TBH.. Oh and maybe a new version of sense (could come without android version update.)

      HTC Sense , Custom Camera, Custom skin, most apps are custom, so the features in 4.2.2 besides, Lockscreen widgets, quick toggles and maybe multi-user (did htc one update get that?) don’t matter much.

        Yeah true… But you get where I’m getting at.. Lol

    If this is $250 off contract and has an unlocked (unlockable) bootloader, that would make this a great phone for people who don’t want a hugemongous phone! Sadly, we all pretty much know that won’t happen. :-(

      Sadly.. Lol

    And I’m not knocking this HTC One mini.. Buts it’s like adding further insult to injury in a way to those who have the One S and we’re told they would be getting that update…
