Leaked Images Show Off HTC's Minuature 'One' Smartphone

Samsung produced its first 'mini' handset with the Galaxy S3 and soon after the Galaxy S4 was launched, rumors started swirling about an S4 mini. However, it seems Samsung isn't the only smartphone maker keen to produce lower-spec versions of its flagship handsets.


Rumors about HTC working on a smaller version of the HTC One (pictured above) back in early May. Codenamed M4, the device was said to share a similar aesthetic to the One and boast a 4.3-inch display along with 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage and a 4-megapixel camera. Comparatively, the HTC One boasts a 4.7-inch screen, 2GB of RAM, up to 64GB of storage, and a 4-megapixel camera. Not too far off each other, eh?

This week, Estonian site forte.delfi.ee obtained photos of the rumored device, which really does bear a startling resemblance to the HTC One. At first glance, it's hard to tell the two apart. Check it out:


Though we've heard nothing from HTC on the matter, Forte.defli.ee is saying we can look forward to an August release date and a price of around €400 (just shy of $525). For more photos, hit up Forte.defli.ee.

    Would like to know battery specs and whether the 16GB is the only storage option. Other than that, is sounds better than SGS4 Mini, which was crippled a bit too much IMO (compared to the regular SGS4).

    The HTC One was what I was going to get... But having no SD card killed the deal so I got an S4... The new Active version coming out is attractive though and now the mini's are abound. But is this 'one going to also have no extended memory? I totally didn't understand that move. All of my previous EVOs had SD slots, but not the One... So I went to the Galaxy... It's a swell unit but HTC could have easily had my business again. I just have too many of my videos on my 64G uSD cards that I keep around. All for what, $0.02 per unit for the added slot in bulk? Maybe a dime?
