HTC One Mini Confirmed and Pictured

The HTC One Mini has had multiple image and information leaks in the past weeks, so we are very happy to announce that the phone is finally official. In addition to specifications and images of the black version, we have had a confirmation of a Q3 launch. Retailers are starting to get their pre-released models, so naturally one company had to spill the beans (to our delight). One of the most popular rumors was that the phone would come with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie; however, that will have to wait for a later update, as the One Mini will come with Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2.


The device will have a very bright 4.3 inch screen with a pixel density of 342 ppi, translating into an HD screen (1280 x 720 resolution). The previously predicted dual core 1.4 GHz processor is not certain yet, but the phone is described as being very fast, along with the confirmed 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. While the specifications are mostly what we predicted, the released images are actually more interesting.


The form factor is almost identical to the One (big surprise there), and that logo on the back also confirms the presence of the Beats audio software in the Sense UI. The camera also looks similar to the bigger phone and is claimed to make "good photos," which in all honesty is so incredibly subjective that it reveals nothing at all. We will keep you posted on new developments.

    I think a certain marketing team is missing the meaning of "mini". That phone would be huge by 2011 standard.

    Well, i will give them that naming it HTC One Half-an-Inch Smaller wouldn't roll off the tongue as good as HTC One Mini, but still...

    I think the "Mini" moniker has just as much to do with the reduced specs as it does the phone's physical dimensions.

    "the phone is described as being very fast"

    Well, duh. What else would they say?

    mini must have been lost in translation because that is the same size as the original. HTC needs to watch some Austin Powers movies. That will help them grasp the concept of mini.

    Well, what should they have called it, the "HTC One Budget"?
