The HTC One mini is now available for on Vodafone UK. Arriving just ahead of Vodafone's 4G LTE launch, the device was announced in mid-July and is little brother to the hugely popular HTC One.
The HTC One mini shares the same aesthetic as the full-sized HTC One but is slightly smaller and packs less of a punch as far as specs are concerned. It boasts a 4.3-inch display 720p (341ppi), a 1.4 GHz dual-core CPU, Adreno 305 graphics, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and a 1,800 mAh Li-Polymer battery (non-removable). This is compared to the HTC One's 4.7-inch 1080p (468ppi) display, a quad-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of storage (like the Nexus 4, there's no option for expansion via microSD), an NFC, and a 2,300 mAh battery. Both phones feature a 4-megapixel camera, LTE, and version five of HTC's Sense UI.
Crave reports Vodafone will be offering the HTC One mini on contract from £34 per month if you're planning to go 4G LTE. If you live outside of London (the only area Vodafone's 4G will cover at launch). If you're with either EE or O2, you're not out of luck. Both declared their intention to carry the HTC One mini in July and EE's LTE network has been up and running for nearly a year, while O2 plans to launch the same day as Vodafone (August 29) in Leeds, London, and Bradford. If you're the kind of guy or gal that doesn't like to be tied down, you can go contract-free for £379.
