Taiwan based global mobile making company HTC recently announced the mega launch of its latest smartphone HTC One Mini. It is basically a compact and smaller version of the company’s current flagship smartphone HTC One.
The HTC One mini adopts most of the features from its predecessor HTC One, and it is currently one of featured products of the company. It sports exactly the same design as of the bigger version of the phone. However, its front and side’s features polycarbonate/ plastic while the back of it is made of aluminum. On the other hand HTC One is completely made from aluminum except a few inserts and the feature glass display.
The HTC One mini has got the same BoomSound speakers, but these speakers are obviously smaller than the ones which the HTC One is having. The mini version of the smartphone is also stripped of chamfered edges just like the elder siblings of it.
The phone carries a 4.3-inch long S-LCD3 display, which can offer screen resolution power of 720*1280 pixels with decent pixel density of 341ppi. It is powered by a balanced 1.4 GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor. It sports 1GB of RAM and a huge 16GB of internal memory, but sadly it can’t be further expanded as currently it doesn’t support any external microSD cards.

The HTC One mini is running on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system with HTC's very own Sense 5 UI layer at the top. One of the best parts of this latest smartphone is that it offers HTC BlinkFeed, which is basically a very useful feature as it delivers regular social updates, photos and breaking news directly to the main home screen of the phone to help the owner to stay updated all the time.
The smartphone is also featuring the exact same Ultra Pixel camera module that the HTC One carries. Eventually it features a 4-megapixel rear camera and a 1.6-megapixel front for video calling and other advantages. It is backed by an 1800mAh battery, which is actually non-removable. It also sports some cool things like Video Highlights imaging and HTC Zoe.
Currently the HTC One Mini will be available in two different color options which are Stealth Black and Glacial Silver. From August it will be start appearing in several key markets, but the global role out procedure will be gearing up from September onwards.
[P.S: We don’t know yet by when it will be available in Indian market or what will be its price at the time of launch.]
