HTC One Mini specs leak alongside new images

first_imgPhotos of the HTC One Mini popped up just last week. Now there’s a new image to go along with some hardware specifications for HTC’s upcoming 4.3-inch phone.An Engadget tipster sent in the side-by-side photo of the HTC One Mini next to its big brother. The Mini is the spitting image of the HTC One, from the front-facing stereo speaker grills to the cutouts for its camera and sensors.While it looks the same, the device itself is quite different. There’s no quad-core Krait processor under the hood here. HTC reportedly has scaled back the One Mini to a much more humble 1.4GHz dual-core chip, likely the same Qualcomm MSM8930 found in the HTC First.In fact, there’s a good chance that the One Mini is the First with a snazzier chassis. The plastic trim around the Mini’s aluminum front provides a hint that this isn’t as high-end a phone as the HTC One while simultaneously stating that it’s a step above the First.There’s a good chance its 4.3-inch display is the same 720×1280 panel found on the First.Apart from its good looks, the Mini shares a few key features with the HTC One. It still runs the latest HTC Sense (atop Android 4.2.2) and Beats Audio branding on the phone’s back means Dre’s sound processing tech will keep the bass thumping.Another thing the Mini shares with the One is its rear shooter — thought to be of the UltraPixel variety. HTC’s slick Zoe Share photo tech is included, too, allowing One Mini users to capture a 4.1MP image and three seconds of 1080P video simultaneously.There are still plenty of blanks to be filled in (like pricing and carrier availability), but additional leaks will no doubt answer any questions we have. Unless, of course, HTC decides to get official before someone has a chance to let the cat out of the bag.last_img
