HTC One Mini confirmed

The new HTC One Mini aims to brings many of the HTC One's core features to the mid-market in a smaller package

HTC has announced that the HTC One mini, a compact version of its flagship HTC One smartphone, will be available in “select markets” from August and rolled out globally from September.
The HTC One mini features a 4.3-inch HD screen, offering 341 pixels per inch, and is available in silver or black. Like the HTC One, it has an all-aluminium design, and uses the latest version of Android’s operating system with an HTC Sense skin.
Running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 dual-core 1.4GHz processor, it doesn’t pack quite the same punch as its older brother, but given that HTC will be positioning it more for the mid-market, this is no big surprise.
It includes many of the same features as the HTC One, including BoomSound stereo speakers, a BlinkFeed interface – which aims to integrate users’ news choices and social network feeds with the Android operating system – and Zoe video editing capabilities.
It also has a ‘ultrapixel’ camera that claims to capture significantly more light than its rivals and has five levels of flash automatically set by distance to subject. However, it lacks near-field communications (NFC) capabilities.
“The HTC One Mini is a logical extension of the HTC One aimed at consumers who can’t stretch to or don’t need the full high-end feature package of its sibling," said Ovum analyst Tony Cripps.
"Taking the key elements of the HTC One’s leading edge design to a broader market should see benefits to HTC in terms of operator acceptance and consumer uptake and the company’s top line.”
