We have been hearing that HTC is developing a mini version of HTC One. First, the device is actually labeled as the HTC One mini. Next up, the smartphone will come with a display resolution of 720×1280 pixels. The file also comes with a reference to the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system which will be an upgrade from Android 4.1 on the HTC One. The UAProf also shows Audio/ Video Remote Control for the device which hints at the Infrared remote capabilities previously seen on HTC One. Other than that, the UAProf file does not reveal anything worthwhile.
Previous rumours state that the device will come with a 1.4GHz dual-core processor alongside 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The phone is also said to sport a 1,700 mAh battery and Beats Audio support. There has been news stating that the device will also come with an Ultrapixel camera like its big brother, but nothing has been confirmed as of now. The smartphone is expected to run HTC’s Sense 5 UI.
With a wide variety of leaks already out in the open, analysts predict a launch for the mid-range version of the HTC One sometime in the third quarter. Once released, the smartphone will be competing with devices having similar specifications such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini. If the speculated specifications for Google’s Moto X phone are indeed true, then Motorola’s upcoming device could be a competitor as well.
