The HTC One was launched earlier this year, and quickly became one of the most sought after smartphones on the market. The handset has gained a reputation as one of the most impressive devices available, and clocked up millions of sales.
The success of the HTC One has led to widespread speculation about the rumoured HTC One Mini in recent months. As its name suggests, the HTC One Mini is set to be a smaller, lower spec version of the flagship model, with a much more affordable price tag. Speculation about the phone’s features has been gathering pace in recent weeks, as we near its rumoured announcement.
The HTC One Mini is believed to boast a 4.3 inch 720p touchscreen, dual-core processor, and the same 4 Ultrapixel camera utilised by the HTC One, along with a similar, but smaller aluminium chassis. In recent weeks, there has also been plenty of news about when the device will hit the market, and its likely price tag.
Although HTC is yet to officially announce the device,
uSwitch has recently reported on new information regarding the European
availability of the HTC One Mini. The website has reported that new information
has revealed that O2 in Germany will be carrying the HTC One Mini from a 3rd of
August. Generally, new smartphone models are released across all major European
markets around the same time, so this could also point to the phone coming to
the UK at some point in the summer. Visit our website for more HTC One Mini news and rumours, along with the best offers on HTC One contracts.
Pricing is also set to be revealed, but it is thought that HTC will be keen to offer the device at a lower price tag than the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, which is likely to be the phone’s biggest rival. The Galaxy S4 Mini's price tag was recently revealed, and is much more expensive than many people had thought.
Obviously, the downgraded specifications of the HTC One Mini mean it is not the most advanced on the market. However, it still offers an impressive spec list and coupled with what is likely to be an affordable price tag, it certainly looks capable of rivalling majority of mid range competitors.
Further information about the features, pricing, availability and release date of the HTC One is likely to be revealed soon, so we will be sure to report back with the latest updates.
