One of the worst kept secrets in all of tech land, a new array of images and claimed specs for the heavily rumoured HTC One Mini have started doing the rounds.
Hitting the web ahead of the phone’s expected unveiling in the coming weeks, the latest HTC One Mini pictures show a phone which looks markedly similar to the 4.7-inch flagship HTC One, just scaled down to a more pocketable 4.3-inch form factor.
An expected rival to the Mini model of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the as yet unconfirmed HTC One Mini has been the thing of much rumour and speculation for a number of weeks, with the latest leaks claiming to confirm the handset’s full array of innards.
While a 4.3-inch 1280 x 720p HD display will see the mid-market spinoff touchdown with a higher resolution display to that of its S4 Mini branded rival, its mooted 1.4GHz dual-core CPU is down on the Samsung’s 1.7GHz dual-core offering.
With a HTC One Mini release date rumoured for August, it has been suggested that the phone will run Google’s latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean direct from the box. Although the full sized model launched with Android 4.1 in tow, a HTC One Android 4.2.2 update was recently rolled out to UK based users.
Maintaining the same 4-UltraPixel rear-mounted camera and BoomSound stereo speakers as its iPhone 5 rivalling sibling, the HTC One Mini specs sheet has been rumoured to be rounded off by a 1.6-megapixel forward-facing snapper and 1GB of RAM.
With no word having yet surfaced on potential HTC One Mini pricing, the phone’s battery size is also still up in the air.
