The HTC One and Play Editions are perhaps the favorite devices of any smartphone aficionado, but HTC decided a smaller version could have more “pep”, to go along with it. All the specs of the One mini have stayed the same from the original model: a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor at 1.7GHz, LTE, the UltraPixel camera, BoomSound, Beats Audio integration, a 1.6MP front-facing camera, and support for Android. The only two things that have changed are the smaller, 4.3-inch touchscreen, an 1,800 mAh battery, and the lack of an IR blaster.
A worldwide launch is planned sometimes this August worldwide, with availability in the United States being announced during the same time frame. Press release, after the break.
