The specifications of the HTC One Mini have been spotted at the GFX Benchmark website by the folks at Techtastic. According to the website, the upcoming smartphone will feature a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with a clock speed of 1.4GHz working with an Adreno 305 GPU. Its display will measure 4.3 inches, and will have a resolution of 720 x 1280 as well as a pixel density of 342 ppi.
It had been earlier rumored that the smartphone will come with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage capacity. The smartphone will also pack Android 4.2.2 out of the box with the version of HTC Sense UI that is available on the HTC One.
The smartphone is also expected to have a similar appearance with the HTC One. Instead of having an aluminum chassis, however, it will be protected in plastic. Front-facing BoomSound stereo speakers will be onboard, as well. Rumors also suggest that a 4 MP UltraPixel camera will be offered, although it will not have the Optical Image Stabilization feature that is found on the HTC Butterfly S. As for its battery, the handset will allegedly have a 1700mAh battery. Such rumors are consistent with other lists that have surfaced earlier. The external features likewise do not appear to conflict with the alleged photos of the smartphone that have been published last month.
It won’t be too long until we find out if these leaked specifications are accurate or not, as the mini version of the HTC One will likely be revealed in a few weeks’ time. Digitimes earlier reported that the smartphone will be released during the third quarter of the year. Later, the smartphone was rumored to be slated for an August 3 launch in Germany. The latest information, however, points to an even earlier release date, purportedly scheduled sometime at the end of this month.
