The upcoming HTC One Mini smartphone has been spotted yet again, this time on a Chinese device certification site known as TENAA. Known as the HTC 601e, this WCDMA smartphone could be heading towards prominent Chinese carriers, although we don’t see any branding on the device. It’s pretty certain now that a device called the HTC One Mini does exist, and we’ve even speculated a late July/early August release for the smartphone in some parts of the world.
The only visible change we see here from the original HTC One is the placement of the camera flash and the new volume buttons. Apart from that, it’s hard to tell the difference between the One and the One Mini.
HTC accidentally published a blog post about the One Mini earlier this week only to get it removed later. The post spoke of how little things can make a big difference, which was a clear reference to the One Mini. From what we know so far, the smartphone promises to be a pocket rocket with a 4.3 inch HD display, a 1.4 GHz dual core processor, possibly an Ultrapixel 4MP camera along with Android 4.2 and Sense 5.
