No official news has been released regarding the HTC One Mini coming to the US, but it seems AT&T are keen to get the mid-range Android device on their service before any other carrier snaps it up.
This recent FCC filing shows the HTC One Mini with HSPA+ and LTE for AT&T and if that is not proof enough, we have already seen previews and leaked renders of the AT&T HTC One Mini.
While this does show the handset will be coming, it doesn’t give us a date. Some have said August, others September. It has taken Verizon three months to get the HTC One to the US and it still isn’t on their service, so we wonder if it could take AT&T a few months to get the HTC One Mini.
We wonder if this will be an exclusive AT&T purchase, we have not heard about Verizon, Sprint or T-Mobile trying to get the HTC One Mini into the US and it seems AT&T is the only one with the leaks, rumours and FCC filing.
The HTC One Mini packs the same design as the HTC One, but in a smaller package. It comes with a 4.3-inch 720p display, 1.4GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 1800mAh battery and will run Android 4.2.2.
If it comes to AT&T, we expect it to be $99 on a two-year contract, like most mid-range devices.
