There have been a lot of talk about this in recent times, but now, HTC has started to officially tease the HTC One mini with the above picture on twitter, indicating a launch on July 19th, i.e tomorrow. The official twitter account of HTC UK tweeted this earlier today.
Personally speaking, the 4.7″ HTC One is kind of an ideal size and feels awesome to hold in hand. But there are many who still feel 4-inch as the right size for the phones. HTC One mini though, is supposed to be a 4.3″ 720p screen, running the latest Android 4.2 OS (and Sense 5.0) which is being rolled out for HTC One currently. Other possible specs include a dual-core 1.4GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM and possibly 16GB of internal storage. The camera is expected to be the same 4MP ‘ultra-pixel’ just like the original HTC One. With the industrial build just like the HTC One, microSD slot is expected to be absent on the One mini as well.
The twitter tease follows an official blog post published on Monday, which carried an infographic titled “Little Things That Pack a Big Punch”. Though the infographic lacks direct reference to One mini, it was clear what HTC was hinting at.
A little earlier today, Android Police posted the leaked pictures of the AT&T version of HTC One mini, which shows that the new device looking exactly same as the original HTC One, but just smaller. The curves, the colors, the bands, the speaker grills and the design elements, everything look the same.
HTC One mini has been in public domain for months now, and was earlier known as the HTC M4. The rumors gained pace ever since Samsung announced the Galaxy S4 mini back in May this year.
It’s almost certain that the HTC One mini is coming to the UK tomorrow, but we need to wait for the official details. Now, start jotting your wish list. A Google edition HTC One mini should top the list we guess!
