A leak (Estonian) released by Estonian site forte.delfi.ee reveals several photos and details of a new device from HTC, which is effectively a mini version of HTC’s flagship handset, the HTC One. The official name of the device is yet unknown, but it has been referred to by sources as the HTC One mini, and the HTC M4.
According to this new information, the handset will sport a slightly smaller display than the original, measuring in at 4.3-inches. The screen itself isn’t much to get excited about with its 720p resolution, but as a mid-range offering, it is more respectable than many alternatives.
The HTC One mini reportedly has a dual-core processor, although the make and model are yet unconfirmed. It also will be equipped with 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a 4-megapixel camera.
The camera utilizes the same UltraPixel technology as the HTC One, which is said to greatly enhance the quality of the photos produced. UltraPixel cameras sacrifice raw pixel quantity for fewer, larger pixels. This increases the amount of light that passes through the sensor, and produces higher quality images in low light and high-speed photography because of reduced blur and faster shutter speeds.
According to the leak, the HTC One mini should arrive in August, but, as always, take leaked release dates as more of an approximation than an opportunity to mark your calendar. It's expected to retail for around €400 (about $520).
