As we heading towards new releases, HTC related rumors are getting stronger. It’s expected this smartphone manufacturer to come up with at least two new versions of its HTC One device. HTC One version equipped with the new Snapdragon 800 by Qualcomm is expected to be introduced later this year while HTC One Mini it’s expected to come out few weeks from now. Yesterday, we saw a blog post on HTC’s official blog site indicating its HTC One Mini through references to Trinidad Moruga chili pepper, Spud Webb, Donatalla Versace and Game of Thrones. There hasn’t been anything official yet but there has to be something in the background of this leaked picture. For that occasion, we chose to make a small round up of all the HTC One Mini related rumors before it officially comes out.
Last month, we saw a leaked picture of HTC One and another device with same design but smaller. The report said that HTC One Mini might be on its way and this was the first stronger rumor that we saw about this smaller smartphone version. There weren’t any further details about this photo only that this device will feature a 4.3-inch LCD screen with shorter, lighter and thinner chassis. From the picture, we saw that its chassis will be made of aluminum like its bigger brother. Other speculations covered that the screen will have a 720p resolution running on Android 4.2 JB OS and it will have dual-core processor. This means that we could expect it to be cheaper than the normal HTC One version.
Forte.delfi.ee has posted few pictures showing the new HTC Mini device. These pictures were little bit more specific than the previously mentioned leaked images. From what we could have seen from the pictures, this HTC Mini will have a 4.3-inch 720p LCD display, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage without any additional microSD slot for upgrading it. The camera will remain the same as its bigger version.
AndroidNext has reported that this device will include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage capacity.
HTC reported that they will continue using metal for its future devices and from there we concluded that if HTC One Mini became real it will be made of metal for sure. This image showed on HTC’s blog post only instigated all the rumors and increase the possibility for this new HTC One Mini. It will be really great to see this company follow Samsung’s strategy for making its device available to all people.
These are the most common rumors that we heard for the past period of time. If you need to know more about the blog picture, check out our previous post related to this.
