Specifications for what could be the HTC One Mini leaked onto the internet recently.
The information surfaced on @evleaks as a device codenamed the M4, and another report from PhoneArena affirmed that this leak was legitimate. The device is expected to look identical to current version. It will also be used to target customers who are in the market for something smaller and cheaper than some of the current handsets being offered by various smartphone makers.
Rumored specifications for the M4 include a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, a 4.3-inch display with 720p resolution, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 1.6-megapixel front camera, 1700mAh battery, and Android 4.1, JellyBean.
Unwired View published a report a few weeks back that featured slightly different specs for the HTC One Mini and also listed the device under the codename G2.
This version has less impressive specs and includes a 1.0GHz ARM Cortex processor, a 3.5-inch HVGA display, 512MB RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a 5-megapixel rear camera, 1400mAh battery and Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.
The HTC One is the company's new flagship device and was launched in the U.S. towards the end of last month.
The smartphone features an all-metal unibody. It also comes with a Snapdragon 1.7GHz processor, LTE, NFC, 1080 x 1920 display and full 1080p video recording. The device can be purchased through various retailers including Best Buy, Radio Shack, Walmart, Target, Amazon.com, Costo, Car Toys, and Sam's Club.
The HTC One is currently available through various U.S. carriers. The smartphone on AT&T will cost $199.99 with a new 2-year contract.
There are several different plans for purchasing the HTC One on T-Mobile. The first will run the buyer a flat fee of $579.99. The second plan requires a $99.99 down payment up front followed by $20 every month for 24 months. The total price turns out to be the same with either plan.
