HTC One mini specs confirmed by GFX Bench
With the HTC One mini less than a month away from an expected launch in Europe, the phone's appearance on the GFX Benchmark site gives us the latest look at the specs on the device. A dual-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 was spotted by GFX along with the Adreno 305 GPU.  The site also confirmed the 720 x 1280 resolution that will be on the speculated 4.3 inch display. That works out to a luscious 342ppi pixel density. The test reveals that Android 4.2.2 will be installed out of the box.

Some specs that were not displayed by GFX include the 2GB of RAM onboard the model and the 16GB of native storage expected on the phone. On back will be an UltraPixel camera and BeatsAudio is included. The BoomSound front facing stereo speakers remain part of the design. A 1700mAh battery will be powering the unit, which traditionally sounds a bit light despite the "mini" title of the phone.

While the HTC One mini is rumored to be launching August 3rd from German carrier O2, in the U.S. the phone is supposedly coming to AT&T and T-Mobile, although no dates have been mentioned for a stateside launch.


Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

because HTC is still living in their dream world where they know every consumer doesn't give a damn about battery life if the phone is pretty.
somebody please splash cold water on HTC so they can go back to the real world. =D

Probably not. The original One X had a 4.7 inch screen with only a 1800mah battery. I always assumed it would have crappy battery performance (so did most others like yourself), but in reality it wasn't the case. See the review on anandtech for proof:

http://www.anandtech.com/show/6914/samsung-galaxy-s-4-review/2

Specifically:

http://images.anandtech.com/graphs/graph6914/54313.png

And it's not a fluke measurement, it's come up that way many times in the past. Also noted by android central's phil:

"Actually, forget our usual review-speak. Battery life on the AT&T One X/One XL is nothing short of incredible."

All in all, I get sick of all those falsely perpetuated bulls**t that goes around. Watch for reviews, THEN talk your s**t.

So sorry but you proof is out of date. SGS4 was updated last month improved battery lifetime.

Also he choose web browsing which the S4 is disadvantage because AMOLED screen are less efficient at producing white (the main color of most website).
Also the S4 beats the HTC One X in all tests after the update, here's a link.

now that we have compared the HTC One X to the gs4, let's take a look at the difference between the new HTC One and the Gs2

I was replying to erikiksaz's comment, which he compares the HTC One X to the S4, I know that its stupid comparing them as the S4 is about a year newer.

I think the battery is okay because it runs only a dual core processor. However, the screen might drain it faster than usual.

Darn...I was really hoping it would at least have a better battery than rumoured, matching the HTC First at least.

Does HTC first has 2gb ram?

No. Nor does it have Beats audio nor Ultrapixel tech in it's 5MP camera.

But I really hope the HTC One Mini can last longer than the similar spec-ed Xperia V, which's battery life I've heard is unacceptably pathetic.

1. Beats Audio is just an ordinary equalizer
2. Ultrapixel is nothing special

Whether or not HTC decides to include these 'special' features with other phones, you won't really gonna miss it

I know. But I thought I should list them as some people think them important.

To be honest Beats Audio stopped being an equalizer as it makes a huge difference on the One's speakers, and the Ultrapixels are unmatched in low light by any phone that anyone has tried to compare with mine. Just because you don't like the features doesn't mean other people don't enjoy them. But hating on everything seems your main hobby.

Care to explain how BEATS works from a hardware perspective?

Ultrapixels are unmatched in low light? Hell yeah, but it SUCKS at capturing details which is very essential in cropping lol

"Ultrapixels are unmatched in low light? Hell yeah"

Just stop right there. I rarely if ever take pictures outdoors, so the ultrapixel fits me better than your S4/iphone5 cameras.

As for capturing details, I don't know what you're talking about. Mine captures details just fine. Don't blame a camera's performance on operator error.

As for beats, it is an equalizer, but it's an equalizer that works fairly well because it's built straight into the system. When I'm listening through my upgraded car speakers, beats get turned off. But, if I'm in a car with stock paper cone speakers, it's easy for me to jump into the settings to enable it, then to jump right back into the app. No messing with third party apps makes things easy. No configuration. Just on or off.

lol... a similar ''effect'' can be obtained thru N7 player (which is quite better because it has SRS and bass boost)

If I want to shoot at low-light, my full frame camera is my primary tool, because it does things 1000X BETTER than the ONE

Don't fool yourself, BEATS and Ultrapixel are nothin' but gimmicksx

How much is Samsung paying you? The HTC one has a built-in amp with beat. You are a useless troll

beats audio is only audio profile and for better experience you are recommended to buy beats products -HTC.com

i did not knew beats audio before htc one x was released.

beats is sort of a advertisement on back cover of htc phones htc isn't the one who pays beats to , but beats pay htc to advertise their stuff

1700mAh battery? That's disappointing, HTC should have put at least 2000mAh on it.

Agreed.

very very true. my gs2 has 1650mah so i guess this isn't much of an upgrade as battery is on my top 3 priorities in buying phones nowadays.

Battery will be main dissadvantage for this phone...S4 mini has better battery and lower res screen which will provide more juice a better battery life...

Again XSP over-shadows this device hands down!
And i bet the price will be more expensive.

The galaxy s2 lasted fine and the battery was smaller than that (had a 4.3" screen). Sure thw processor will be more efficient on this too

I don't think your comparison is an apt one.
The HTC One Mini has double the pixels to supply power to and process a picture for. The display also isn't AMOLED Plus.

The battery on the S2 was just a shade smaller, 1650 mA, and it had the distinct advantage of being removable. The S4 mini had a 1900 mA battery with a lower res screen and still the perk of it being removable.

In this size category, i think S4 mini is the best buy. I know some phones have some specs better, but overall S4 mini is a king in a midrange category. HTC ONE mini is great, but neiter is mini, neither is going to be priced as a midrange phone...

Moto X would like to disagree. It has a 4.3" 720p display, dual core Snapdragon S4 Pro with Adreno 320, and will have Google's pricing, which is very low off contract, much less than the $500 of the GS4 mini.
