The phone is equipped with a 4.3 inch Super LCD 2 display with resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a pixel density of 341ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU with the Adreno 305 GPU handling the graphics. There is 1GB of RAM on board. The HTC One mini comes with 16GB of native storage, of which 11GB can be used by the phone's owner. An UltraPixel camera is on the back with a backside illuminated sensor that allows the camera to catch 300% more light. The camera on back also captures video in 1080 x 1920 resolution. The 1.6MP front-facing camera allows you to snap selfies and engage in video chat. An 1800mAh battery powers the device, which will run Android 4.2.2 at launch. Thanks to the Sense UI that runs on top of Android, the HTC One mini will offer the BlinkFeed social network feed that lets you view social and news feeds from all of your favorite sources. And the HTC BoomSound stereo speakers are right there on the front of your phone.
Now that the HTC One mini is ready to launch, perhaps we will hear some information from the Taiwan based manufacturer about the HTC One Max which is a larger-sized version of the Android flagship model. HTC CMO Ben Ho told a Taiwan publication last week that HTC will launch a variant of the HTC One in the fourth quarter. Since the HTC One mini will launch in the third quarter, that means that Ho can only be talking about the HTC One Max.
