HTC One mini specs confirmed by GFX Bench

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.

For people who talk about the number pixel efforting battery life, you guys don't know how LCD works. The number of pixel does not the battery as much as the amount of backlight.

Oh, ok. Nice to know.

That is true, but they both are directly related. In order to have the same amount of light to shine through a display with more condensed pixels, you need a brighter backlight. If you have a backlight outputting the same brightness, it would look brighter on a lower resolution screen than it would be a higher resolution screen, so pixel density and battery life are related on LCD displays.

IPhone 5 is anything but high end. The screen is below 720, only has 1 GB of ram, the battery is like 1400 mah etc, it is a dual core clocked at 1.2 GHz. How the hell is that high end?! Only thing high end about the iPhone 5 is the GPU and even then it's not really compared to the Qualcomm 800 GPU and the exynos octa tablet version of the same GPU. Any mid range android running IOS 6 will outperform the iPhone 5 handily except maybe in games. I think the HTC fantardism from the likes of can you see light is rubbing off on you guys.... These phones are not midrange. Pound for pound they are just as high end when you scale them. If you put a Qualcomm 600 in a smaller phone with a smaller battery what do you think will happen? It will have s**t battery life and outperform the flagship because it doesn't have to push a 1080 p screen. They HAVE TO scale down the specs to match the screen and smaller battery, but that doesn't make them mid range. Those are the best specs you are going to get for a 4.3 inch 720 screen and a 1700 may battery. You want a 2100mah battery? Get a bigger phone because smaller phones don't need it. Especially this one since it already is almost as big as the HTC One. If they add a bigger battery it would be effectively the same size as the HTC One if it not already is.

"I think the HTC fantardism from the likes of can you see light is rubbing off on you guys...." Yes, because my opinion is mind controlling, right? You should grow up, and stop taking comments about phones seriously and maybe consider getting a life.

Yet again another big let down by HTC! Why not: S600 at 1.9Ghz 1080p 469ppi Adreno 320 Apple iP5 has much better specs than this midrange. For a 4inch iP5 why not provide the same specs on the One on the Mini? Learn from Apple HTC! iP5 Ftw™ HTC mini down south™

I can't understand you really, do you have some kind of mental disorder? Why are you comparing a midrange against a high end phone?

What I'm trying to say is this was meant to substitute the One with the same specs on the Mini. There are many consumers who don't like and hate big phones: anything above 4.3inch. If Apple can make a great high end device on a 4inch why can't other OEMS? ®

Because this is mid range... That's why. This has twice as much RAM and a higher density display than the iPhone 5, I would much rather have this than any iPhone.

This.would have been my dream. Phone.. but the battery is too small

The HTC One has surprised me with how good the battery life is and I came with from the Note 2. I would reserve judgement until the device has spent some time in the field. If the battery does last though this phone would be better than the iPhone lol.

Just watching tennis at espn3 yesterday using my hTc One, it consume 40-46 % of battery for lest than an hour, but in my gnote 2, it consume 30% for around 2 hours with the same wifi. That's why replaceable battery is important, atleast for me!!!

Besides the snapdragon 400 might help with being power efficient...... so some of you should wait for reviews before drifting this phone off

This sounds like a glorified version of the HTC Amaze/HTC Ruby

I'm still getting it I'm not gonna let one thing stop me from getting this close to perfection phone sorry I've been waiting for a long time to get a phone this size with specs like this from HTC or Sony...........SOLD!

Well, i do not know what have u been waiting for, but this phone is not that small, it a slighly smaller than ONE, and i would say same size as S3, S4 but with lower specs. Its better to go for ONE if u want HTC. I dont get it, with 4,3'' screen, it is soooo big. If they managed to make it as big as S4 mini, it would be top choice, but now it is just a good phone.

From this image, it seems roughly 63 mm wide.(Measured using Photoshop and math) That's pretty decent in my books.http://androidandme.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/htc-one-mini-side-by-side.jpg

on this pic it looks unnaturaly narrow according to its height...just like ip5....

48. Genersis

Posts: 219; Member since: May 29, 2013

You are right. Other pics of wider HTC One Mini's next to HTC One's suggest a size of 65mm, which is the size HTC normally go with for midrange devices.(HTC First and HTC One S) I wonder if the thinner one is an earlier prototype...or maybe the wider ones are? Is pretty odd...

I wouldn't jump on the One mini so fast. The Moto X is very close to release, and it has a similar screen size, 720p 4.3-4.5" with minimal bezel, but the Moto X will have a bigger battery and Adreno 320. It'll probably be really cheap off contract as well, and if you're on a CDMA carrier in the U.S both Sprint's and Verizon's versions of the Moto X have already passed through the FCC. Plus, really quick updates, which is expected for a pure Google device. Overall, I think the Moto X would be the best device. But if you really like Sense 5 and want those front speakers and metal body, go ahead on the One mini.

I'd agree with the Moto X being better...if it can keep it's size comparable to the One Mini, and does not use a pentile AMOLED screen. But that's just my opinion.

Well, the One mini doesn't look that much smaller than the One because of the speakers, so the Moto X would be smaller, especially considering that Motorola does know how to keep bezels slim (Razr M). I highly doubt it will be a full RGB AMOLED display. Samsung said that the highest pixel density a full RGB AMOLED display can have without damaging it is that of the Note II (265 ppi), and they can't stay under that on a 4.3" display without it having qHD resolution. I would much rather take a 720p 342 ppi Pentile display than a qHD 256 ppi RGB display.

stupid xperia sp is much better with 320 adreno

Xperia SP in not in a mini range since it is quite lareger than S4 mini! Software updates from SONY are bad, and this phone probably won't get KLP. And final, its not that much better afterall, less RAM, not removable battery, no infrared port, shitty front camera

29. phoenix985

Posts: 27; Member since: Jul 03, 2013

Not saying X SP is a bad phone, but surely it is not much better. S4 mini is more compact, has it own pros and might be a great choice for ppl who want small and powerfull phone.
