HTC looks to expand on its flagship success with a cut down budget model
HTC Corp.'s (
1080p flagship "One"
smartphone is a hit,
moving 5 million units
in its first month on the market -- and
sales are still accelerating
. A thirsty HTC is ecstatic at the success, hoping to leverage it to put its
struggles of the last year and a half
behind it. Critical to that plan is regaining ground in the middle end -- and that's where the HTC One's "little brother" -- codenamed either the HTC One Mini or the HTC One M4, depending on who you ask -- comes in.
The rumored 4.3-inch, 720p (1280x720 pixel) handset
in the wild via pictures from an Estonian website,
. The site confirms the rumored scaled-down spec that previously leaked.
The phone offers 2 GB of DRAM, a dual-core ARM processor, and 16 GB of NAND flash storage. The camera is an UltraPixel design (as rumored) with a 4 megapixel resolution (a somewhat misleading number in that this is the same sensor as the full-size HTC One, which offers picture quality akin to most 13 MP cameras).
The handset will reportedly launch worldwide in August, exactly half a year after the launch of its full-size predecessor. The price in Europe for an unlocked handset reportedly will be around €400 ($523 USD) -- somewhat pricy, given that the "Senseless" HTC One is
available for $599 USD unlocked
from Google Inc.'s (
) Play Store.
HTC's rival Samsung Electronics Comp., Ltd. (
) recently announced its own "Mini" handset -- the Galaxy S IV Mini. Launch in late June, the device will feature a 4.3-inch qHD (960x540) screen, a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, 1.5 GB of DRAM, 8 GB of NAND flash, and an 8 megapixel rear-shooting camera. Comparatively HTC's Mini variant, if confirmed, will beat the Galaxy S IV Mini in most categories.
