The HTC One Mini leaked once again, and we now finally have an almost complete picture of its specifications. The latest batch of inside info was made public by the good folks at AndroidNext.de and includes a batch of pictures of the phone, as well as screenshots of the One Mini running the CPU-Z hardware identifier app.

The well-leaked device will feature 1GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 400 processor, which makes it comparable in terms of computing power to last year’s HTC One S. But here’s the kicker – while the One S won’t get to join the Sense 5 club, as HTC recently announced to the chagrin of owners everywhere, the HTC One Mini will launch with Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5, just like its bigger sibling, the One. The differences between the One S and One Mini are only marginal – both feature 1GB of RAM and a similarly muscled processor, so whatever technical argument HTC may have had, it’s debunked at this point.

Other confirmed specifications include the 4.3-inch 720p display, 16GB of internal storage, and a 4 UltraPixels camera. According to another German site, the HTC One Mini will be announced in the following two weeks, so stay tuned for more details.

    Seems like the HTC “one” should have been named the HTC “One of many” ;-)

    I love the way HTC is constantly showing what a bunch of liars they are. If One S users have any sense (see what I did there) they will not be upgrading/crossgrading to a One or One mini or any other HTC again.

  • Hure

    What bs, just shot from a different angle. Illusion people!

      The difference between them is just one centimeter, so it’s easy to mistake one for the other.

    Make an awesome product that isn’t overpriced and everyone will buy it. Try to make 200% profit on everything and you will fail. Don’t follow Apple’s business model.

  • Mike Bastable

    HTC’s decision to abandon the One is stunning, in its stupidity.
    A company in trouble needs to build trust with its existing consumer base to prep them for future purchases, a real and active update program (if necessary in cohots with the Android developer community) will keep users in your ecosyem and promote brand loyalty longer term. HTC makes many steps that seem ill conceived but this one is plain stupid.

    • OMGgary

      Agreed. This is the real issue at the very heart of HTC’s problems. All other factors pale in comparison to this one key issue that HTC continue to get oh so wrong.
      Whether the phone made of metal, plastic or wood, there will always be some people who like it. Whether the phone has Sense, stock Android, or some other interface, there will always be some who like it. Whether the phone has SD slot or not, removable battery or not, there will always be some who like it. The sure way to upset all of these people whatever their particular taste is to son them a load of bull

    720p and adreno 320 makes a lot of difference.

    • http://forum.xda-developers.com/member.php?u=2926289 Jasonwsc

      It doesn’t have Adreno 320, since it is a Snapdragon 400. The Adreno 305 on this phone is pretty similar to the 225 on the One S. The Adreno 225 might even be slightly faster.

      If you want a midrange phone with Adreno 320, you are only be left with Xperia SP.

      • Simon Belmont

        Exactly. The Adreno 220 in my EVO 3D is really good and it’s slightly older than the one in the HTC One S.

        The Adreno 225 and the SoC, in general, in the HTC One S would have easily handled Android 4.2.2. What a shame.

  • Guest

    Specs are surprisingly similar to the Xperia SP.

  • Simon Belmont

    This is one thing that’s bothered me about HTC. They make really great hardware, but they don’t support it very well.

    It was one reservation I had for telling my wife to pull the trigger on her HTC One (she has one now, BTW, and loves it). I’ve had a few HTC phones over the years, and they all only received one major update (save for my wife’s HTC EVO 4G, which received two) and it was a long time coming.

      What do you prefere, a working device or a borken update? ask note 1 and sg2 user what do they think of their 4.1 update

      • Simon Belmont

        Sure, no problem. I asked my friend how his Epic 4G Touch (SGS2) with Android 4.1 is doing, and he says it’s great. No issues. Very smooth and lag free.

        Just because a company is slow to update doesn’t mean they’re delivering quality updates. HTC has a well known history of dropping support on devices fairly early and, like i said above, I actually like HTC.

        • Amine Elouakil

          Last I checked your friend doesn’t represent the vast majority of people around the world I’ll suggest you checking some forums such as XDA or your favorite ones to check on those issues.

          “Just because a company is slow to update doesn’t mean they’re delivering quality updates”

          Well, it’s true but not in this case, and just a reminder that HTC been delivering updates before Samsung till recently (they always had to patch their updates a week later due to issues), SGS4 which is a powerhouse came out with 4.2.2, yet it lags, is that even acceptable? the HTC One on the other hand is lag free, not even when you run the most process intensive apps and it’s the same with 4.2.2

          • Simon Belmont

            Last I checked, I never said my friend did represent the majority of people around the world, but thanks for putting words in my mouth. However, he did provide me with real world experience on the subject that you told me to check on. If you check forums yourself, most of the time people only post about things that they’re having trouble with, so complaints tend to get more exposure than positive things, which introduces a bias. Granted, perhaps many people are having performance issues with 2.5 year old phones running nearly the latest Android software, but I’d rather have the choice of updating officially to a newer version of Android than being given no update path forward, aside from rooting and flashing a custom ROM, and apparently a lot of people agree with me if you look at the outrage of the HTC One S debacle (petitions and so forth).

            As for HTC updates, I’ve been using HTC phones since 2009, and I’m pretty familiar with how they operate. I have this notion that you think I hate HTC and have no respect for them, but it’s actually the opposite. By the way, I know that the HTC One is much smoother than the SGS4, because my wife has an HTC One and I’ve personally used it and been pleased with its performance. I can see that no matter what I say, you’re going to vehemently defend HTC, which is fine, despite me indicating that I really have no major beef with them, so I guess we’ll just agree to disagree at this juncture.

          • Amine Elouakil

            No you didn’t but you did assume so, if then why did you talk about your friend SG2 in the first place.
            Yes the SGS2 is 2 years old, but the Note isn’t.

            “and apparently a lot of people agree with me if you look at the outrage of the HTC One S debacle (petitions and so forth).”

            This is wrong, check the petition yourself, there are at least hundrend of thousands if not millions of One S users (HTC Sells millions of smarthphone per month) and the petition it self there are less than 7k people that owns and does NOT own the device, 7k is big number on it own, but when compared to the number of owner it’s insignifiant, its like the amount of people that flash roms and I’m one of those compared to the average consumer.

            What I want is a uniformed android experience, I want Google to release the next Android version to OEMs and set some dead lines before it release it so these OEMs can built their own update as close as possible to the official release dateand share some of the specification of it vision of the next version (so OEMs can build a phone with the necessary specs and partitions beforehand and not have an HTC Desire story all over again)

          • Влатко Стојанов

            LoL, no and NO. SGS4 is more fluid than One. I’m every day with those phones.
            And yes, my old HTC Sensation (2 years old) works much better with Android 4.2.2 than HTC’s official 4.0.

          • Amine Elouakil

            No it is not, not even a single a review agrees with you.

    “Yet another HTC One Mini leak that will upset One S users”
    Was it mandatory to flame HTC? Well I guess Petrovan biase is top notch.

  • Seth Forbus

    Of course across the room we have samsung who just upgraded the Galaxy s ll to Jellybean.

  • Влатко Стојанов

    No HTC, thank you. You screwed my Desire, you screwed my Sensation, you screwed One S, you gonna screw One (yes, I know)… And now you want me to buy One Mini? No, thank you. I’m done with you.
