At this point, little doubt remains that HTC is planning to release a smaller variant of the HTC One.

Not only has the HTC M4 been mentioned in several past rumors and leaks, just yesterday we received new photos and details that further shed light on the device. Still not sure what to think? Here’s some even more evidence that the M4 is the real deal: the handset has now shown up in a User Agent Profile (UAProf).

According to the UAproof details, the handset will arrive as the HTC One Mini, which is in line with previous rumors. The UAproof also confirms the phone will have a 720p resolution and will run on Android 4.2.2.

Unfortunately, the UAproof doesn’t give us any other new details. Luckily there have been plenty of past leaks to help fill in the blanks. The HTC One Mini will feature a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, accompanied by 2GB of RAM. Other specs include 16GB storage and HTC BoomSound front stereo speakers. We also know it will have a 4.3-inch display and will feature an “UltraPixel” camera.

So is this any mystery left to the HTC One? It certainly doesn’t seem that way, though perhaps HTC could still sneak in a few features we’ve yet to hear about. The big question is when is it coming. While nothing is truly official until HTC says so, based on past rumors, a Q3 launch seems likely. This means the phone could arrive in as little as a few weeks, or as late as this fall.

What do you think, are you interested in getting your hands on the HTC One Mini?

  • I’d love to get one – if it has T-Mobile bands and they don’t screw up the button layout.

    If its price on release is the same or less than of the Nexus 4 (€350) – I might consider buying it.

  • I really like the HTC One. I received mine last week and it’s a great device.

    I’m not sure about the aspect ratio for the 4.3″ screen. It seems too narrow and too tall for a device that size. The 4.7″ screen of the One M7 is great as it is, but for the Mini I would go a little wider so it doesn’t look like a candy bar, something the iPhone 5 has been criticized for before.

      The reason some of us want smaller phones is to type one-handed. A wider aspect ratio would ruin that. I have a One S right now (4.3″, same aspect ratio) and it looks fine. I wish the side bezels were narrower though, because it’s a tiny bit wider than I’d like. The One Mini has the same problem.

      • I guess you’re right. People with small hands will find it difficult if it was a bit wider. An advantage of making it less tall is that it would be easier to tap the top buttons in apps. The majority of them has them in the top. I have large hands and sometimes it’s hard to reach them on the One, which is very tall.

  • I hope it is released sooner than later. I have just killed my One S :-(

    The price has to be lower than the Nexus 4 for me to even consider it.
