We’ve known for a little while now that the HTC One mini would be coming sometime soon, and a now we have a few photographs of the unannounced device making their way across the web, showcasing some subtle differences from its bigger sibling.
One of the most noticeable differences between the HTC One and the One mini can be seen in the volume rocker: while the HTC One sports a single-button volume rocker, making the overall appearance more unified and cohesive, the One mini features two distinct buttons. Additionally, the camera lens and flash look like they are a bit more recessed into the aluminum shell of the One mini.
As the source link points out, since we don’t have exact dimensions yet, it’s hard to tell just how much smaller the One mini will be when compared to the full-sized HTC One. Rumored specs include 4.3-inch 720p display, dual-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, an Ultrapixel camera, LTE, and 1700mAh battery – this means it most likely won’t be as small as the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini.
Still, I’d be hesitant to buy any mid- to low-range HTC phone at this point, given what we know about how HTC plans to treat the One S going forward.
