With the buzz about HTC One Google Edition still in the air, HTC is preparing to launch the HTC One Mini – codenamed HTC M4 – in mid-July, according to a report by eprice.com.tw.
Among the rumored specs, the HTC One Mini will feature a 4.3-inch display having a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, a dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor chip, 2GB RAM, Android 4.2 and HTC’s Sense 5 user interface. The device will be LTE-capable, and come with 16GB internal storage and 1,700mAh battery.
The HTC One Mini, the miniature version of HTC One, will compete with Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini also scheduled for a mid-July release. Both will launch shortly after the Google editions of the HTC One and Galaxy S4 make their debut. Its 720p display will likely beat the Galaxy S4 Mini’s qHD display. Its UltraPixel camera and metal design, borrowed from the flagship HTC One, could also give an upper hand for the HTC One Mini.
The eprice report also gives hints on the arrival of the next HTC Butterfly, named HTC Butterfly S, by the end of June. The new Butterfly will have a 5-inch screen similar to its predecessor and some design enhancements, such as addition of microSD card slot and better battery. Similar to the HTC One Mini, the Butterfly S will come with an UltraPixel camera.
The report goes on to give more eyebrow-raising news for HTC One fans – the manufacturer’s best-selling HTC One will offer two new color options starting mid-July. The red variant will come first, followed by the blue variant.
HTC fans are in for a good treat with the HTC’s soon-to-be-launched devices including the Google Edition of HTC One, the HTC M4, HTC Butterfly S, the T6 phablet, and the list could extend as more rumors sprout.
