HTC today unveiled the successor to the One Mini, the One Mini 2.
Like the flagship One (M8), the One Mini 2 sports an aluminium back which comes in three colors (gunmetal gray, glacial silver and amber gold). However, it has a plastic border around the 4.5-inch 720p display. Located at the top and bottom of the display are the stereo BoomSound speakers.
Running under the hood are a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM, Android 4.4 KitKat and Sense 6. HTC also replaced the UltraPixel rear camera with a 13-megapixel camera with BSI sensor and an aperture of f/2.2. There is no Duo Camera, which means that you will not get the fanciful camera effects such as UFocus.
The One Mini 2 is available in 16GB storage capacity and has a microSD memory card slot that supports cards up to 128GB. Other specs include 4G LTE connectivity, GPS with GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 2,100mAh battery.
HTC states that the One Mini 2 will be available in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia from June 2014. Unfortunately, we were told by HTC that it has no plans to bring the device into Singapore.
