HARDWARE MAKER HTC announced the HTC One Mini on Thursday, and we took the pint-sized handset for a spin.
The HTC One Mini is the company's answer to the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, looking to lure those after a premium phone on a tight budget. The handset's specifications aren't dissimilar from those of HTC's flagship One smartphone, featuring the same aluminium chassis design, the same 4MP Ultrapixel camera and Google's Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean mobile operating system skinned with the HTC Sense 5.0 user interface.
HTC has made some cutbacks though. The screen, for example, has been downsized to 4.3in and has HD 720p resolution, while the quad-core processor in the HTC One has been replaced with a dual-core 1.4GHz chip.
The HTC One Mini will be released in the UK next month, but we're still awaiting word on the handset's price.
