A new image of the rumored HTC One Mini 2, the sequel to last year’s One Mini and the smaller version of HTC’s recently released new flagship HTC One M8 Android smartphone, have been released by leak site evleaks.
The image, a press render of the HTC One Mini 2, reveals that the new device looks very much like the HTC One M8. Based on the image, it looks like the HTC One Mini 2 will be available in three color options – white, grey, and champagne – which are the same colors the HTC One M8 is available in. The HTC One Mini 2 also features the same all metal construction as its older sibling as well as the move to on-screen buttons. The only visible difference between the two devices, aside from their size, is the absence of the Duo Camera system found on the HTC One M8.
Earlier leaks by evleaks reveal that the HTC One Mini 2 will feature a 4.5-inch 720p resolution display. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 1.4GHz quad-core processor combined with 1GB of RAM. The HTC One Mini 2 will come with 16GB of internal storage although a bigger storage capacity variant may also be released. Either way, the storage space of the HTC One Mini will be expandable via its microSD card slot.
As for the HTC One Mini 2’s single rear camera, it will be a 13-megapixel shooter while the device’s front-facing camera will sport 5-megapixels of shooting power. Connectivity-wise, the HTC One Mini 2 will support WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac as well as Bluetooth 4.0. The leak didn’t specify if the HTC One Mini 2 will support LTE.
The new device will run on Google’s Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system combined with HTC’s Sense 6.0 user interface. Previous leaks have insinuated that HTC is bringing Google’s next Android update 4.4.3 to both the HTC One Mini 2 and the HTC One M8.
No information on release date and pricing was leaked but HTC is expected to officially unveil the HTC One Mini 2 in the coming weeks. The HTC One Mini 2’s big brother – the HTC One M8 – was released only a few weeks ago to mixed reviews with some praising the phone’s design and features while others criticized HTC’s choice to stick with an UltraPixel camera.
