Following in the footsteps of Samsung with its Galaxy S4 mini, the HTC One mini will come with a 4.3in screen with a 720p resolution. It will also run on a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM.
Storage is at an average 16GB, of which 12GB is available. The HTC One mini will have the same 4Mp Ultrapixel camera as the HTC One and use a 1.6Mp snapper up front.
As previously leaked, the device will come with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and HTC's Sense 5 user interface. It's thought that the HTC One mini will be a replacement for the HTC One S since the smartphone won't be updated to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Sense 5.
Despite its name, the HTC One mini will only be marginally smaller than its bigger brother; only 1cm shorter, according to the source.
As well as the photo and the comprehensive specifications, HTC has hinted strongly that it will launch the HTC One mini. It published an infographic (above) named "Little things that pack a big punch". Although the blog post was about the HTC One, it's hardly a little handset.
