A possible replacement for the HTC One S
This is shaping up to be interesting year for smartphones, and if you're an Android user, you'll have more options than ever to choose from. One of those options is the HTC One Mini, a handset that's sure to give One S owners a bit of smartphone envy. A German website posted a handful of photos of the One Mini, along with a list of specs that include a 4.3-inch 720p display.
According to Androidnext.de , it will also sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 dual-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 4MP rear-facing camera, and 1.6MP front-facing camera. That's 100MHz slower than the One S, though the One Mini has a better GPU (Adreno 305 versus 225), higher resolution display, and updated software (Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with Sense 5).
Another German website, MobileGeeks.de , pegs the launch as still being on track for July, based on information it obtained from its "internal source." The site also says HTC will follow up the One Mini launch with a One Max phablet slated for September. The HTC One Max will feature a 6-inch Full HD 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of Storage, and a 3200mAh battery.
