HTC One Mini Shows Up On Chinese Certification Website
HTC are expected to announce the new HTC One Mini some time this month. Yesterday HTC started teasing the new One Mini, and now the device has turned up in the Chinese TENAA certification database.
The HTC One Mini ‘601e’ is listed with Android software and HSDPA/HSUPA data connectivity, and as expected looks an awful lot like a 4.3-inch HTC One — note the metallic back and trademark front-facing speakers. The volume rocker appears a little different to the HTC One in this image, as two separate buttons rather than a rocker. And the Mini’s LED flash has been relocated to above the camera lens.
Despite having a different name, the HTC One Mini in China and the rest of the world will differ by just one single aspect, support for TD-SCDMA network. Apart from that, we’ll be seeing the same 4.3″ HD (1280 x 720) display, 1 GB of RAM, 1.4 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 SoC, 4MP UltraPixel camera, HTC BoomSound, 1700 mAh rated battery and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with the latest Sense 5 UI.
With certifications and teasers out of the way, the official announcement can’t be too far away. There’s no info on when exactly that might happen, though.
