Bloomberg report reiterates possible August launch of HTC One Mini
The existence of the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287567==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/05/01/mid.range.htc.m4.surfaces.looks.like.an.htc.one.mi ni/" rel='nofollow'>HTC One Mini</a> is looking more likely, courtesy of a new report. The smaller version of the HTC flagship is claimed to be coming out by August, confirming other recent release-date <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287568==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/06/05/smaller.htc.smartphone.retains.ultrapixel.camera.s ensor.from.htc.one/" rel='nofollow'>rumors</a>, as well as the change of screen size from the 4.7-inch display in the original <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287569==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/05/12/does.the.htc.one.have.what.it.takes.to.beat.the.ga laxy.s4/" rel='nofollow'>HTC One</a> to a smaller and lower-resolution 4.3-inch version. <br />
<br />
The report <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287565==http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-06-10/htc-said-to-prepare-mini-one-smartphone-in-challenge-to-samsung.html" rel='nofollow'>by</a> <em>Bloomberg</em> mentions two people "briefed on the plans" as its sources, who go on to state it will have a less-powerful Qualcomm processor, but stopped short of saying what exactly it would be. While the HTC One has a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 running at 1.7GHz, previous rumors claim it will have some form of dual-core chip, along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. It would also have a 4-megapixel rear camera, using the same UltraPixel technology as its larger predecessor. <br />
<br />
The move to make a "mini" version of a strong-selling smartphone is one that is also being employed by HTC's main Android smartphone rival. Samsung's own <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287566==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/05/30/s4.mini.shrinks.screen.battery.storage.capacity/" rel='nofollow'>Galaxy S4 Mini</a> was revealed at the end of last month, and though a release date was not offered at the time, a London event later <a href=""http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/05/27/smartphones.notebook.likely.candidates.for.event/>this month</a> may provide details of its roll-out, which could be in the same timeframe as the potential HTC One Mini.
