HTC announced the One Mini 2 on Thursday, its latest mid-range smartphone that offers some of the features of the One (M8) but in a smaller body. The phone is equipped with many of the same trimmings as the more expensive and larger One (M8) but, as its name implies, comes in a much smaller form factor that phablet haters will enjoy.
The One Mini 2 doesn’t have as much aluminum in the body as the One (M8) does, but the plastic is used sparingly as to still offer a very premium looking handset. The device is equipped with a 4.5-inch 720p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, NFC, Bluetooth 4.,0, 16GB of storage, expandable with up to a 128GB microSD card, 1GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel wide-angle front-facing camera and a 2,100mAh battery. Also, HTC ditched the Ultrapixel/Duo Camera setup on the One Mini 2, instead opting for a 13-megapixel shooter.
The One Mini 2 will launch in the EMEA and North Asia next month, though HTC hasn’t announced any U.S. plans just yet. It will be available in gunmetal gray, glacial silver and amber gold.
