HTC One Mini: Honey I Shrunk The HTC One

HTC’s flagship phone, the HTC One, just went all Verne Troyer on us. Launching next month, the HTC One Mini shares a lot of the traits and features of its big brother, but a few key items are missing in a tradeoff for the compact size (and lower price). The 4.3-inch display gets a lower 1280 x 720 resolution, slower processor, and the RAM goes from 2GB to 1GB. But you’re still getting Beats Audio support and HTC’s Ultrapixel technology for some really sharp photos. If you’re looking for a nice little one-hander, the Mini may be made for you (and Verne).

HTC One: Boom Goes The Sound

Forget the dynamite, boom goes the sound with the new HTC One. Featuring dual speakers in the front, HTC is dubbing the new tech BoomSound (make explosion noise with your mouth now) (no, louder) (OK, that was good). The One features a so-called zero-gap aluminum design which certainly looks very classy in this picture and it will probably still look classy with A1 stains on it at your side at Longhorn Steakhouse. The phone will also feature a camera that kicks buttocks in low light; HTC says it’ll capture 300 percent more light than competing camera phones. The 4.7-inch (1080p) LCD display generates 468 pixels per inch and it all runs on a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor. Boom goes everything, apparently.
