Barely two months after HTC unveiled their latest flagship smartphone, the Taiwanese firm now gives us the M8’s “Mini-Me” – the HTC One Mini 2.
Being a toned-down version of the HTC One 2014, the One Mini 2 doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that it’s big brother has. For starters, it has a smaller display which measures 4.5-inch diagonally and has a 720p resolution.
The handset runs on a Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage. It’s powered by a non-removable 2,110mAh battery pack which is concealed under its aluminum chassis.
Other notable features of the HTC One Mini 2 include a 13MP BSI snapper at the back, NFC and a micro-SD card slot; components that were noticeably missing on last year’s model.
