Taiwanese mobile phone manufacturer HTC has seen a picture outed of its yet-to-be-announced, codenamed HTC M4, aka, HTC One mini – along with its specifications confirmed.
The allegedly codenamed HTC M4 is said to be a smaller and more pocket friendly version of the company’s flagship HTC One, in the same way as the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is to the Samsung Galaxy S4.
It is believed to have a 4.3-inch Super LCD 3 screen, with a resolution of 720p – where as HTC’s One comes with a 4.7-inch full HD 1,920 x 1,080 display.
This is with a metallic unibody (similar to the One), although it is thought to have a plastic front face.
These specs and the image above have been published by Engadget, from a trusted source – who is in possession of the HTC M4/HTC One Mini.
The person notes it still has the Beats Audio branding on the rear, but missing is the IR blaster for TV and set-top box remote controlling.
Also added, is that the model to hand runs from a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and the HTC Sense overlay.
Bloomberg has it that the company is preparing the HTC M4/HTC One Mini for a summer release, according to two people familiar with the matter.
Omio is a little reluctant to believe the HTC One Mini name, after we were told by the head of HTC for UK and Ireland, there would be no more HTC One named mobile phones this year.
That was during a one-to-one interview at Mobile World Congress, this year.
