HTC One Mini might be out in the UK tomorrow
Carphone Warehouse allows customers to get the One Mini either on contract (it’s free on plans starting at £27 per month), or SIM-free (for £429.95).
Expansys is offering the handset only SIM-free, asking £369.99 (€430, or $575) for it – that’s closer to its real value.
Meanwhile, other British retailers – like Unlocked-mobiles – are still expecting the One Mini to be released on August 12.
Although it’s a mini smartphone, the One Mini is not much smaller than the original One. It measures 132 x 63.2 x 9.3 mm – compared to One’s 137.4 x 68.2 x 9.3 mm. The handset runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean (certainly upgradeable to 4.3), featuring: a 4.3 inch HD (1280 x 720) display, Sense 5 UI, LTE connectivity, NFC, Beats Audio, 1.6MP front-facing camera, 4MP UltraPixel rear camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording, dual-core 1.4GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, Micro SD card support, and a 1,800 mAh battery.
In the US, the HTC One Mini could be launched by AT&T later this year. However, the second largest North American carrier has yet to confirm this.
