HTC Zara Mini to be called HTC Z3?
The unnamed (and obviously unannounced) HTC Android smartphone that we showed you yesterday is believed to be a mini version of the HTC Zara (another unannounced – but confirmed – device). However, it looks like the handset won’t be called Zara Mini, but HTC Z3 – at least according to EVleaks (which has an excellent track record when it comes to stuff like this).
Update: actually, Z3 is just a codename, and the final moniker of the handset will probably have “Desire” in it.
The new smartphone has been approved by Chinese authorities as the HTC 301e. Thankfully, that allows us to see more images of it:
The features of the Zara Mini / Z3 should include a 4.3 inch WVGA display, dual SIM capabilities, dual-core 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 5MP rear camera, 8GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support. The smartphone will definitely run Android Jelly Bean, but it remains to be seen which version.
Both the Z3 and the slightly larger Zara will probably be announced by HTC in the next few months.
