We’ve talked a lot about the HTC One Mini this week, as the mid-range smartphone developed by the Taiwan-based company is subject to a lot of leaks and rumors these weeks. After we’ve seen some leaked HTC One Mini photos and specs earlier this week, now we get to here more about its release date.
Just like the previous leaks, today’s details also come from a German website, Mobilegeeks.de, which revealed some interesting details about the HTC One Mini release date and HTC One Max launch.
According to the aforementioned website, the HTC One Mini will be officially introduced in the next two weeks, as the Asian phone maker aims to get it on the market as soon as possible in order to be able to fight against Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Mini. The bigger brother of the HTC One, the phablet that coes by the name of HTC One Max will reportedly be announced in September, and it will probably go on sale in the same time with its biggest rival, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Since the reports are talking about a September release date for HTC One Max, I can’t help but think that the phablet will be announced at IFA Berlin 2013, at the same event where the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will reportedly debut, as the Taiwanese phone maker will aim to rival the Galaxy Note 2 follow up.
The rumor mill speculates that the HTC One Mini will be a mid-range smartphone that will come with a 4.3-inch HD display, while being underpinned by a dual-core Snapdragon 400 chipset based on two Krait cores clocked at 1.4 GHz. Sources say that the mid-ranger will also sport 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and the 4 megapixel UltraPixel camera borrowed from the HTC One flagship.
On the other hand it is speculated that the HTC One Max will sport a 5.9-inch Super LCD3 display with full HD resolution, while being powered by Qualcomm’s mighty Snapdragon 800 SoC with four Krait 400 cores clocked at 2.3 GHz and Adreno 330 GPU. The rumored technical specs of the HTC One Max also include 2 GB of RAM, 32/64 GB of internal storage and a 3,200 mAh battery. Rumor has it that the HTC One Max will borrow the design of the flagship device developed by the Taiwanese company, looking like a HTC One on steroids.
