HTC has accidentally confirmed the existence of the One Mini with a post published by error on its blog. The post was deleted immediately after. While there was no specific mention of the One Mini, the post titled “Little Things That Pack a BIG Punch” was pretty much a giveaway of HTC’s plans. The fact that the post was removed proves that it wasn’t deliberate. We’re now hoping to get a formal announcement as soon as possible as the secret is already pretty much out in the open.
The smartphone seems to be a viable option for people who aren’t too fond of the full sized One. And HTC’s aim is to bring the “One experience” to as many people as possible. The One experience is not only with the software or Sense 5, but also with the hardware and the build quality. The smartphone has been rumored for a late July launch, so the timing of this (accidental) blog post couldn’t be any better. HTC also packed in a neat little infographic explaining why small isn’t necessarily bad. You can find that here.
Here’s what the post said – “The HTC One, by many accounts, is the pinnacle of smartphone achievement. The beautiful metal design, powerful hardware, and innovative user experience pack a lot into a svelte package, making it hit with critics and consumers alike. This success has only boosted our passion to bring the One experience to as many people as possible.”
