Over the past week or so, we’ve been hearing rumors about HTC’s upcoming handset, the HTC One mini 2, and we have also been treated to press renderings of said device, with the latest leak being reported earlier today. That being said, the folks at PhoneArena have managed to get their hands on what appears to be a real life photo of the HTC One mini 2, which you can see in the image to the right.
Unlike the more sombre-looking HTC One M8 (which the One mini 2’s design is based on), the One mini 2 appears to sport some color accents on the lines of the device, thus giving off a brighter and more playful appearance, if you will. Interestingly enough these colorful accents were not shown off in the press rendering so take it with a grain of salt for now since the device pictured could be a prototype.
However if anything this photo also serves to “confirm” that the HTC One mini 2 will not feature a dual-camera setup, unlike its big brother, but then again for a device that seems to be of the mid-range quality, we can’t say we’re too surprised. So far what we know about the device as far as the rumors are concerned, is that it will feature a 4.5-inch 720p HD display.
The phone has also been rumored to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, and will come with Android 4.4.2 KitKat preinstalled. The One mini 2 is also expected to see a release this summer although no word on pricing or availability just yet. Either way we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more information.
