HTC One Mini continues to poke its metal nose into our hearts

Well, here's another look at the HTC One Mini. In all its metallic, refreshingly small glory. The small, 4.3 inch handset has been leaked, and manages to still look just as good as its bigger brother. What's in store for it? We can't be sure on everything, but a picture tells a whole lot more than you'd expect.

We've talked about the One Mini before, but this image solidifies all that we already knew. For one, it is most certainly a scaled down version of the One, and it also has an all metal enclosure. Also, we can see that with the scaled down screen there is quite likely to be a scaled down resolution, at 720P. Still, we believe that at 720P on a 4.3" display, you're not exactly being shorthanded. That being said, if you want to use it as a wireless remote for your 4K TV, you might be out of luck, as the HTC Mini One more than likely does not carry a IR blaster like its bigger brother.

Up front is a ring of plastic that adds an extra bit of durability to the design. For the moment, the actual Mini itself is quite likely running Android 4.2, but we can't confirm that. Expected in the 3rd Quarter of 2013, it'll likely have an updated OS by then, and will be a slick contender against Samsung's Galaxy S 4 Mini.

Out back, you'll enjoy an Ultrapixel HD Camera capable of both still photos, video and Zoe Share capture. The Mini will likely be powered by a 1.4GHZ dual-core Processor as well, most likely the Snapdragon chipset found on the HTC First. We're excited to see what the Mini One will bring to the table... or in our case, our pockets.

    It looks pretty soft.

      It’s a smaller and presumably lower speced phone than the original (like many other “mini” phones i.e. S4 vs S4 Mini). What was your first clue?

    I never thought that I would say this, but I like the full-sized version better. Now, if they made an HTC First sans-Facebook, that would be a different story.
