15 May, 2014

HTC just took the wraps off the One mini 2. The successor of the One mini has grown in size and features a much more groovy design, akin to its bigger brother, the One M8.

The HTC One mini 2 features a 4.5" display of 720p resolution (326 ppi pixel density). As a result, the phone is now slightly larger than its predecessor and measures 137 x 65 x 10.6mm. Youíll notice itís nearly 1mm thicker, too, but thanks to the altered curved design it feels just as nice in the hand. The phone weighs 137 grams and sports BoomSound dual front stereo speakers.

Under the hood of the HTC One mini 2 operates a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset featuring a 1.2GHz quad-core Cortex A7 CPU, 1GB of RAM and an Adreno 305 GPU. The storage is 16GB Ė just as much as on the original One mini, but this time it can be expanded by an additional 128GB thanks to the microSD card slot.

Interestingly the HTC One mini 2 marks a departure from HTCís UltraPixel camera tech and comes with a more conventional 13MP camera with a BSI sensor and an f/2.2 lens. Just like the 5MP camera at the front, it is capable of recording 1080p video.
