HTC files confirm One Mini name, 720p resolution
There’s been a big uptick lately in the amount of news we’re hearing about the HTC One Mini. The once-M4 should be keeping the general look of the HTC One, but going with a smaller 4.3-inch display and tuning-down the rest of the phone’s specs to match. We’ve been hoping that this screen would be a 720p component, like on the HTC First, but that’s been difficult to verify – at least so far. Today, we get a look at the phone’s User Agent Profile, which gives us a few answers, straight form the horse’s mouth.
First up: the name. While a recent Bloomberg report had us wondering if “HTC One Mini” wasn’t set in stone, it’s spelled out clear as day here, and should be the company’s model PO581. We also see the phone’s resolution confirmed, and thankfully it’s indeed 1280 x 720.
The big question now is when the One Mini will launch. We’ve heard August a couple times, but there’s also been the suggestion that the phone might not make its debut until the fall.
