HTC One Mini 2: Not so 'mini' in price

HTC One Mini 2

The One mini 2 could be the HTC equivalent to Apple's iPhone 5C: A phone for those who want the Big Brother experience but at a lower price.

The HTC One Mini 2 is one of the most luxurious compact phones in the market, thanks to its beautiful metal body and its decent screen, its KitKat OS with Sense 6 is very pleasant to use and its camera takes impressive shots.

The HTC One Mini 2 takes the same nice aluminium design and Android KitKat OS of the One, but shrinks it down to a more manageable 4.5 inches. HTC has also shrunk down the specs, it has a 1.2GHz rather than 2.3GHz processor inside the phone, a 13-megapixel (not the M8's "Ultrapixel") camera and the display is 720p, down from 1080p.
Except for camera, those specs almost exactly match the extremely affordable Motorola Moto G, which is now available with 4G LTE

Main features

4.5" 720p Super LCD2, 326 pixels per inch, Gorilla Glass 3, ambient light sensor
Android 4.4.2 KitKat with the latest HTC Sense 6
Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 processor, Adreno 305 GPU and 1GB of RAM
13MP camera, single LED flash, 1080p video recording
5MP front-facing camera, 1080p video recording
16GB of built-in storage, expandable via a microSD card slot
Active noise cancellation with a secondary microphone
Front-facing stereo speakers
2110mAh battery; Extreme Power Saving Mode

The HTC One Mini 2 is initially intended for markets outside of North America. AT&T did carry the original HTC One Mini, however, so we'll hold out a glimmer of hope that we'll see the the phone in the USAat some point.
In Amazon UK, the One mini 2 is priced at £498.85, which translates to €615. We wouldn't hit the panic button just yet - such preliminary listings put an inflated price, which goes does by the time the device launches more often than not. The more interesting (and probably more accurate) part of the listing is the estimated availability date - the One mini 2 is set to go on sale on June 30. That's not ideal given the earlier timeframe, but at least it's a specific date to look forward to.
