Having launched its HTC One dual SIM phone for Indian market, the Taiwan based manufacturer is ready to further expand its One series spectrum in the country. The company may come with a miniature version of HTC One, named as HTC One Mini in the Indian market by the end of this month. People with close information on the subject believe that the 4G enabled device may cost somewhere between Rs 35,000-38,000. For 3G services, it may offer a 2GB data from Tata Docomo.
Here is the comprehensive list of device specifications-
1) 4.3-inch Super LCD2 touchscreen display (1280×720 pixel) with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 technology
2)1.4 GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 mobile chipset
3) 1 GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory storage with no card slot for further extension
4)4.1 megapixel UltraPixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, HTC Zoe feature helps you to edit and tweak your clicks in many ways
5) 1.6 megapixel camera with 720p HD videos recording support
6) Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system with HTC sense 5.0 on top
7) 2G, 3G, 4G LTE network support
8) 1800 mAh battery
Apart from being smaller and more compact, the device has no special specs or features as compared to the original HTC One. While the powerful processor and interface makes a very good experience with HTC Sense 5.0, a not-so-powerful battery and absence of memory card slot play spoil sport. Even the price looks a touch too high for the specs.
While other manufacturers are coming out low cost Android based solutions in India, HTC is on the spree of rolling out expensive devices. It currently sells HTC Butterfly S, the most expensive smartphone in the country. Let’s see if this strategy pays to the company in the coming days or they adopt a rectified track.
