HTC One Mini incoming soon, new Desire phones on way too

A compact and bijou edition of the HTC One could be along later this year, reports suggest, in a sign that low-cost mini versions of flagship phones are fast becoming this year’s black.

In a year that’s already brought us the Samsung Galaxy Mini and promises to be marked by the long-waited arrival of the low-cost iPhone mini, HTC is apparently prepping a slimmed down edition of the HTC One dubbed – you’ve guessed it – the HTC One Mini.

According to DigiTimes, the Android 4.2-powered handset will go into production in July and will pack a 4.3-inch display with a resolution of 720p, 16GB of internal storage and a dual-core CPU.

More importantly, though, it will retain its bigger brother’s UltraPixel camera, unibody metal construction and social-networking focussed Sense 5 custom skin. These were by some distance the most lauded aspects of the original One.

The site also claims that this year will see the release of new Desire-branded phones, reviving a marque that will forever be redolent of those heady days of 2010 when HTC ruled the Android roost.

The dual-SIM Desire 600 would appear to be aimed at the developing world, while the Desire 200 is a budget smartphone that we’re guessing is a kind of latter-day HTC Magic.
