HTC today has announced its sleek and slender HTC One mini. Its economy of scale brings to mind E.F. Schumacher's 1973 book, Small is Beautiful, especially in a land of ever-larger smartphones. The HTC Mini One's polished aluminum body, with a choice of Glacial Silver or Stealth Black, measures 132mm x 63.2mm x 9.25mm (approximately 5.19" x 2.48" x 0.36") and weighs 122g (0.42 ounces). Available capacities vary, up to 16GB of internal storage; there is not option for removable media for storing photos and videos. Powered by a dual-core 1.4 GHz processor, the HTC One mini runs the latest version of Android with HTC Sense. 

More compact than its HTC One sibling, the slender One mini may fit into the pocket of your skinny jeans.
As expected, the HTC One mini is equipped with HTC Zoe and the ability to automatically create 30-second highlights of your images.

The phone features a 4.3-inch, 720p display and an UTC UltraPixel camera with a BSI (back side illuminated) 1/3" sensor, f/2.0 aperture and 28mm lens. HTC claims that the One mini's sensor captures 300% more light than traditional smartphone sensors, promising above-average performance in low light. Output strength from the five-level flash is automatically adjusted according to camera-to-subject distance.  

The 4-megapixel rear camera captures full HD (1080p) video, while the 1.9 megapixel front camera records 720p video also uses a BSI sensor. HTC Zoe is included, with all the features you expect including 30-second highlight clips.

Pricing will be announced later this summer. HTC expects to ship the One mini to select markets in August, with global availability in September. For detailed specifications and more information, visit the HTC site
