It is confirmed that the mini version of HTC One is coming to the Philippines soon! According to tech blog Technoodling, the HTC One Mini is coming on mid-October. So that’s next week I guess. The catch however is the price. How much? Its P25,390. Man, that’s pricey! It kinda disappoints because its direct competition, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is priced below P20,000.
HTC One Mini specs:
- 1.4GHz Dual Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
- Adreno 305 GPU
- 1GB RAM
- 16GB internal storage (no external storage)
- 4.3 inch S-LCD3 Display (1,280 x 720 pixels) 341ppi
- 4 megapixel Ultrapixel rear camera with BSI (back side illumination) and LED flash
- 1.6 megapixel front facing camera with BSI
- LTE, HSPA+, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, WiFi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0
- 1,800 mAh battery
- Android 4.2 with Sense 5 UI
The good news though is that it supports LTE. Globe and Smart LTE bands will work fine on this device. If you find this phone too pricey but still drooling for it, then only way you can get is through Globe and Smart postpaid plans. So far, there’s still no pricing and offer yet from them. I will keep you posted.
