A week after the HTC One has officially launched in Malaysia, the interwebs are now abuzz with news that HTC will be releasing a new smartphone. And not just any smartphone – this one’s a downsized version of its current flagship model, the HTC One. Yup! The HTC One is getting its very one “mini me”.
According to PhoneArena, HTC will be unveiling a 4.3-inch variant of the One towards the end of Q2. Codenamed “HTC M4”, the handset is expected to ship with the One branding and has almost similar physical attributes as the flagship model.
The HTC M4 is alleged to come with these specs:
- Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
- 4.3-inch 720p display
- Dual-core processor
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB internal storage capacity
- 1700mAh non-removable battery
- 4G-LTE support
Hmm. Sounds like a familiar strategy, no? Didn’t Samsung also release a certain “mini me” version of one of its flagship models?
