AT&T to start offering HTC One Mini on August 23rd.
American carrier AT&T confirmed reports that it would be offering the HTC One mini, a bite-sized variant of HTC's 2013 flagship. Recent reports from various agencies suggest August 23rd would be the date when the carrier starts displaying the phone in its stores, which would be offered for $99.99 on 2-year contract. The reports were later confirmed by Jeff Bradly, Senior Vice President of AT&T Devices.

In his short statement, it was stated that the HTC One was among the provider's best sellers this year. Therefore, there is a need for the company to follow up the device's good sales performance by giving its customers yet another option, although both smartphones were totally identical if not because of their size and specs differences.

"Our customers loved the HTC One, so we are excited to offer this slimmer, more compact version. We’re proud to continue to offer our customers so many choices with a broad smartphone portfolio all on the nation’s fastest and most reliable 4G LTE network," said Bradley.

Considered as the flagship's littler brother, the One mini sports the same look and body material, aluminum. It only has a 4.3-inch display sporting 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. It uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 400 chipset with a dual-core Krait clocked at 1400Mhz. While the One mini comes with just half the size of HTC One's RAM and internal memory, it was given considerably huge battery with 1800mAh capacity (non-removable).

With HTC One mini already revealed, people have their attention locked on the newly-rumored HTC One Max, which is believed to be a bit larger than the flagship phone. Recently, a photo of HTC One, One Mini and One Max emerged but it was not immediately clear as to when the other phone would be launched.
