The predictions have been right and the new “mini-ship flagship” brand based in Taiwan wears a design very similar to HTC One but its smaller 4.3-inch screen, which by the way is not so mini. The panel offers HD resolution and a density quite high, which makes it one of its most attractive.
The new company also boasts of several systems to be found in its big brother, such as Ultrapíxel camera , the HTC BoomSound speakers or home screen with theHTC widget BlinkFeed , a good way to keep abreast of the news that we are interested in a quick look.We analyze the key points of latest smartphone HTC .
Display and Design
The display of HTC Mini One key point is that the device receives the appellation regarding your smaller size, always compared to HTC One since 4.3 inches is a large enough size to see content clearly. The resolution of this piece rises to 1,280 x 720 pixels, a configuration that a few months ago was reserved for high-end phones, the result here is that the density reaches 342 ppi , a very high concentration that gives very good sharpness.

As advanced in the input, the HTC One Mini has the camera Ultrapixel already met through the original model. The sensor has a size of 1/3 of an inch and a total resolution of four megapixels.

The camera is ready to take sharp photos but the lighting of the scene did not accompany, the elements that influence these results are those named ultrapíxeles , the system backlight sensor and the brightness of the lens (f/2.0). To help in situations where the lighting is really bad also features a smart LED flashthat regulates the intensity up to five levels according to the distance from the subject being photographed.

These parts include reducing distortion amplifier, also certified by the brand comes Beats Audio.
