It’s looking like HTC are going to be expanding its currently HTC One range of handsets by adding a big and little brother to the current flagship HTC Android running handset. Rumours that a HTC One Mini and a HTC One Max are both circling today with some re[ported leaked images of the smaller Mini and a leaked release date for the bigger Max.
The HTC One Mini has been seen today… well that’s what some reports are suggesting as a selection of images have been leaked that purport to be the mid-ranged smaller HTC One variant. The images come from German website Androidnext.de and they show a small version of what appears to be the HTC One.
Some of the rumoured specifications are that the HTC One Mini will have a 1.4 Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a 1280×720 4.3 inch display. Its also said that the phone will have a 4 megapixel back facing cam and a 1.6 forward facing camera too.
The One Max however is rumoured to have the following specs: a 5.9-inch 1920 x 1080 (Full HD 1080p) screen, 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32 or 64GB of storage depending on version, and a 3,200mAh battery.
Another German source has told site Mobile Geeks that the HTC One Max will be available in “early September” which will be around the release date of the already established Samsung Note range of phones next offering, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Both are rumoured to run the latest (but not latest for long) Android OS, 4.2.2 Jelly Bean which is just arriving on the original HTC One smartphone. The One is currently garnering HTC some great attention with its sleek aluminium design and great Sense Ui which returns the Chinese company back to the top of the smartphone pile.
We love our budget mini phone and the beastly max handsets so we hope the rumours of an extended HTC range are true. We expect to see more of the handsets before this year’s IFA event in Berlin which is taking place 6-11 of September.
Whats the betting that Germany see’s the handsets first!
