HTC’s One may be facing an uphill climb in the market, but perhaps a smaller version of the device will help the company’s bottom line. The device itself is literally just a smaller version of the One, complete with the front-facing speakers and premium design of its larger brother.
The specifications are also fairly high-end. While the 1080p panel has been switched out for a 4.3″ 720p display, the camera and display technology remain unchanged. Similarly, the build of the device appears to be identical — a very good thing, judging by how popular the design and build of the One are among consumers and reviewers alike.
Would you be interested in this smaller, presumably cheaper HTC device? Personally, yes — especially if the battery life is an improvement.
