The HTC Mini+ (not to be confused with the HTC One Mini) is a companion device that can pair with other HTC handsets. The device, which resembles a small metallic television remote, will offer Bluetooth functionality and will be able to act as an extended phone for fielding calls and text messages. Users will also be able to check their phone logs and calendar entries.
The HTC Mini+, which previously launched in China earlier this year (as just the Mini), will reportedly debut at the IFA show in September according UberGizmo. HTC will reportedly release the device in the UK at some point this year, but it’s currently unknown if the manufacturer plans on offering the device in the US.
According to a recent report from Expert Reviews, the companion device may receive added functionality, hence its renaming as the HTC Mini+ for the company’s UK launch. HTC is expected to offer the device in the UK for £64.99.
On the other end of the spectrum, HTC’s purported super-sized HTC One variant debuted in a recent image leak. The high-end phablet will reportedly boast a number of performance gains over the company’s previous flagship with a 5.9-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution, and a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, as opposed to the Snapdragon 600 seen in the HTC One. HTC is also expected to unveil the One Max next month at IFA.
