HTC One Mini and Max Hitting Markets Before End of Q3

HTC One VariantsThe two variants of the the HTC One that we’ve been hearing all about, the One Mini and the One Max, will supposedly be hitting the market sooner than we thought.

The One Mini, which is a 4.3-inch smaller sibling to the 4.7-inch One, will be hitting the market before July is over, according to what Taiwanese sources have told MobileGeeks. The One Max, which, with its 6-inch display, will serve as a direct competitor to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III, is expected to be available before the end of Q3 2013, likely in early September.

In terms of specs, nothing has been confirmed yet, but there have been plenty of rumors. Both phones will retain the same unique design of the original One (including the aluminum unibody), which was part of what made it such a success. The display on the One Mini is expected to be 720p, while its processor will only be a Snapdragon 400, clocking in at 1.4 GHz. Other rumored specs include 1GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage with no microSD card slot, and it will be available in silver and black. The reasoning for the smaller size and lower specs, of course, is to keep the price point lower than the original One, but there has been no word yet as to how exactly it will be priced.

The One Max has far more impressive (again, rumored) specs, with a Super LCD 3 1080p display, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, and 2GB of RAM. Users are expected to have a choice between 32GB and 64GB of onboard storage, along with a 3,200 mAh battery.
