HTC M4 could be a toned down version of One


The HTC M4 seems to have taken inspiration from Samsung’s mini devices as the Taiwanese OEM has reportedly decided to introduce a toned down version of the flagship One. This speculation about the new handset reminds us of the South Korean company’s strategy of launching the mini variant of the Galaxy S3 a few days after the latter’s unveiling. The S4’s counterpart seems to be in the pipeline as well.

Pretty identical to the device from which it is inspired, the phone will employ similar design elements, but a smaller chassis as compared to its sibling. It is expected to flaunt a 4.3-inch display of 720p resolution as opposed to the full HD 4.7-inch touchscreen of the One. Those who go for the compact gadget will have to make do with a dual core CPU which is not all that bad. It will continue to tag along 2GB of RAM to ensure smooth navigation. And Phone Arena has found out that it will extend support to LTE mobile networks too.


Its internal memory amounts to 16GB and a non-removable battery of 1700mAh capacity has been assigned the task of coughing up the juice for at least an entire day. And considering that it borrows features from the company’s flagship phone, its camera will definitely make the most of the UltraPixel technology. Needless to mention, that it will be operating with the assistance of the Android Jelly Bean platform, tweaked with the latest version of the Sense UI.
