DigiTimes: HTC One Mini and Galaxy S4 to be launched in Q3

Last month, we saw the HTC One Mini alongside the HTC One, and the smartphone looked like a treat for people looking forward to mid-range devices. Also, Samsung came out with the Galaxy S4 Mini, which is a cheap alternative of the Galaxy S4. Samsung didn’t make it official when they are planning to launch it, and HTC One Mini is still in the pipeline. DigiTimes is now reporting that both HTC and Samsung will launch their entry-level smartphones in Q3. Although, it’s still 50/50 so we are not going to bet any money on it.

Mini versions previously launched by international smartphone vendors were significantly inferior to corresponding flagship models in hardware specification and intended to cater to entry-level and mid-range market segments, the sources indicated. However, the Galaxy S4 mini and HTC One mini are only slightly less competitive with Galaxy S4 and HTC One respectively in screen, processor and camera specifications and have the same industrial design and software functions, the sources pointed out. The two mini versions will be positioned as mid-range to high-end smartphones, the sources noted.


Well, lets take the rumor with a grain of salt and wait for both Samsung and HTC to let the cat out of the bag. Anyway, what are your thoughts about the mid-range versions? Would you prefer a HTC One Mini or a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini? Tell us about it in the comment box below.
