It’s all about the Power of 10 this year for HTC. On tap for this spring is the HTC 10, and it now appears the Taiwanese company might be readying a mini version of the device now that Apple has made a splash with the iPhone SE. What makes the iPhone SE special is that not only is it a smaller phone, it features similar specs found on the larger, more premium phones.

Based on the rumors, HTC might be going in the same direction with the HTC 10 Mini. Here’s everything we know about it so far.

Top of the line specs

According to Android News in Australia, the HTC 10 Mini was revealed in a leaked memo, and it sports a 4.7-inch display. It might not be considered a “mini” by some people, especially when the iPhone SE has a 4-inch display. However, with most phones being 5-inches or greater, it’s not a crazy notion either.

As far as power is concerned, the HTC 10 Mini could feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 under the hood. This processor hasn’t been officially announced by Qualcomm, and the rumor is that it will be identical to the Snapdragon 820, but with a higher 2.8GHz clock speed. So it’s likely to be a quad-core processor built with custom Kryo 64-bit cores.

The only other rumored spec is that it’ll have 4GB of RAM, which is pretty hefty for a mini phone.

Design

Little is known about the design of the rumored phone, but it’s likely to look very much like the HTC 10. So it could have an all metal body and chamfered edges on the backside. It’s also likely to sport a similar home button at the bottom front of the device, which could double as a fingerprint sensor.

Release date and pricing

The HTC 10 Mini is rumored to launch this September. However, we don’t know if that refers to an event when the phone will be officially announced or if it will actually become available for purchase.

We’ll keep you updated on the HTC 10 Mini rumors right here, so check back often.
