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.


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.

Garmin’s new D2 Air X10 adds voice controls for $550

Garmin today introduced a new smartwatch aimed at pilots and people who love flying. With the Garmin D2 Air X10, a successor to the older D2 Air, the company has built a typical smartwatch experience with a discrete aviation mode that builds in features that pilots would find necessary as well as added a little extra on the top.

The Garmin D2 Air X10 has one major upgrade over the previous D2 Air model -- the inclusion of voice functionality. Allowing pilots to keep their hands free while on the go, the D2 Air X10 can now be used in tandem with your phone's digital assistant, (Siri or Google Assistant depending on whether you use iOS or Android) to dictate texts and ask the typical queries you'd want to know as an air enthusiast. With a starting price of $550, it's probably worth considering if the existing Garmin D2 Air is a better fit with its $500 price point.

OnePlus 10 Pro due out on January 13, but buying it will be a challenge
OnePlus 10 Pro in Volcanic Black.

The OnePlus 10 Pro is now completely official, but given the amount of news about the phone over the past week, you’d be forgiven if you thought it had already been fully announced. In a way, it had, as the vast majority of the specs and new features had already been revealed. But now, at an event in China, the phone has been given its release date. However, the launch date does not cover the U.S., Europe, or India.

Let’s go over, once more, the OnePlus 10 Pro, and fill in the (few) blanks remaining on the spec sheet. It's made from glass, with Gorilla Glass Victus over the screen, and it comes in two colors: Emerald Forest and Volcanic Black. The phone has a 6.7-inch screen with a QHD+ resolution and a dynamic refresh rate operating between 1Hz and 120Hz for improved power efficiency. OnePlus says it’s the first screen with Dual Color Calibration, which apparently ensures it shows accurate colors at both high and low levels of brightness.
