HTC One Mini: video hands-on, caratteristiche tecniche e disponibilità

HTC One Mini, come preannunciato nelle scorse ore, è stato finalmente svelato ufficialmente. Il modello ridimensionato dell’attuale top di gamma HTC One è finalmente tra noi, scoprite tutti i dettagli che lo riguardano nel resto dell’articolo!

HTC One Mini è un concentrato di potenza racchiuso in una scocca piccola (secondo gli standard odierni), ma è sopratutto un dispositivo estremamente elegante: design ricercato, telaio in alluminio, schermo in vetro e dimensioni compatte lo rendono uno smartphone incredibile dal punto di vista estetico e costruttivo.

HTC One Mini, essendo un “piccolo” One, può vantare un reparto fotografico veramente all’avanguardia: fra tutti gli smartphone di questa taglia è senz’altro uno dei migliori dispositivi adatti all’utilizzo multimediale (escludendo il Galaxy S4 Zoom). Ma entriamo più nello specifico. Quali caratteristiche tecniche vanno a definire il profilo hardware del nuovo HTC One Mini? Ecco la scheda completa:

  • Display da 4,3 pollici HD (1280×720 pixel)
  • CPU Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 dual-core da 1,4 GHz
  • 1 GB di RAM DDR2
  • 16 GB di memoria integrata
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n
  • DLNA
  • GPS + Glonass
  • Modulo LTE
  • Fotocamera con tecnologia UltraPixel, sensore 1/3 pollici e sensore BSI, apertura F/2.0
  • Fotocamera frontale da 1,6 Megapixel
  • Batteria da 1.800 mAh
  • Android 4.2.2
  • Dimensioni: 132 x 63.2 x 9.25 millimetri
  • Peso: 122 grammi

La fotocamera è il vero vanto di HTC One Mini, dato che eredita dal fratello maggiore gran parte delle caratteristiche e funzionalità: come potevamo immaginare la fotocamera adotta tecnologia Ultrapixel, ha il sensore BSI per catturare meglio la luce in condizioni di scarsa luminosità, apertura focale f/2.0, lenti da 28 mm ed un sensore da 1/3 pollici. C’è lo smart flash, grazie al quale viene impostata una differente luminosità del flash LED in base alla distanza dell’obbiettivo dal soggetto. La fotocamera principale gira video a 1080p (anche in HDR), è presente anche la funzione di registrazione in slow motion e di scatto continuo. La fotocamera frontale è da 1,6 Megapixel con sensore BSI e ripresa video a 720p. Non manca la funzionalità caratteristica della Sense 5HTC Zoe.

HTC One Mini sarà disponibile in alcuni mercati selezionati nel mese di Agosto, mentre il rilascio a livello globale avverrà nel mese di Settembre. Vi lasciamo con una galleria di immagini, un video hands-on ed il comunicato stampa in lingua originale:
