All signs are pointing to an AT&T HTC One mini release at some point down the road and it appears that one roadblock in that road to release has been hurdled as the device has seemingly passed through the FCC on its way to AT&T’s network.
In July, HTC announced a smaller version of the HTC One dubbed HTC One mini that is slated to arrive on shelves starting this month. In the United Kingdom, the device is expected in just a few days.
At the time, HTC said that the device would be heading to the United States and from appearances, it’s clear that it will be.
The AT&T HTC One mini has leaked out numerous times in recent days on its way to shelves and while AT&T isn’t saying anything, it’s clear that an announcement will take place at some point. Rumors have not been able to pinpoint a date for the AT&T HTC One mini’s arrival but we now know that it should be coming at some point soon.
The device has shown up passing through the FCC on its way to AT&T’s 4G LTE network. An FCC filing typically means that a device is only days or weeks away from release meaning an AT&T HTC One mini announcement could be near.
AT&T’s miniature HTC One has made itself known to the world recently through several leaks that have exposed just about every piece of information there is to know about the device. From its 4.3-inch 720p display, to its dual-core processor, to its metal design, the AT&T HTC One mini will be similar to the international model that is headed to shelves soon.
It is, however, unclear as to just how much AT&T will be charging for the HTC One mini. Given its smaller stature in terms of size and specifications, it’s likely that it will come with a cheaper price tag than the larger HTC One which checks in at $199.99 on-contract.
