HTC One mini and Desire 500 now available online in India
Two of HTC's latest smartphones, the One mini and the Desire 500, are now available online in India. Both the devices have been listed on Flipkart, with the HTC One mini available at Rs. 37,299, and the Desire 500 listed as out of stock at a price of Rs. 21,490. The Taiwanese handset maker is yet to officially unveil either of the smartphones in India.

Recently, the HTC Desire 500 was up for pre-orders through an online retailer for a booking amount of Rs. 999. Meanwhile, the HTC One mini has been due to be launched in India for a while now, but never appeared on online retail sites before this.

The HTC One mini was unveiled back in July; the device features the same design as that of its elder sibling, the HTC One. It also features the same BoomSound speakers, though they're smaller compared to the ones featured in the HTC One. The HTC One mini sports a 4.3-inch S-LCD3 display with a resolution of 720x1280 pixels and pixel density of 341ppi. It is powered by a 1.4 GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and has 1GB of RAM. It comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage but doesn't feature any external expansion options. The smartphone runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with HTC's Sense 5 UI layer on top, and includes HTC's BlinkFeed UI. The HTC One mini sports the same UltraPixel Camera (with a 4-megapixel lens) that the HTC One boasts of.

On the other hand, the Desire 500 is powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor along with 1GB of RAM. The phone measures 131.8x66.9x9.9mm and weighs 123 grams. It features a 4.3-inch WVGA (480x800 pixels) display. There is 4GB inbuilt storage that can be further expandable up to 64GB with the help of microSD card. An 8-megapixel rear camera can be found at the back accompanied by an LED flash. There is also a 1.6-megapixel front camera. The Desire 500 can record videos at 720p and also features Beats Audio.
