AT&T has gotten first dibs in the United States on the HTC One Mini.

Making its debut in the U.S. this Friday, the diminutive smartphone will be offered exclusively to AT&T customers, the carrier announced on Monday. Buyers can pick up the phone for $99.99 with the standard two-year agreement.

The HTC One Mini borrows several features from its big brother but comes in a smaller, thinner, and lighter package. Equipped with a 4.3-inch LCD screen, the Mini offers a 720P display. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 dual-core 1.4 GHz processor provides the engine, while HTC's 4MP UltraPixel camera provides the photos.

Like the HTC One, the Mini also offers HTC BlinkFeed, a way to see all of your social network feeds and other updates from the home screen. HTC Zoe lets you shoot and edit a series of photos and a 3-second video. And HTC BoomSound pumps up the volume with dual front-facing speakers and a built-in amplifier.
