Days after a full sized HTC One M8 was rolled out in Australia speculation has it that a mini version is set to follow.
According to Trusted Reviews the latest gossip is that HTC is planning to introduce a HTC One mini later this year as a mid-range alternative to the HTC One M8.
Firstly, notorious tech tipser @evleaks issued a tweet saying simply “M8 mini: Check”, hours after the HTC One M8 was launched on Tuesday, March 25.
Then Swedish carrier Telia listed the M8 mini in a blog post regarding HD voice and phones that had compatibility for the technology.
The reference has since been removed, but that wasn’t before Unwired View spotted the leak.
There are no rumoured specs for the HTC One M8 mini or any indication as to when it will be announced, but it wouldn’t be out of the question for HTC to pull such a move.
HTC already launched a larger and smaller version of the 2013 flagship HTC One in the HTC One mini and finger-print sensor wielding HTC One Max.
The HTC One M8 itself features a 5-inch full 1080p HD display running Android 4.4 KitKat with the new HTC Sense 6 UI.
It runs on a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 2GB of RAM and is powered by a 2600mAh battery.
In the rear is a HTC Duo twin-sensor camera, which pairs the main 4-megapixel UltraPixel f/2.0, 1/3-inch sensor with a secondary sensor to allow better depth capture in photographs. This is complemented by a dual-LED flash too.
This dual-sensor rear camera is paired with an upgraded 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
Unlike the 2013 model, the HTC One M8 has a microSD card slot with support up to 128GB.
It does retain the aluminium body and dual front-facing stereo HTC Boomsound speakers though.
