HTC M8 (One 2) Mini specs leaked: 4.5-inch 720p screen, Android KitKat, Snapdragon 400 CPU

It appears that the small variant of HTC's M8 / One 2 will be a bit larger than last year's HTC One Mini. The handset should have on-screen keys, the latest version of Android, and MicroSD card slot...

Oh yeah, from this we can assume that the M8 will come with Micro-SD expansion and higher megapixel count cameras. Sweet!!

Moto G specs with double the price. Beside the better camera.

Wow. The only other change I see is the addition of a Micro SD Card slot.... I'll stick with the Moto G, without the Sense skin on top this Moto G flies.

slightly better cpu, too. It also gets microSD card support, which is great.
But well, if it's really double the price of the Moto G, it won't be worth it anyway.

yea, Moto G specs, except for a better front and rear camera, better speakers, better cpu, aluminum body, higher internal capacity, micro SD slot, etc...! so yea almost the same spec but higher price

Better cpu???no worries moto G is already running fine and handles most of Hd games out there...
Aluminium body...no thanks...Plastic is more durable ,also not prone to scratches, and doesn't interfere with radio signals.....
High internal memory??? Moto G too has 16GB model...
Micro SD...i accept with you in this...SD card is one of the important features...
Better speakers...Ofcourse....but i don't care about it...cuz who listen music without HS...
And don't miss the better radio signals in moto devices...
and for half the price...moto G is the winner...

The Moto G doesn't have LTE bands so that's a nonstarter for me and many others.

go for the Sony Xperia SP...
almost the same specs,just 4.4 update otw..

Go for this year's one , only slightly bigger but way better specs
25. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
I think Xperia ZR or ZL is a much better
alternative, because i'm pretty sure that One 2 mini will be in the same price range with ZR and ZL.

the Sp is faster then both and much much cheaper, with the badass lights at the bottom to boot
31. amro99 (Posts: 76; Member since: 29 Nov 2012)
i dont know if you have ever had a sony smartphone or not. my sister has a SP (which is a 2013 model), the camera is from 2008 i guess (though 8MPX)! the wifi sgnal is too weak, and the phone is way slower than its first day, although less than 15 apps have been installed since then, and the screen quality, though HD, is cr@p
43. apple4never (Posts: 917; Member since: 08 May 2013)
you got a defect bro, i have crappy wifi at my house and its always connected, camera is great for a midranger and the screen is fine just the angles are bad
26. apple4never (Posts: 917; Member since: 08 May 2013)
Yeah Xperia sp for the win!! its awesome
2. mr.techdude (Posts: 536; Member since: 19 Nov 2012)
Why haven't they put higher specs so that consumers who are spec savvy but don't want big screens, this would have been a good choice but,.....,
6. bucky (Posts: 1288; Member since: 30 Sep 2009)
See, that's exactly what I was thinking too. I would like to see a manufacturer keep the same specs in the mini version-they can even keep the same price. That's a proper way to satisfy different users.
20. Ant34 (Posts: 193; Member since: 10 Aug 2013)
It's probably targeted to an audience who can't afford a phone with high end specs.
23. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
but the problem is the price of htc mini phones are in the same price range with other phones that usually has better specs.
10. datphoneguy (Posts: 136; Member since: 15 Sep 2013)
Agreed. HTC could have pulled a Xperia Z1 Compact with the mini....that would have been amazing.
3. Insignificant (Posts: 189; Member since: 22 Sep 2012)
It really looks like the Z1 compact can be a hit. No competition from HTC (not even surprised) means it's Samsung and LG left. And both have horrendous designs and build quality - that's not going to appeal to iStupidfans.
4. newbey123 (Posts: 378; Member since: 19 Mar 2012)
Sounds like a winner! Though I will go for the regular M8 or the Max version
5. Ayron (Posts: 4; Member since: 01 Jan 2014)
13MP rear and 5MP front facing camera?!?! HTC is finally stepping it up
11. datphoneguy (Posts: 136; Member since: 15 Sep 2013)
Looks like HTC may have ditched the whole ultrapixel idea which is GREAT news
7. Gregor (Posts: 22; Member since: 26 Nov 2013)
Good job HTC! But the SoC could have been Snapdragon 600.
8. outlawog (Posts: 47; Member since: 27 Nov 2013)
HTC are finally listening to the their customers, quick with the updates, and now they've hopefully sorted out that ultra pixel gimmick, or atleast improved it. I can only imagine that the One 2's camera will be better than the mini with perhaps a 8 MP Ultra pixel camera. However this wasnt the case with the two devices last year as they both sported the same camera. We can only hope that HTC executes this device nicely ;)
9. datphoneguy (Posts: 136; Member since: 15 Sep 2013)
Whoa...MicroSD for the mini?
Hope the same is true for the non-mini version as well!!
13. UglyFrank (Posts: 331; Member since: 23 Jan 2014)
Even an S4 pro would've been better than that
17. pyradark (Posts: 738; Member since: 10 Jun 2012)
Z1 compact still the best!! Beat that HTC
22. T.F.O.A (Posts: 36; Member since: 14 Dec 2013)
Nokia 3310 the best of the best of the... Yeah we already knew. lol
33. pyradark (Posts: 738; Member since: 10 Jun 2012)
Of course its untouchable.
I have one for over 10 years and still doesn't failed me!!!
21. Mube007 (Posts: 71; Member since: 24 Sep 2013)
Moto g is really a gud phone with dual sim slot
24. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2097; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
After the Z1 compact, HTC should have stepped up their game for this one. The Snap 600 & 2GB RAM should have been a minimum. Smh @ HTC once again.
28. Birds (Posts: 958; Member since: 21 Nov 2011)
Considering the time frame, I seriously doubt HTC knew about the Z1 Compact. My biggest complaint about the M8 mini is the ram. For me, the amount of ram is what separates a mid-range device from a high end one. 2 gigs of ram could make this device scream even with a snapdragon 400. Like FRFR, if they are going to price it high, it should ship with 2 gigs of ram not 1. This device shouldn't be higher than 379$ simply for the low ram amount.

Those companies get information about other companies really fast... you would be impressed by the spy-like work they do...
At the end of last year my uncle received at his Beach Inn, some tech guys from ZTE with a supposed prototype of the upcoming Galaxy S5 with 16MP camera that was being used for testing with the ZTE flagship...
I didn't believe him at first, being so early... but after hearing rumors of the upcoming S5 with 16MP camera... well there you go...
HTC probably knew quite a bit about Z1 Compact... but they are sticking to a slightly cheaper alternative... I think...
32. g2a5b0e (Posts: 2097; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
I agree with buccob on this one. The exact specs for the Z1 Compact or Z1f as it was originally known, were leaked months ago. HTC had to have known about about it. They chose not to compete with it. It's a mistake that HTC can't afford to make. Samsung, on the other hand, their devices sell by the boatload anyway. If they choose to take this approach with the S5 mini (read: they probably will), it will still sell more than any other "mini" version. HTC is just quite simply & proverbially shooting themselves in the foot--the same thing they've been doing for many years now.

In my eyes the original one mini has better specs 1.4GHz dual core krait 300 should be way faster then 1.4GHz quad core cortex A7! The camera looks a lot better
My dream specs for this phone
Quad core 1.6GHz cortex A7/Dual core 1.7GHz S4 pro krait 300
Adreno 320/adreno 305@650
The camera should be bumped to 8UltraPixel or 13MP
3/5MP front camera
Dual LED flash
32GB internal storage
38. Eclectech (Posts: 54; Member since: 01 May 2013)
I'll reserve judgement to the official unveiling but the alleged camera specs look very promising. Looks like the pixel war is back on.

Dont have money for the Htc One (2014) but i'm going to buy the mini instead
44. hurrycanger (Posts: 763; Member since: 01 Dec 2013)
Why not just get the HTC One of 2013? By then it would be below $400 for a brand new unit. :D
42. Ankit24 (Posts: 1; Member since: 09 Feb 2014)
specs are good enough.
pleased to see no Ultra pixel cameras and availability of Card slot.
but i would have prefered Snapdragon 600 and 2GB ram (1.5 at least)
Hope to see...
full HD video support
Adreno 320 and 2100 mAh + battery.
n please please HTC price is wisely.
