HTC One M8 mini to be launched in May?
According to 3G.co.uk, HTC intends to start selling the One M8 mini in May. There is no word on how much the M8 mini will cost, and neither if it’s going to be widely available around the world (it probably will be, though).
Previous rumors had it that the One M8 mini would feature a 4.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, quad-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a 13MP rear camera (no UltraPixel technology, and no dual lens here). Android 4.4 KitKat and the new Sense 6.0 UI should be on board. The One M8 mini will likely keep the same all-metal design of the larger M8.
Just a few days ago, a Swedish carrier listed the One M8 mini on one of its blogs, so the handset might indeed be revealed in the near future. Is anyone looking forward to seeing it?

Specs sound good enough, especially when it's only pushing 720p screen. I'd still have 1,5gb or 2gb of RAM, but I guess 1gb is enough.

I've come to realize that today, 1 gb of RAM is not enough in our android smartphones.
I would love to keep my old phone if I could upgrade its memory. This is the main motivation for me to get a newer phone.

Once again I say this: why call it with the name of a flagship device if it doesn't really share anything with that flagship...

PLEASE give a reasonable price to it HTC! Last year's Mini failed to catch steam just because of it

If they do it like Sony did with the Z1 compact (same stuff, smaller package) I'll be in for one. The 2 flaws of the M8 that keeps me from buying it: Camera fiasco (loved the ultrapixel camera, but 1 year later they should've learned how to increase its resolution, maybe doubling it.) and, it's a little too big for me to handle (not that I have tiny hands, but I'd like something smaller, and not as huge as the note 3)

that's the key. Same specs in a smaller package and I will definitely buy it. But rumors have it with half the ram. Why?

Me too I need a new phablet and can't wait much longer for the Note 4

Good, but I think that will be two problems: bezels and price. At least a $350.

Its gonna be the same size as the original One but called mini.

I'm interested. If I had any inkling that it would be offered by VZW then I probably would have held out for the mini instead of getting the M8, because I don't need such a big screen and I prefer less weight.

i'm currently using the M8 and it's easily the best Android I've used. Silky smooth. This phone could be the gateway 'Droid for all the iPhone users that have been curious. Especially for women or guys with small hands that prefer that iPhone 5 size. All the usual rhetoric that i hear from iPhone loyalists (it just works, no lag, graphics, speed, blah blah blah) is accomplished and then some... A LOT some. To have the M8 and M8 mini would be a serious one-two for HTC and Android in general.
*Try the M8, even if you carry the M7...it's a whole new ballgame.
