HTC One M8 mini version hinted, as well as an eventual M8 Ace phablet

HTC One M8 mini version hinted, as well as an eventual M8 Ace phablet
We've barely recovered from the smorgasbord of information surrounding the new HTC One M8 handset, and now @evleaks has started to hint about the inevitable mini version of the 5-inch flagship.

Last year, HTC issued an HTC One mini, which was small only in name, as it still had the BoomSound speakers at the front, making the tall aluminum frame appear much larger than what a 4.3" display usually warrants. We don't know if this will be the case with an eventual HTC One M8 mini this year, but the original is quite huge, when compared to some other 5-inchers out there. 

Still, where there's smoke, there's fire, and we've heard about a scaled down version of the One M8 a few times before, too. The rumored specs suggest a 4.5" 720p HD display, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage plus a microSD card, 13 MP rear, and a 5 MP front-facing cameras. Android 4.4.2 KitKat is supposed to be running the show, with the newest Sense 6.0 on top, and the mini variant is expected to sport the fashionable on-screen buttons. The tip also suggests a One M8 version codenamed Ace should be making the rounds at HTC, perhaps a sequel to the One max phablet, but this one remains a vague speculation for now.

Those who disappointed with M8 and don't want it due to less pixel camera (or whatever you say UP / Dual Camera) then wait / buy for M8 mini, I think it will please the public with its 13 MP camera.

BTW why not 2 GB RAM instead of 1 (One).

htc does not believe that the 4.5inch scren should have midrange spec and high specs on its flagship

sony believes the oppose side

z1 compact shuouldve had a 4inch version without ip57, it wouldve had less bezel and thickness

They are going to butcher the 13MP camera so that 4MP seems good enough

4.5 is now considered a phablet? Are they including the huge bezel's?

4.5 in a 5.0 body. At least the specs are ok. The real problem will be the price. I can figure at least $150 more expensive than Moto G.

It is surely a market selling method of htc and other smarthone brand else sony. If htc m8 mini get 13mp then why the hell m8 got an ultrapixel gimmick? On the other way m8 mini has snapdragon 400..really dissapointed
