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.
