The alleged mini version
of HTC’s new One M8
flagship smartphone is supposed to be released in May
in Europe and Asia, but what about the US? Well, we don’t know exactly when the One M8 mini should land Stateside, but it seems that we know at least one carrier that’s going to sell it: Verizon Wireless.
According to @evleaks, the “HTC One M8 mini” is indeed “going to Verizon” - which is already selling the original One M8.
If the details revealed until now are correct, the HTC One M8 mini should be a mid-range handset that features: a 4.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6.0 UI, 13MP rear camera, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory. Since the 5-inch One M8 costs $200 on contract, we’re thinking that the M8 mini could be offered for less than $100 to those willing to purchase it subsidized.
the HTC One M8 mini hasn’t been pictured yet, so what we’re seeing above is just a double 5-inch One M8. Anyway, the mini version shouldn't look too different from the already-available M8 (although it appears that it won't have a Duo camera on the back).
