First real-life image of HTC One mini 2 surfaces, shows playful color accents

It’s a catchy design, and we like the idea of the added color, however, we are not completely certain whether this added color is not just for this particular testing prototype, so don’t take this colorful element for granted. Otherwise, the all-aluminum body seems to match the looks and soft finish of the HTC One (M8). Our tipster also confirmed that the new One mini 2 will use on-screen buttons, just like the M8.
The One mini 2 is expected to run on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat with the newest HTC Sense 6.0. Its specs are said to include a 4.5-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 system chip and a 13-megapixel camera with single LED flash.
The HTC One mini 2 release date could be as soon as later this month, so it might not be long until we see it officially.
Hat tip to our anonymous tipster!
snapdragon 400 and 1 gig of memory lol, next joke phone please.

Not a lot of need a top tier phone. Most consumers call, text, and browse the internet. Of course the hardware will degrade over time, but for a lot of people, this isn't an issue. If money is an issue, the OnePlus One will fix this issue with good specs and a cheap price, for people who can't normally get their phone for $200 on contract in the US and other places.

You do know there are non tech geeks out there? This is a compelling mid-range offering, an HD screen, great set of cameras for a mid range device(13mp+5mp), dual speakers and it comes with 16GB of onboard storage which is the same as GS5 and One M8. The market that is set for this phone is for people who don't know what a Snapdragon 800 is and couldn't care less about it.

My only take on it is the 1gb of ram, 2gb would've make it better. The Sd 400 isn't a problem since you have a 720 screen resolution and kitkat should be running out of the box. If priced right, this will be a good choice for those who don't like big phones.

Is it too hard to have a high specced device in a small body. If sony,apple and motorola can do it why can't the rest of the manufacturers do it

Sorry, but that looks like an HTC One (M7). The M8 series does not have the plastic band around the phone edges.

M7 had a black power key and LED flash placed much closer to the camera. M7 mini had the flash in the wrong place. This should be the M8 mini.

Sony might be laughing at this right now. They won't need much effort to make the eventual Z2 compact the best compact phone, again.

Sony? Sorry, I live in the US and I thought Sony stopped making phones.The Z2 Compact sounds similar to that previous vaporware phone, the Z1 Compact. Sony is really making phones again? I will believe it when I see it.

why only 1Gb of RAM? Do they really think the only people that want smaller phones are mid range phone buyers?

It would be great if it was 2gb RAM however trying out the HTC one mini 2013 I felt that it was running very smoothly and that was jelly bean It must be even better now with 4.4 kitkat. I also think it should be able to handle most tasks fine. There is a video speed comparison between the HTC one m7 and mini (m4?) and the mini did very well, except for say Intensive gaming, but then again I'm biased against graphic intensive mobile gaming personally! All that said Sony got it right with the Z1 compact, however it does not look likes sales were as great as expected have not heard about that phone in ages, makes me wonder if there will be a z2 compact?
