HTC One M8 mini listed by a Swedish carrier - is it coming anytime soon?
While HTC announced only one new One smartphone this week, it looks more and more like a second model - a mini - will also be introduced at some point.

Well-known leakster @evleaks hinted at a new HTC One mini several times until now. And today, Swedish carrier Telia mentioned an HTC M8 mini in a blog post listing devices which are compatible with HD voice services. Telia also lists last year’s HTC One, One mini and One max, so the presence of the M8 mini there probably isn’t just a mistake.

HTC One M8 mini listed by a Swedish carrier - is it coming anytime soon?
 course, we still can’t be sure that a mini M8 will be officially released anytime soon, or ever. If it will, though, it could feature a 4.5-inch 720p display (according to previous rumors), thus being a bit larger than the original One mini, which offers a 4.3-inch screen. Other expected features include Android KitKat with Sense 6.0 UI, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.4GHz, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable internal memory. 

Interestingly, it’s said that this alleged HTC One M8 mini won’t have a dual camera on the back (like the 5-inch M8), but a regular camera with a 13MP sensor. A 5MP front-facing camera should complete the specs sheet. Now all we need is a confirmation from HTC on these details.

why is it manufacturers put weaker guts in the smaller versions of the flagship phones. I don't want a 5"+ phone but I want the power and good camera, high quality screen. 1gb RAM? Seriously?

Yeah, the mini HTC One will be the same size as the S5 and all its other competitors, because the HTC One M8 is just so damn unnecessarily huge.

the regular m8 is 4.4mm taller than the s5 and shorter than the z2 so all of them are pretty huge

They should learn with Z1 compact and reduce size, not specs, because I couldn't care less about screens over 4.5 inches. As for specs, I can't say I don't care whether it's a dual or quad, or if it has 1 or 2 gigs of ram, because it does make a huge difference to me, unlike display size.

Well let's hope it's actually a mini device in size but my guess is its going to be just like last time where the og mini wasn't that much smaller.
