HTC One M8 mini to be available in May in HTC's home country
No, HTC hasn’t confirmed the existence of the rumored One M8 mini yet, but a new report from Taiwan (the company’s home country) informs us that the smartphone will be available there starting May. Last month, a story coming out of the UK stated the same thing: HTC is getting ready to introduce a mini version of its One M8 sometime in May.

While the One M8 that’s already available to purchase sports a 5-inch 1080p display, it’s said that the M8 mini would feature a 4.5-inch 720p screen. Other features should include a 13MP rear camera (without HTC’s UltraPixel technology), quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory. Just like its bigger brother, the One M8 mini should run Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6.0 UI.

HTC seems to be happy with initial One M8 sales, and it probably has high hopes when it comes to the M8 mini, too. But the company needs to be careful on the price tag attached to this mini smartphone. Ever since Motorola introduced its Moto G at the end of last year, we tend to view mid-end handsets differently, in the way that they should be really affordable. 

Well, let’s hope we’ll find out more about the One M8 mini soon.
