New HTC One mini 2 shows up at the GCF
Expected to be officially announced later this month, the HTC One mini 2 (aka HTC One M8 mini) appeared at the GCF today. 

Since the GCF (Global Certification Forum) is an official “independent certification scheme for mobile phones and wireless devices that are based on 3GPP standards”, the existence of the One mini 2 is now pretty much confirmed.

It seems that this particular One mini 2 that was certified by the GCF is the European model, as it comes with LTE bands mainly used in Europe (bands 3, 7, 8 and 20). However, that doesn’t mean the handset won’t have a US version. In fact, we already heard that Verizon may launch the new One mini at some point.

Not long ago, we saw the One mini 2 in three color variants, and even in a hands-on photo. The new handset should be slightly larger than last year’s One mini, allegedly sporting a 4.5-inch 720p display. Other features should include a 13MP rear camera (no UltraPixel technology), quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable internal memory. Like the 5-inch One M8, the HTC One mini 2 will run Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6.0 UI. Well, we're now waiting for HTC to finally announce the handset.
