Unannounced HTC One M8 mini to be launched by Verizon

Unannounced HTC One M8 mini to be launched by Verizon
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.

Unfortunately, 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).

MP aren't everything. Who is making the sensor? HTC Titan 2 had 16MP camera and took crap photos.

So what? The 4 MP camera takes grainy photos. Can't be much worse than the 4 MP shooter the big brother has.....

Exactly. I find it funny how everybody forgot how bad HTC's cameras were in the past despite the high megapixel count, and are too blinded by the numbers to notice Ultrapixels are much better than anything HTC came up with before. GIV MOAR MEGAPIXELS HTC, NEED MEGAPIXELS

Well a 13 mp camera makes the mini more appealing than it's bigger brother ..

Wish this had specs like the One M7 plus sd card and 13mp.

HTC should make a real One M8 mini with all the specs of the larger M8 plus this phone's 13MP camera and put it in this mini form factor. That would be an interesting phone, especially for many people coming from an iPhone.

I thought S400 could be clocked only up to 1.6 GHz.

Yeah, "13 MP.............." and I think this mini will outsell his big brother M8. Everything is sounding pretty good but 2 GB RAM would be good with Snapdragon 800+ but its OK as it will keep the price low. And oh wait, does it have expandable memory option?

Screw this crap. The only two things this phone has on my Moto G is a 13 mp rear camera, and boom sound speakers. I bet it'll be priced $400-500 off contract. I'll stick with my $200 16 GB Moto G thanks. The solo rear speaker is loud enough and the 5 MP camera is worth the $200-300 savings.
