News & Reviews: HTC One mini 2 specification
May 15, 2014
Confirming previous rumours about the mini version of the HTC One (M8), HTC have officially announced the HTC One Mini 2. Featuring the same brushed metal look as the larger version, the mini offers a 4.5-inch display with 720p pixel resolution making it slightly larger than the previous HTC One Mini. The most notable feature difference here though, is that there is no Duo camera, but HTC have opted for a conventional 13MP BSI camera sensor instead of the usual UltraPixel camera. Other tech specs include a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage, up to 128GB microSD support, 5MP front camera, GPS, NFC, 4G LTE and a 2100 mAh battery. No news on Malaysia pricing or specific Malaysia release dates yet but the HTC One Mini 2 is expected to be launched in North Asia by June 2014. The smartphone will come in the standard Amber Gold, Glacial Silver and Gunmetal Gray colours.

With the official announcement of the HTC One (M8) already done with, rumours are moving on to the mini version with many saying that the smaller version will be named the HTC One mini 2. Serial leaker @evleaks has chimed in with some renders of the HTC one mini 2 in gold, grey and silver along with the apparent lack of a Duo camera (the dual-camera in the HTC One M8). Other tech specs and features for the HTC One mini 2 include a 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage, 4.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixel resolution, 13MP rear camera, Android 4.4 KitKat and Sense 6.0. No specific news on Malaysia release dates or pricing but we expect this one soon, or at least around or after May 2014.

While the HTC M8 or next version of the HTC One has been making the rounds on the rumour mill, it appears that HTC may also come out with a HTC One mini 2 version as well. This comes courtesy of @evleaks who has offered up tech specs for the upcoming compact version of the HTC M8. These tech specs include a 4.5-inch display with 720p pixel resolution, a 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage + microSD, a 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera. The major differences with the original HTC One mini are the larger display, processor and cameras with microSD support but do take this with a pinch of salt as it seems rather unlikely that HTC is going to come out with a 13MP UltraPixel camera anytime soon. We'd love to be wrong in this, but it is wiser to be wary when it comes to rumours like this.
