With its latest flagship handset, HTC has once again proved that it is doing things differently. The HTC One (M8) is the sequel to the critically-praised HTC One, released around 12 months ago.
Now, barely weeks after the launch of the HTC One (M8), it is being reported that the mini version of the phone will be out soon.
The news of the mini version of the HTC One (M8) had been making rounds even before the HTC One (M8) was officially launched.
However, since there had been no confirmations from HTC, the news had been treated as a rumor nothing much.
HTC One M8 Mini-Alleged Picture leaks out
Looks like the HTC One M8 Mini will be out sooner than expected, if the latest picture leak turns out to be accurate.
What you're looking at a purported image of the HTC One M8 Mini. The device appears very similar to the original HTC One (M8), giving us a clear view of the front and rear-back. In the image the handset appears to have a protective case on.
At the same time, you can see missing duo-camera setup on the phone's back. HTC One (M8) has a 4-megapixel rear-facing camera alongside another camera which acts like a sensor to capture the depth information.
HTC One M8 Mini- What to expect?
The mid-end phone is said to be similar in looks to the recently launched HTC One (M8) but will have a smaller 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 720p. The phone will be powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor coupled with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory. Furthermore, the device is expected to run Android 4.4 Kitkat with HTC's native Sense 6.0 UI on top of it.
Since HTC is officially refusing to comment on the smartphone, it is not known if the mid-range handset would be launched next-month. Watch this space for more action!
2014 is shaping up to the blockbuster year for HTC. Besides the HTC One M8 Mini, the company is reportedly coming up with few more devices over the course of the next few weeks and months.
Take a look into sliders below to know more about forthcoming HTC-made smartphones that we think could change the handset market for ever.
HTC is now said to be preparing a handset codenamed ‘M8 Prime' to take on Samsung's forthcoming Galaxy S5 Prime. Just a day back, @eveleaks teased the new handset on Twitter. "Forget the Ace," he wrote. "What y'all are really waiting for is codenamed M8 Prime." @evleaks did not share more details about potential specs or launch dates for the device. However, it is being said that the HTC One (M8) Prime would have a 2K display and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.
Sources close to Engadget revealed that the HTC M8 Ace will be a plastic device that will be launched to crush Samsung's Galaxy S5. Apparently, the HTC M8 Ace will possess the exact similar specs as the Galaxy S5. Talking about the internal hardware, the device may feature a 5-inch FHD display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, and will be priced less than the Samsung Galaxy S5.
HTC could be making the Nexus 6, if sources close to Tech Times are to be believed. Google is reportedly switching the Nexus 6 project from LG to Taiwan's HTC. Apparently, Google wants the Nexus 6 to be a premium device on the lines of Apple iPhone.
Following the launch of HTC One (M8), HTC has already started working to launch a mini variant of the flagship phone, dubbed the HTC One M8 Mini. According to a report from ePrice, Taiwanese giant HTC will launch the HTC One M8 Mini in its native homeland sometime this month. There's no word yet on what the phone might retail but the original HTC One Mini was launched at Rs. 36,790 in India, so logically speaking the HTC One Mini M8 would cost the same.
