It has only been a few hours since HTC unveiled its 2014 flagship smartphone, HTC One M8, and rumours are already rife that a mini version of the handset could be coming along soon.
Following the market release of HTC One (M7) in March last year, HTC unveiled the mini version of the smartphone featuring a 4.3in display and other technologies such as BlinkFeed, HTC Zeo and HTC BoomSound in July. So far there has been no official word on whether the new HTC One M8 will be followed by its mini version.
Meanwhile, notorious Twitter leaker evleaks has hinted that the HTC One M8 Mini is expected, with a tweet that reads, "M8: check M8 mini: check M8 Ace: ???"
As the tweet states, another variant of HTC One M8, which is M8 Ace is also expected. The M8 Ace is said to be a sequel of One Max, reports PhoneArena.
The latest disclosure does not reveal much about the features of the handsets. But last month evleaks leaked the technical specifications of HTC One M8 mini via Twitter. According to it, the M8 mini is expected to sport a 4.5in display with a 720p resolution. It will be powered by Snapdragon 400 ship featuring a quad core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, and paired with a 1GB RAM.
Besides, the smartphone is expected to have a 13 megapixel rear-camera and a five megapixel front camera. It will offer Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth v4.0. It will come with 16GB storage and support microSD card for storage expansion. The smartphone will run Android 4.4.2 KitKat and feature new Sense v6.0. One of the key features of the device is its on-screen navigation buttons.
