Continuing the trend of creating mini variants of high-end flagship phones, HTC is reportedly building an improved mini version of its One M8 called the "HTC One Mini 2".

Like its elder sibling (M8), the One Mini 2 also flaunts three colour variants, namely brushed gunmetal, silver, and gold, as depicted by a leaked screenshot from reputed tipster, @evleaks.

HTC One Mini 2 Leaked Photo Reveals Silver, Gold and Gunmetal Variants
@evleaks tweets the leaked screenshot of upcoming HTC One Mini 2 which is expected to release in three colour variants: Gunmetal, Silver and Gold.

The One Mini 2 reportedly lacks the prominent dual-sensor Duo Camera and the dual LED flash, unlike the One M8.

Given the leaked photo, the Mini 2 is expected to feature a smaller display with a premium metal body and a plastic rim around the screen.

The second iteration of the One Mini apparently features more metal on its body than the original, besides shipping with repositioned sensors and the power button.

Despite the cosmetic changes, the new One Mini undoubtedly looks identical to the One M8. Nevertheless, the One Mini 2 is a downscaled version of the M8 which is basically focused on budget consumers.

There is no other information about the phone's specifications, price or release date at the moment.
