Our favorite leaker has done it again. After he leaked almost every technical aspect of the HTC M8 (HTC One’s successor), @evleaks has now revealed the technical specifications of M8’s littler brother, the unofficially dubbed HTC M8 Mini.
Last year, the mid-range variant of HTC’s flagship, known as the HTC One Mini, has hit the market wearing the same full metal jacket of the One, while ditching most of its high-end features. But let’s forget about the previous Mini smartphone and let’s have a look at the specs of the future HTC M8 Mini.
According to the aforementioned leaker the handset will pack a 4.5-inch display with 1280 x 720 resolution, while the processing tasks will be handled by a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz. @evleaks also claims that M8 Mini will pack 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of native storage, plus microSD card slot, and 13 and 5 MP front and back cameras, respectively.
In terms of connectivity, the HTC M8 Mini will reportedly come with WiFi a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.0. The handset will allegedly run Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box with Sense 6.0 on top of it.
The HTC M8 Mini definitely sounds better than its predecessor in almost every aspect. Let’s make a quick comparison: it has a bigger display (4.5 inches up from 4.3 inches, though the resolution is the same), a more powerful processor (quad-core compared to dual-core for One Mini) and the camera now has 13 MP (last year the One Mini used a 4 UltraPixel shooter). Not to mention that the M8 Mini will sport a microSD card slot.
On the other hand, most of HTC M8 Mini’s technical specifications remind me of Motorola’s Moto G (display, CPU, RAM, internal storage). Will it be as cheap as the Moto G? I doubt it.
