    In case you missed the announcement, the rumored HTC One mini 2 finally broke cover this morning, and it's just what the rumors said it would be: a pint-sized version of the company's well-received One M8 smartphone. Aesthetically, the One mini 2 is everything you'd expect from a mini metal One M8 – but true to form, HTC has made some sacrifices on the spec side. Under the hood, we're looking at a quad-core Snapdragon 400 (MSM8926) at 1.2GHz, leaning on a gig of RAM and 16GB of storage, with MicroSD cards up to 128GB supported. The display is a 4.5 inch LCD at 720p, the battery a 2100 ...

    While it's suffered nowhere near as much early exposure as its higher-end sibling, HTC's newest product has been breaking cover in bits and pieces since earlier this month. Today, the company finally took the wraps off of the "lite" version of its well-received HTC One M8, this time eschewing the latter's esoteric codename for the more straightforward "HTC One mini 2." Like its 2013 predecessor, the One mini 2 more closely resembles its big brother in looks than in specs. As we expected, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 sits under the hood, backed up by 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage ...

    When a smartphone manufacturer release a “mini” version of one of its flagship models, we fully expect some features to fall by the wayside. Sure, it would be nice if the only things that changed were handset dimensions and screen size, but this is the reality of the market. With the HTC One M8 mini (or One mini 2, depending on how it launches), we've already been anticipating some places where it might fail to mirror its big brother: it seems we're not getting another Duo Camera, for instance. Now a new rumor tries to reel-in our expectations a little bit more, spelling-out some of ...

    Is a little consistency too much to ask for from smartphone manufacturers? We pick up the So-And-So TalkMate II, enjoy our experience with it, and when it's time to shop for a new phone, we're on the lookout for the TalkMate III or IV. Sometimes it really is that simple, but then there are those manufacturers who can't seem to help themselves from constantly fiddling with branding. Liked that Galaxy S 4 Zoom last year? Unless you've been keeping up with the industry, would you ever know to look for the Galaxy K Zoom instead of the GS5 Zoom? Today's example of branding defying our ...

    HTC's One M8 starred in leak after leak before the handset officially launched, rendering many of its secrets an open book. While rumors have suggested that HTC's nearly ready to follow that model up with a One M8 Mini, we've had far less hard evidence to refer to. With claims that the phone could launch as early as May, are we ever going to get clued-in to its details before the handset gets a formal unveiling? Today may bring us one big step closer to understanding the One M8 Mini, with the release of the alleged render you see up top. One big question has been what HTC is planning for ...

    When the HTC One M8 debuted last month, Verizon scored a bit of a coup in the US, as while AT&T and Sprint joined in on the day-one sales action by offering the phone through their websites, only Verizon had the One M8 in its stores, ready for customers to walk in and pick up at their convenience. Eventually the other carriers were able to get in on the brick-and-mortar retail sales themselves, but not until after Verizon's head start. With the One M8 now here, rumors have shifted their attention to a possible One M8 Mini, and the latest gossip we've heard suggests that Verizon will be ...

    Even in the absence of any specific rumors to its existence, we'd still be expecting HTC to be working on a new Mini version of this year's One M8, just as we got the first One Mini several months following the launch of its own parent phone. But luckily for us, we're not working on pure guesswork, and a couple leaks have already gotten quite specific about this new Mini hardware. Late last week, we caught the latest reference to the smartphone, leaving us wondering just how soon it might launch. We still don't have a firm date available, but some new rumors sure narrow-down the window ...
