HTC One M8 Mini release plans rumored

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 quite a bit.

According to UK retail sources, HTC is planning for the One M8 Mini to go up for sale sometime during the month of May.

We don’t yet know what that means about any launch announcement itself, and if HTC might aim for a repeat of the One M8’s launch and make the phone available for sale just hours after its press debut.

We’ve already heard some detailed specs for the phone, but should we be rethinking them in the light of the One M8’s launch? Back at the start of February, the word was that the M8 Mini might get a 13MP main camera; seeing the One M8’s Duo Camera for what it is (another UltraPixel), we’re hard-pressed to believe that 13MP could still be in the running. Should we start reconsidering other details, like the 4.5-inch 720p screen, as well?
