It does seem as though it is trendy for smartphone manufacturers to roll out a “mini” version of a model that is doing well on the market, flagships included. HTC is one of those, where despite being beleaguered due to poor sales figures in comparison to the likes of Samsung, Motorola, Apple and LG among others, they still have the capability to churn out good smartphones, including the HTC One. Heck, the HTC One (M7) did have its smaller sidekick, the HTC One mini, and this time around, it seems as though the recently introduced HTC One (M8) too, would be on the receiving end of a HTC One (M8) mini.
Swedish carrier Telia mentioned that in a blog post concerning HD voice, where it touts the handsets that will offer support for this technology, and the M8 and M8 Mini have been listed, alongside the HTC One and HTC One Mini. Is this a glimpse to what the future will be able to offer, or has there been some information that was lost in translation? Another rumor concerning the HTC One (M8) mini hails from @evleaks.
Hopefully the HTC One (M8) mini will not be as disappointing as the LG G2 Mini, as it remains to be seen the kind of hardware that HTC will throw for the HTC One (M8) mini, so it can be pretty difficult to form an opinion based on hearsay. Do you think that the HTC One (M8) mini will be realized eventually, and how well do you think it will be able to sell?
