HTC One (M8) Mini Reportedly Headed for Verizon

According to a tweet from @evleaks, Verizon is soon to feature the upcoming One (M8) Mini from HTC, a device which still has yet to be unveiled. Not much is known about the M8 Mini, however, a few rumors have given the device a list of specs which we should expect, but they are not very titillating. 

The Mini variant of the M8 is rumored to feature a 4.5″ (mini?) 720p display, a 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 13MP rear-facing camera, 5MP front-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0, Sense 6, on-screen buttons, and come running Android 4.4.2 at launch.

While the device does not sound all too “mini,” its spec sheet doesn’t paint the sexiest of pictures. Although, we wouldn’t mind to see what that 13MP shooter is capable of compared to HTC’s UltraPixel currently seen in the One (M8).

Once more details are leaked or possibly made official from HTC or Verizon, we shall update you.

    Guys I had this problem…let your phone die mine got fixed when it turner back on…strange but true http://bit.ly/1gV0LAi

  • Jeffrey Fazal

    interested in HTC whether it is M8 or M8 (mini) as I am satisfied with my Nexus
    5 with much better specs and hardware features like qi charger compatible then
    this piece of scrap.

  • LionStone

    Great! This’ll be perfect for my girl.

  • RustyTechGuy

    Agreed Cesar

  • Ryan O’Neill

    OEMs make crappy “mini” phones, so no one buys them.
    No one buys “mini” phones, so OEMs spend less money on them.

    It’s a never-ending cycle.

    • BeenSayingItAllAlong

      Pretty much. Hard to “vote with your wallet” when the choices of voting all suck.

  • flosserelli

    HTC, you are doing it wrong (again). The whole point of a “mini” is to have the same or very similar experience in a smaller form factor. Users won’t get the same experience with a paltry 1 GB RAM and 1.4 GHz Snapdragon. It just ain’t gonna happen. The only specs this phone gets right are the 13 MP camera and 4.4.2 Kit Kat. Please go back to the drawing board and let us know when you have a device worthy to be called “M8 Mini”.

  • Cesar

    The “mini” has a better camera than the full version. That gave me a good chuckle.

    • Pedro

      But it’s only StandardPixel (R)

      Ultra ain’t free, bro.

    • Justtyn Hutcheson

      Higher resolution. Better is yet to be seen.
      The FFC on the M8 has a higher resolution than the rear camera, but nobody would ever claim it is a better camera.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Meh, decent specs I guess. What about the OnePlusOne? They figure out how they are selling that thing yet?….since tomorrow is supposed to be their release date.

    • Jordan Webb

      1 GB of RAM in 2014 is pretty damn sad.

      • Charlie R.

        Yeah, but a camera that could (and probably will) blow the M8’s away. Also, an arguably better size.

      • T4rd

        Indeed. This is really the only area where I don’t want the phone skimping on. Even with Kitkat, 1GB of RAM will be pretty limiting on how many apps/services can run in the background.

  • Buckoman

    The only reason I didn’t buy the M8 is because of its camera.

    • patt

      so you are a pro photographer ? 😀 I sold my S4 5 months ago got ip 5S and was playing with my friends HTC M8 and I loved the camera and it also takes sweet pics in dark places.

      Not sure what is the hate..

      • Buckoman

        Never said that, but basically, though the pictures look sharp on first glance, if you zoom in, they turn to garbage. If I take a picture of something and want to set it as my wallpaper, I at least want it to be decently clear.

        Respect for the low light capabilities, though.

        • getoverit

          Agree, but for mobile photos, the M8 is better than the S5, sure I can’t blow them up to 16X20, but they are ALWAYS in focus and look great. DSLR is the way to go if you’re looking for wall-hanging material.

    • iNomNomAwesome

      I won’t even consider the M8 because it’s so damn tall.

  • Blue Sun

    I’m sure this is great news for somebody… (crickets).
