The HTC One (M8) may be the halo device for the company, but we're definitely expecting to see more from One family. Last year, HTC released the One Mini and One Max to compliment the original One (M7), and what looks to be the Mini (M8) 2 has leaked out in a new render.
Unsurprisingly, the render of the smartphone looks very similar to that of its bigger brother, but you won't find the Duo Camera setup and dual LED flash on this device. Instead, a 13 megapixel camera and single LED flash will be found on the rear of the One Mini 2.
The leak comes to us by none other than @evleaks, who hinted at the specifications of this particular smartphone back in February. If the rumored specs indeed turn out to be true and nothing has changed since that time, they'll read a little like this: 4.5-inch 720p HD display, 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, Micro SD card slot, 13 megapixel rear camera, and 5 megapixel front-facing camera.
The 13 megapixel shooter on the One Mini 2 is going to delight quite a few people. The Ultrapixel camera on the One (M8) can take some very good low-light shots, among other things, but your ability to zoom in on photos is crippled. A 13 megapixel camera on a smartphone that's aimed towards the lower-end market is impressive.
The likelihood of the One Mini 2 being a reality is rather great, so it's only a matter of time until HTC decides to announce it. That said, it likely wants to give the original M8 some breathing room.
