It's arguably the best smartphone the company has ever made, so it's unsurprising HTC is looking to capitalise on the praise being heaped onto the HTC One M8 with a Mini version. We'd heard previously that it was on its way, but what's surprising is quite how quickly that HTC is looking to turn it around -- a May launch in the UK is being reported.
3G.co.uk has spoken to a retailer that claims to have information on the launch, a source that has previously accurately detailed the release of the Sony Xperia E1.
In terms of specs, the HTC One M8 Mini will shrink down to 4.5-inches in size, with a 720p HD display looking likely. The Duo camera, capable of impressive bokeh shots in the full-fat M8, will be replaced with a standard single-sensor on the rear. [3G.co.uk via Unwired View via Trusted Reviews]
